Hello, I'm Jess and I like to make stuff! "Stuff" includes but is not limited to logo design, business cards, package design, posters, small websites, and Tumblr blog themes. Ekqo rhymes with echo, by the way!
I am currently attending the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. I am working on a Bachelors of Arts degree in Digital Arts with a concentration of both graphic design and web design. I am also working towards a Certificate in Web Publishing.
