Hello. My name is Jonelle. I’m a graphic designer, lettering artist, and marketing consultant based out of Kansas City. It's so nice to meet you.
I’ve been in love with visual design, art, and making things as long as I can remember. Ask my mom, she wasn’t too excited to find me carving little works of art into her wooden furniture as a child. (Whoops! Sorry mom.) Thankfully, my family has always been supportive of my love for all things creative.
I began my creative career as a freelance photographer in 2001, then moved into marketing and graphic design in 2006. Over the past 10 years I’ve had the opportunity to work with some of Kansas City’s best including Hallmark, ReeceNichols, Rodrock Homes, Engaged Companies, and several small businesses and startups.
I'm a multi-faceted creative with the ability to see the big picture and align individual strategies to help meet a company's long-term goals. Be it digital strategies, content development, copywriting, branding, proposals and RFPs, advertising, installations, culture initiatives, event planning, or design; my approach is simple - be consistent, be meaningful, connect to your audience, and mind the details.
I work to build a strong foundation of branding and marketing practices, and nurture from there. Side effects include exponential growth from increased web traffic, inbound leads, brand recognition, consumer trust, and industry credibility.
Throughout my career I’ve always had a side project (or series of side projects, let’s be real…) that provided opportunities for me to experiment and grow my creative passions including lettering, surface pattern design, photography, and illustration. I bring this diverse mix of creative experience to all my work, providing services with a unique perspective and a holistic approach.
As a hand lettering artist and designer, I’m drawn to creating custom brands for small and growing companies, as well as unique artwork for product, advertising, editorials, and corporate installations. With an extensive background in strategic marketing, I’m fascinated with how best to tell a company’s story in unique and memorable ways.
You can find my work online, in local Kansas City businesses, and right here in my own shop (where you can get your hands on custom fine art prints, apparel, and more). I am currently available for hire and would love to talk with you about your creative projects. You can drop me a line here.
