About Me

Hi there! I’m Jackie, and welcome to my little corner of paradise! This website is my main hub – a source for finding everything that’s inspiring me lately, updates on what’s been keeping me busy and random musings on art, design and my creative process.

For career credentials: Feel free to browse through my resume! Otherwise, here are a few additional tidbits about me:

(See photo above - clockwise order)

1. A daily warm beverage (be it tea, coffee, or chai) is as essential to my creativity as my Wacom tablet and Adobe software (so much so, it even inspired my logo).

2. I am a “book-a-holic” and shameless YA novel enthusiast! If I’m not designing, I’m reading, and if that peaks your interest, check out my Instagram: @jyamadadesigns to see my #jyamadareads posts.

3. The first Disney film I ever saw was The Little Mermaid and it blew my three year-old mind! It not only confirmed my preschool resolve to be an artist, but also added renewed flair to my character drawings. I’ve been a designer ever since, and I’ve never looked back.

4. My grandpa was my best friend, confidant, and a wonderful encourager of my art. I always keep this picture in my workspace to remind me he’s still got my back.

5. While I work in a primarily digital format for my clients, I am still drawn to traditional art mediums. Colored pencils and acrylics are my favorites.

6. In the wizarding world, I am a self-proclaimed Ravenclaw, valuing intelligence, learning and creativity!

7. My passion for the creative arts extends not only to digital and traditional art mediums, but to textiles and fibers too. I’m an avid crafter and love to crochet, sew and design patterns for fun characters like Choco (pictured here).

“I love the logo Jackie designed for me. She was able to capture the exact essence of what I wanted to represent my podcast. Her designs are so fun and intricate that they just project such a fun energy. Jackie’s also so professional and I appreciated her communication and keeping me updated through the whole process. I look forward to working with her again.”

“I worked with Jackie to create a logo for my small business. I wasn’t really sure what I wanted in the beginning so Jackie sent me some ideas and suggestions to get me started. Once I figured out a bit more of what I wanted she started to create some ideas. I was very grateful because she was patient and really listened to what I wanted. I am very happy with the logo that she created in the end. It really symbolizes who I am and what my company stands for. I highly recommend Jackie for all of your design needs.”
