Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Salis Howe.
Hi Jessica, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
The designer I am today has blossomed through many mediums and exposure to amazing opportunities. Art has always been my way of expressing and creating beauty, but also how I decompress. People ask why I’m always so happy and motivated. Well, I attribute that to doing what I love, daily! My passion is Brandography. I have used my training in graphic design, fine art, interior design and photography to articulate brands for new and existing companies. I’ve been fortunate to stay with my clients for over 15 years now. As they grow, I continue to grow with them as member of their team. There’s no one shot job in this industry because the key is consistency. You can only do the best job for a business once you get “inside” the business. That type of knowledge and dedication comes from the accrual of time. My job is knowing how to SPEAK to their customers and how to make things more efficient. I like to give business owners the opportunity to not only be a boss but a chance to be an entrepreneur. If what you’re doing is good, then you can EXPAND, reach more people and let your business run like an engine!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
To say growth is a smooth road would be a lie. The very essence of growth is to expand beyond your current shell because you ARE OUTGROWING IT. When we GROW, we shed our “comfort zone” and progress into bigger and better things. That process takes courage and is sometimes done out of necessity. Each time we learn new skills, we allow ourselves to grow. We do things better and smarter. With anything new there’s trial and error, expense and patience. I don’t look at those items as obstacles, rather as positive challenges which will ultimately allow me to be better and do better for myself and clients. Embrace change so you can grow. But don’t fix what’s not broken. Learning how to decipher that fine line is the art itself.
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Salis Brandography® is a Maryland studio offering one-on-one graphic and interior design, print services and professional photography for your brand, event and family too! Specializing in the body of design work needed to open and maintain small businesses.
If you are starting your own business and need someone to take you through the design process, this is where you would start. Together we will take your business plan and turn it into a brand that speaks for you.
Your logo, printed materials and web presence will be fully customized and cohesive. We will organize and plan all of the details so you know exactly what you are having designed and what elements can be taken off your plate. The entire proofing process is loads of fun. It’s like birthing a brainchild, literally! I work with you along the entire way. You will receive complete visual articulation.
It’s your brand, your look. So let’s design it that way!
On the flip side, if you have been in business for years but really want an updated look, then a rebrand may be the answer. I can help you to freshen up your logo and overall clarity for your audience. The idea for this new look is to seamlessly jive with your audience yet maintain your hard-earned brand awareness— just with a new evergreen style!
Photography you ask? Why yes, that’s part of it too!!
Throughout the years of being a visual storyteller, photography has been my right-hand friend. From brand photography to family milestones, my galleries are a collection of images that highlight the individuality of you, your family or your portfolio. I lean towards a more exaggerated style of photography. I like my images to be descriptive. My approach to both graphic design and brand photography are described as: engaging, flattering, stimulating and composed.
Let’s tell your story!
Do you have any advice for those just starting out?
Allow yourself to accept constructive criticism. Don’t be a fragile artist who can’t take critique. That very knowledge that people have the courage to share with you is the key to you understanding how people see you and your work. Hang out with people who are older and more experienced than you. Their knowledge is like no textbook or online tutorial. It’s the real gold!
