Strategy: For Jessica Whitaker, our main objective was to transform her brand from a do-it-yourself style to a professional, respected authority in the realm of photography education.

We established a one-of-a-kind brand with custom illustrations (in an Americana tattoo style), integrated a retro typography suite and color palette, and carried over these visual elements into her downloadable guides, website, and other applications.

Website Design: For Jessica, we designed and developed a user-friendly, visually captivating website that effectively communicates her brand’s message and services. The website exhibits a vibrant and artistic design that mirrors Jessica’s creative personality, featuring clear calls to action and an intuitive and fun navigation.
