Jess Telmanik is a multidisciplinary designer who believes in the healing power of creativity. A mental health warrior and constantly evolving human being, she seeks to inspire others that it’s never too late to find a voice and catch a vision. Her innovative outlook and passion for digital and traditional illustration shines through her vibrant artwork that serves as a reminder that it’s okay to be human.

A "creative unicorn,” Jess has extensive experience in print and digital graphic design. Her passions include Illustration, 3D and—because she believes EVERYONE is creative—teaching traditional and digital art classes for children and adults.

The hardest thing Jess has ever done was learning how to code through an intensive iOS app development boot camp in 2017 and then working on the Reading Attention Tutor iPad App as the UI/UX Designer and Front-End Developer in 2018. These experiences enabled her to develop a deep understanding of how technology works, which has greatly benefitted all realms of her creative life.

Jess has worked as a freelance designer, serving clients including award-winning restaurants like Osteria Tulia in Naples, Florida; charities such as the Sunshine Kids Foundation; Bea Wray, author of the best-selling book "What an MBA Taught Me … But My Kids Made Me Learn"; prestigious real estate agents; and remodeling companies. She has also worked as an in-house graphic designer for companies including John R. Wood Properties and Whole Foods, served as a guest Illustrator on Adobe Live and was a 2020 Adobe Creative Residency Community Fund recipient.
Currently, Jess is writing for CreativePro, serving as an Ambassador for the Adobe Illustrator Prerelease Community, volunteering as an Adobe Community Expert and working with a select group of freelance clients.

In her free time, Jess loves being a part of Adobe Prerelease communities, folding modular origami, teaching herself to play the ukulele, reading everything, and laughing as often as possible.
