I’m Jess Parvin and I specialize in design, marketing, web and photography work for small businesses, entrepreneurs, artists & musicians. If you are looking for branding, increased web presence, help with keeping in touch with fans/ clients, etc. I’d love to hear from you! I am also an artist, music promoter and world traveler, based in Madison, Wisconsin but originally from Georgia.
I studied fine arts & art history at the College of Charleston in lovely Charleston, SC. After college I moved to Washington, DC and interned for a year at one of the Smithsonian museums. I loved being surrounded by world-class art but realized that the slow-pace of museum life was not for me! So soon after moving to Wisconsin I went back to school for graphic design and web design. After 3 years working full-time as a designer, photographer and web maintenance guru at a high-end clothing retailer, I decided to strike out on my own as a freelancer.
I love helping entrepreneurs and artists achieve the vision that they have for their business! I also love the flexibility that being a freelancer has given me . My partner, Josh, is a touring musician and because of him I have been very active in the folk music world: touring across the US & Europe, booking gigs, promoting shows (currently as “The Wisconsin Room presents”), working for other independent artists on their websites, branding, poster & album art designs, etc. I truly believe that variety is the spice of life!
If you have a vision of where you’d like your business/ career to be and aren’t sure how to get there – I would love to hear from you! Even if we don’t end up working together, I’m happy to chat about your goals and answer any questions you might have.
