ABOUT ME

Jessamine Jones is an American designer living in Oslo, Norway. She studied Graphic Design at the Savannah College of Art and Design where she earned a BFA as well as the knowledge to begin always looking at the world through eyes of a designer.

Post graduation she relocated to San Francisco where she worked as a freelance digital designer and got a taste of everything from web design, product design, branding and more. It is here that she put into practice a love for process driven design, a passion for elegant solutions to complex problems, and a need to express excitement by using the phrase “hella rad.”
