Hello! I’m Jessica Sinclair; a freelance creative illustrator and designer currently based in Sheffield, UK.
My creative work is rooted in sharing visual stories that spark an emotional connection, as this is what drives an audience to take action. I do this through a collaborative process which takes direct inspiration from the client and their priorities, and gets to the heart of their story.
I first connect with my clients through Zoom, where I get to know you and your business on a personal level, as well as what story you want to tell your audience. Face to face connections help us to establish a firm foundation early on and allows for ideas to come to life. Throughout the creation stages I factor in feedback sessions to ensure we are always on the same page. My process sets your story up for success by getting your audience to care about what you have to say.
My style is minimal and whimsical, and I love using colour and texture in my illustrations and designs to add depth and meaning. I enjoy creating book covers, posters, infographics, booklets, as well as creating custom commissions.
Interested in working with me?
On a personal note…
I moved to Sheffield a couple of years ago so I could easily go out into the Peak District. I love climbing hills for a good view, but nothing can beat a great forest walk! My favourite place in the Peaks is Wyming Brook, as it is truly magical up there.
I’ve also been dipping my toe into wild swimming (excuse the pun), and am hoping to build up my confidence to swim in the winter. I enjoy doing exercise that gets me into my body, especially bouldering, yoga and ecstatic dance.
I love reading, especially magical fantasy, space sci-fi, sci-fi and modern fiction. I also read a lot of non-fiction, and am particularly interested in how trauma affects the body and the brain.
I’m an avid writer, especially poetry and short stories. I’ve recently picked up the clarinet and am really enjoying the process of playing for fun. I also love doing jigsaw puzzles, embroidery and knitting.
I’m both a cat and a dog person, and will try and pet any animal that looks friendly! I’m always trying to pet the stray cats on my street.
