about

Photo of Jessica Port

Born and raised in Southern California, I've recently returned after half a decade spent in Rhode Island. I completed my BFA in graphic design at Rhode Island School of Design.

When I'm not designing, I enjoy getting outdoors, jogging, listening to music & public radio, watching films, cooking good food, reading, and driving my '63 Falcon.
