MY NAME IS JESSICA REID.
I AM A FREELANCE DESIGNER
AND AVID ADVENTURIST.
Skills: igniting wanderlust through photography, designing stuff, & making gravy
Likes: rain, wine, wind, coffee, & looking at the stars
I grew up on Haida Gwaii, one of the most magical (and rainiest!) places in Canada. When I’m not responding to client emails or editing my work for the millionth time, guaranteed you'll find me outside. My border collie Juno and I can often be found explaining the story of Pleiades and Orion to anyone within ear shot - or wrangling up our newest addition to the family, a chocolate lab puppy named Wyatt!
I love being in nature and I have a particular soft spot for exploring mountains and isolated forest trails. My enthusiasm for the outdoors is reflected in my work, and I strive to help share that excitement with other people through my design.
Jessica Reid has a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Vancouver Island University, and is a member of the Graphic Designers of Canada and the Registered Graphic Designers of Canada. She is planning on pursuing a Masters degree in design next year.
