Well...it's certainly warm! Glad I am not squeezing out a monarch in this heat but best wishes to The Cambridge's. Hoping for some happy news soon. What an amazing summer 2013 is becoming, the Ashes wins, Lions wins, a 'British' winner for the tennis and the Tour de France and a tiny royal baby on the way, busy times!
I may have mentioned that I am getting married? So while I was working on my own wedding stationery I had a go at some others. I am seriously considering launching these as a new product range in the near future. I hope you like them.
Happy July lovely followers! I can't believe how wonderful the weather has been lately. All those dark, cold, shivering days of the bleak-mid-winter seem so far off. I LOVE SUMMER!
I have taken the decision to split up my design skills as I have realised that designJessica has lost its identity a tiny bit. I originally started 'designJessica' as part of my degree show and the re-incarnated it six years later as the company embodying all things designed by me. At the time is was just my freelance work and a little bit of corporate re-branding but as the years have gone on and my personalised prints have become more and more successful I think it's time to set them off on their own little journey with their own company. First Impressions has been launched!
I'm hoping that the change geoes smoothly and not too many people notice. New clients shouldn't be confused by what the company does and it'l be much easier for people to find the company. I'm hoping it pretty much says what it does on the tin now...time will tell.
On the prints front it's been a busy time. People have been buying them especially the canvases which I am going to launch on my etsy site soon. The hand and foot prints have become very popular too.
I'm hoping that they will become a real success but don't worry, this blog will pretty much remain unchanged and stay the ramblings of designer who is now just a little bit more branded.
I am a graphic and product designer and have been working commercially for over six years. I am currently working as a full time freelancer in Carterton, Oxfordshire creating print ready designs for a multitude of industries including children's publishing, commercial business premises, social stationery designs and surface pattern design.
Previously I have worked in children's publishing, greetings card design and stationery agencies after getting my BA (Hons) at Bath Spa University and graduating in 2006.
