Why Hello there!

Hi, I’m Jess Kerss an Australian freelance graphic designer, illustrator, motion designer and animator based in Melbourne. 

I'm a graduate turned teacher at Monash University where I was awarded first class honours majoring in animation and motion graphics within design research. 
I focused my final year of studies creating a short animated interview in the form of documentary, focusing on helping young people of parental incarceration within Australia. 

I’m passionate about all aspects of design however it has taken me over a decade to realise my heart belongs to animation and motion graphics.
