Jessica (Sutton) Maniatis

FOUNDER + CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Jessica opened JSGD in 2008 with a mission to make good design accessible. She has since worked with clients the world over, developing solutions that help them stand out in their industry. There’s nothing she loves more than meeting someone pursuing their dreams – and the addicting energy and passion surrounding them.

A return to Jessica's alma matter to teach web design brought out an enthusiasm for educating, leading to workshops and talks for General Assembly, Design Salon and consulting.

Jessica brings a passion for perfectionism to her designs, making sure every pixel is accounted for. Beautiful typefaces, clean interfaces, and the puzzles that lie in coding are what get her out of bed in the morning. Follow her on instagram for fluffy puppy pics and pinterest for an unending stream of dreamy design inspiration.
