Jessica Brennan


The Next


Jessica is a multidisciplinary designer with a strong focus in editorial, typography and illustration in both print and digital design. To her, design is a means of visual expression that helps to express complex ideas with clarity while also getting to work with many unique people. Her lifelong interest in all things cute and pretty brought her to study illustration for 2 years. However, she quickly realized she didn’t enjoy the actual process of drawing and painting. She stumbled across design and through her four years in the YSDN program fell in love with it. With her background in illustration and a fine attention to detail she enjoys creating strong visual approaches that both serve a purpose and look beautiful. On the rare occasion she is not designing she enjoys watching the latest anime or playing games with her friends while having a slice of cake and a cup of tea.
