About

I’m Jessica Harllee and I’m a Principal Product Designer at Primary in Brooklyn. Previously, I was at Etsy, Kickstarter, and Modea. I’ve focused my career on building software that enables independent creators and helping people buy things that are special.

I own too much jewelry, listen to a constant stream of music, and believe that great design is nothing without great copy. I’m obsessed with process, organization, and uncovering the best way to do something. I’m probably shorter than you. Currently, my favorite emoji is the :face-with-monocle:.

One day I hope to run a 10K (did it!), sell something that I make (did it!), do an unassisted handstand, and have a library of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in my home.

Get in touch via email or Twitter. I’m also currently mentoring through Out of Office Hours.

This site was built using SiteLeaf (largely thanks to the SiteLeaf Hackday), Sublime, Terminal, Sass, Github, Photoshop, Sketch, and Typekit.

I’ve been keeping a personal site since 2000, when I first learned HTML and CSS. You can find a sampling of the old layouts here.
