I’m Jess Doecke, a qualified Graphic Designer and creative behind Boss & Dearie. Having been a high school Music and Drama teacher for 7 years I felt a growing unrest within me. I loved the opportunity to positively impact the lives of young people, and help them discover and grow their creativity- but I had a burning desire to pursue a career where MY creativity would flourish and encourage people. So, what started with an interest in design- doing posters for my husbands band, I then studied Graphic Design full-time.
As if a complete career change wasn’t enough, a month after graduating I gave birth to my husband and I’s greatest creative work yet- our son Orlando (now 2). Like many new Mum’s, I proceeded to have an identity crisis and questioned whether I had chosen a career worthy of taking any time away from this precious lil’ human being entrusted to our care. In time, I saw the positives of me having a creative outlet separate to my care of Ollie and spent the 2years enjoying park play dates and babychinos alongside being a sponge to entrepreneurial and marketing podcasts, doing logo jobs for friends and developing my design style.
2017 marks the launch of Boss and Dearie logo and branding work and a dedication of my time and energy into empowering small business with the knowledge (always the teacher) and tools to see their biz flourish. I soooooooo just wanna help you kick goals, and in this visually saturated world, quality logos/ branding/ visual identity is one of the easiest ways to look hot and stand out!
Seriously, just email me to chat about how we can work together to take your brand to the next level.
