About Me

Silly illustration of Jessica Sawicz

Hello!

My name is Jessica Sawicz, feel free to call me Jess.

I am a web developer and graphic designer who is enthusiastic, a little bit quirky and naturally passionate about all of the work that I do. I am in particular passionate about accessibility as I feel it is important that we make our content easily accessible to everyone.

I’m a forward thinker and love to tackle a good challenge. The more intimidating the endeavor, the more I’m determined to accomplish it. Don’t believe me? Despite being petrified of heights I’ve ridden on many of the tallest roller coasters in the world as well as jumped out of a perfectly good airplane.

When I’m not coding or designing you can find me volunteering at my local community theatre or other non-profit organizations.

I’ve used Jessica a few times for graphic work. She always delivers a great product on time and have never been disappointed. I’d recommend her without hesitation.

Lee Bodson – Bodson Photography

I was so happy and impressed with our wedding invitations. We couldn’t find a template that we liked so we decided to get them designed. Jess did an absolutely amazing job and better than we ever pictured them to look. We loved that she included simple designs of our dogs who were going to be in the wedding. So creative! We would definitely hire Jess again!
