My name is Jessie Keogh, and I’m a graphic designer and illustrator from Essex, UK.
Although I’ve been drawing since I was old enough to hold a pencil, I started my creative career at the age of 18 as an apprentice designer for a small, start-up digital agency. In the years that have passed since then, I’ve participated in a plethora of digital and print-based projects, injecting my unique sense of style into promotional materials, social media marketing, and websites alike.
I am now the current lead designer of PlantBased Magazine, a publication dedicated to vegan recipes, interviews with popular plant-based chefs and nutritional advice from the industry’s leading experts.
In early 2019, I was tasked with illustrating the front covers of a new title: Be Kind Magazine. Be Kind is a magazine which aims to make the world a better place, covering issues such as food waste, recycling, and community work. Each cover that I illustrate needs to encompass that particular issue’s main theme, whether it be plastic, fashion, or what ‘home’ really means, whilst maintaining a consistent and distinctive brand identity.
When I’m not working, I can often be found at home with my boyfriend, doodling on my iPad or eating delicious vegan food.
