The art of organization, planning, and strategising is best learned from Jessica Comingore. Growing up in the lively city of Los Angeles, Jessica is the founder and creative director of a branding studio named Marbury. With a strong passion for communicating various aspects of art through mediums like logo design, art direction, packaging designs, and everything in between, Jessica has built a visual identity around brand building and strengthening.
She expresses her love for bridging the gap between design and strategy, using the two together to successfully create a vision that comes alive in the form of booming brands. Jessica’s creativity is divinely aligned with a rationale that helps blend design and business into a seamless conception, a perfect mix of using the left and right sides of the brain.
Currently, she lives in Portland with her husband. Residing just a few blocks away from the beautiful Willamette River, nature is one of Jessica’s inspirations. Her admiration of a body of water goes hand-in-hand with the bliss of watching seasons change. She enjoys a good meal accompanied by encouraging conversations with people of different cultures and backgrounds, learning more about the diversity that surrounds us every day. Her interest in nature and people have one thing in common - a passion for observation. Jessica appreciates watching leaves turn yellow during autumn, as much as she enjoys learning about people and taking back snippets of unique information through observation and understanding.
