About Jessica M.

Hello, my name is Jessica Miller, founder and creative director at Corvus. I’ve put together a bit about myself and my experience that I hope gives a bit of insight as to what makes our services stand out in a sea of designers.

Profile

I’m an award-winning, multi-disciplined visual designer with expertise in all facets of UX / web design and graphic design for print, B2B, corporate identity, and brand design.

Over the past several years my niche clientele has evolved into primarily beauty and skincare, dermatology (and other medical fields), fashion, and retail entities, for which I produce all types of web, graphic, print, and brand design items. Some of my independent and Corvus clients have included Asos, Lacoste, Paganne Couture, SkinCeuticals, and Milk Makeup.

I’ve previously worked in big tech for corporations such as Philips Electronics, Sony, HP, and Sun Micro, and founded Corvus Design Studio, where I serve as Creative Director and Sr. UX Designer. Our teams employ Design Thinking methods for rapid iteration in producing effective online experiences, collateral, and brand designs. Corvus is a fast-paced agency that allows me to flex my hands-on skills in UX and graphic design working on projects of various scale and purpose. My specialties include all facets of web production, encompassing art direction, content architecture, wireframes, prototyping, high fidelity design, and technical spec adherence, as well as graphic design for marketing and b2B collateral, all manner of printed materials, corporate identity, and branding.

One of my biggest strengths is the ability to adapt to a wide range of projects and clients. I pride myself in being able to step into the shoes of our clients to come up with ideas and designs to best suit each individual challenge. The variety and unique challenges that come with diverse clients are the parts of my profession that I love the most.

In addition to UX / web and graphic design expertise I’m also a skilled front-end developer with proficiency in HTML, CSS, jQuery/JavaScript, as I started my career as a software-turned-web programmer. I’m an experienced WordPress designer and co-developed the WordPress and Woocommerce themes that make up our in-house proprietary WP frameworks.

I have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from San Jose State University, and certification from MIT in Human-Computer Interaction for User Experience. I’ve taught User Experience Design and WordPress Best Practices at university level.
