Hey, I'm Jadyne |Ja-Don| but you can call me Jay. I’m a witty, charismatic, artist from south Louisiana. (French ancestors, hence the name Jadyne.)
I love creating designs that are both functional and aesthetically alluring. There's an important relationships between typographic and visual elements. I believe that cohesion between the two creates an immediate interest – a sort of love at first sight – that is imperative to successful design.
Is it more important to look good in person, or on paper?
While I thrive in a room of clients anticipating a flawless presentation, I’d say my inked accomplishments are just as astounding. Download my resumé and see for yourself.
Now that the formalities out of the way, let me tell you about my passion for art. I love graphic design because it allows me change that font that pops into a typeface that boldly thrusts your image past the competition. Graphic design can take away the clip art in your Microsoft PowerPoint, and hand you brilliant icons and illustrations that have flourished past the fluff of 1999. As a Graphic Artist, my daily fix comes from crafting headlines and taglines that roll off the tongue and speak to the soul.

Okay, you get one warning here. My brain is like a factory of awesome sauce, and here is where the assembly line dumps the lagniappe goodies. I advise the use of both a HazMat suit and selfie stick. No telling what's going to happen here.
Most importantly, share anything you find interesting or comment with your opinion. I'm a not-so-shallow human being. Tell me how cool I am, so that I can humbly disagree.
If you need help piecing together a rough sketch in your head, or you want to completely re-brand your growing business, we have much to talk about.
How much do I charge? The size and nature of the project
will determine the rate of charge. I recommend visiting the
Client Resource Page before hand, so that you have a good understanding of how our relationship can develop.
If you're not a big fan of emailing, contact me on one of my social media outlets.
I've worked with a plethora of organizations including: corporate offices, collegiate organizations and departments, small businesses, non-profits, music festivals, and bands.
So, you’ve never hired a Graphic Artist before?
It’s okay. I’ll guide you through this. While I’m equipped with quite the creative arsenal, that doesn’t mean I’m undoubtedly the guy for your particular job. That’s not humility or self-doubt, it’s just the truth. My areas of expertise lie primarily in designing:
Ads and other Print Collateral
Front-End Web Design
Copywriting and Typesetting
I believe it’s true that you never stop learning, and I strive to add App Design, UX, and Web Development to my repertoire. So, if any those ring a bell (no pun intended) as your existing need, read on. If not, still continue. Maybe you’re unsure of exactly what it is you’re missing, and that’s okay. We can figure it out.
I’m sure you know the importance of leaving a lasting impression on everyone you serve. My goal is to create and iconic and unique visual presence that assures your customers won’t forget the business that provided such a great product or service.
I’ve studied typography, color, shape/form, and a cornucopia of other key elements that influence consumers in one way or another. While it’s true that no one knows your business like you do, seeking assistance from someone like myself can be the difference between keeping your regular customers appeased, and gaining new clientele who are excited to know your business exists.
Let’s talk a bit about my work habits.
I prefer to meet in person both at the very beginning and end of our journey, if not more often. This contact breeds better understanding of the project for both parties. While technology has come a long way, no amount of emojis or exclamation marks can tell me how you truly feel about what is being developed. Face to face conversation is much more productive. I typically provide a weekly update on the progression of a project spanning longer than three weeks, and four-day updates on jobs requiring faster turn-around time.
Below are all of the documents we'll need to start our journey. Download and complete them,
or we can fill them out together at our initial meeting. If any questions arrise, feel free to contact me.
Some projects end up unresolved and are casted aside into a vault of visual could have beens. But I want to give to them their moment and their space, here.
