\jes\ \fun duh vest-hay-zin\


I was born in Durban, South Africa, but my family emigrated to Annapolis, Maryland, where I grew up. I attended Boston University's School of Visual Arts, where I graduated with a BFA in graphic design, and minors in printmaking and communications, in 2015. I continued at BU for my masters, and earned an MS in communications and media entrepreneurship in 2016. Fortunately, this graduate program took me from Boston to Los Angeles, where I have stayed. I go to the beach every chance I get. 

My design process is to be completely sucked into a project, blink myself into reality hours later, drag myself to bed, and let my subconscious keep working. I compulsively love to design, to curate images into moodboards and art direction and then bring it all to life. I love to create and solve visual problems. Always game for a freelance project!

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss a possible project.
