Art Director BITCHES!!
As Art Director for Themis Media, Jessica tackles the challenging task of leading the team to turn nascent ideas into working brands, media kits, and site designs. A Fine Arts graduate of Michigan State University, she brings her meticulous nature to every project, to both the delight and exasperation of her coworkers. After joining the Themis team back in November 2005, Jessica was a complete newcomer to the gaming world. Since that time, she has picked up the lingo (and humor), but still resists the habit; instead indulging in a wide array of acceptably geeky comics, movies and books.
