about us

Make your marketing work harder for you - without working harder yourself. Dreams really can come true.

When you’ve got a hundred decisions to make, a hundred emails to answer, and what feels like a hundred cups of coffee to chug every single day, making your marketing materials look shit-hot probably isn’t something you’ve got time to handle.

 But it still needs to be handled…

Maybe you’ve never worked with an agency but know it’s time to raise your stakes, raise your game, and raise your sales.

Or maybe you’ve worked with big enormous agencies but – as great as they are – you can’t face sitting through any more two-hour meetings answering weird questions and hearing the word ‘solution’ waaaay too many times. Jargon can bore off. Zzzzz.

Or maybe your simple but relentless ambition to stand out and be noticed – by your prospects and your competitors – has brought you to this little corner of the internet.

Whatever the case, if you want to hook more eyeballs and convert more leads at the same time as making the decisions, taking the meetings, and doing the work you do best, then you’re in the right place.

Jessica Draws is the powerhouse team for businesses who want to look anything but corporate. Professional, yes, but not corporate.

Jessica Draws

Creative Director

Hi! I’m Jess Morgan, head honcho of Jessica Draws (the clue’s in the name) and award-winning designer and illustrator. Since setting up in 2012, I’ve brought hundreds of brand ideas to life through design that turns the heads of the right people. When I’m not behind my Mac, managing design projects, speaking to clients, or at a networking event, you’ll most likely find me wandering around a food festival with my family, engrossed in a book, or at the bottom of a good bottle glass of red.

My passion is transforming dull, complicated data into beautiful, functional design and my vision is to get our creative paws on the World’s information and re-design it so that everyone (even your nan) can understand what the devil is going on. We want to smash down walls, turn our backs on cold corporate culture and remind everyone that people and relationships are what really matters! (no, really!) It’s time to be shouting from the rooftops about our values, our passions and making darn sure that all the complicated issues that affect all of us are presented in engaging, digestible and jargon-free ways so that it speaks to everyone. Let’s help people connect, talk, learn from each other and do fantastic things; together!  

Dave Morgan

Motion Designer

Hey, I’m Dave Morgan, husband of the lovely lady with all the awards. Jess makes brands look the part, and I provide the technical support, animation, and web development needed to complement her design and make everything work like gangbusters. (I also make the tea.)

My career history in video forensics, IT, and being a real-life cable guy for Virgin Media gave me sufficient geek status to work behind the scenes at Jessica Draws, and client demand allowed me to officially join the business in 2017. Aside from all things tech, I’m a huge music fan, guitarist, gamer, comics and sci-fi nerd, and – most importantly – the owner of a beard.

Lauren Deakin

Creative Designer

Hi I’m Lauren! I graduated from a degree in printed textiles from Bath University in 2013 and since then I’ve been working in the industry as a creative designer and project manager working with brands such as Wilko, Lidl, Asda & Primark. I’m really pleased to be part of the team here at Jessica Draws, contributing to ideas, strategy and of course managing design projects for some fantastic clients. I bring my passion for colour and illustration into everything I do and my love for design always puts a smile on my face.
I’m originally from Shrewsbury but currently living in Llanharan with my partner Craig and my Sprocker Spaniel Jack (and his teddy). You’ll most likely find me enjoying a craft gin in the garden when I’m not lost in the latest design project or perusing the latest trends on Pinterest.

Matt Crowley

Designer

I'm Matt! After University, I launched myself into London and at the same time, I joined Jess' team of bandits (who says long distance relationships never work?) I help give brands a voice by adding a splash of creativity to everything from branding to infographics.

I come from the cider making corner of the country, Somerset. I used to be able to call myself a surfer but since there's a lack of waves in the big smoke I resort to my running shoes; promising myself that I will one day do that marathon. Other interests include bicycle head badges, gigs and coffee.

We know only too well that poorly presented data and sales messages result in lost leads, lost clients, lost customers, lost stakeholders, lost ambassadors, and (occasionally) lost hair.

Brilliantly presented messages, on the other hand, result in one very important thing. Captivation. And when you’ve achieved that, all those leads, clients, customers, stakeholders, and ambassadors are much more likely to support those messages, share them with the world, and stick around for a long, long time. (We can’t guarantee the same for your hair.)

The Jessica Draws mission is to help you do all of the above. Many of our super duper clients are based in Wales, including Constructing Excellence in Wales, Cardiff University, Cardiff Council, Digital Profile, and Liberty Marketing, and we also work for international clients, like Project Aware, who are based in Australia. *Cue a little horn toot* around 70% of new clients come back to us after the first project. How’s that for a stat?

Whatever data you’re dealing with, it doesn’t have to be dull.

A mammoth excel spreadsheet or data table can be turned into a share-worthy animation that nails all of the salient points in minutes. A bland marketing brochure or sustainability report can be turned into a bold and bright one that people want to look at, touch, and actually read. A dry-as-crackers sales or product info statement can be turned into an infographic that makes a statement (and makes sense).

We do it all. So, shall we do it together?

Commence Operation Captivation!

When we collaborate, here's what you can expect

Check your ego at the door

We love working with people and believe that the best things come when everyone works together. All people should be treated with respect, regardless of their role or position and valued for all their ideas and opinions, especially when they’re an expert at what they do. 

If we’re not learning, we’re losing

There’s no such thing as a ‘know it all’ and we’re committed to keeping on top of our game and need everyone we work with to be on top of theirs. Whether that’s new trends, skills, ideas and mindsets.  

We don’t play the blame game

If we’ve made a booboo somewhere, we will own up and work our socks off to fix it. We will be accountable for everything we say we’re going to do.  

An open door is the best kind

We haven’t got where we are today without asking for help along the way and we’re 100% committed to offering it right back to who may ask. If we can’t do something, we will get our searchlight on and find someone who can and if we can’t, then we’ll darn well find a way to learn. Just ask. 

We don’t steal time!

There’s nothing more infuriating than someone behaving as though their time is more valuable than yours. We’re committed to delivering to the timescales we’ve agreed with you and expect that in return. There’ll be no clock-watching, late replies, late calls or late deadlines. It’s just good manners.

Let's get social! Follow me...

What are you waiting for?

Hotshot branding, stationery & print design

Your business already acts the part. Now it’s time to look it. Strictly not for corporate wallflowers.

Irresistible infographics and animated videos

Reams of yawn-inducing text won’t get attention. These will. Data: designed. Messages: refined.

Eye-popping custom illustration

The crazy unique ideas in your head, actualised. Pack a punch with pixels. Boring businesses need not apply.
