I’m Jessica Harllee (she/her) and I’m a Principal Product Designer at Primary, a gender-non-prescriptive, inclusive kids clothing brand, where I design the website and the merchandising tools that power it. Previously, I spent six years at Etsy, where I worked on tools for Etsy sellers, the buyer experience, and design systems. I was on the founding design team at Kickstarter, and worked at Modea, an ad agency. I was born and raised in northern Virginia, studied Visual Communications Design at Virginia Tech, and have lived in Brooklyn for nearly 10 years.
I own too much jewelry, listen to a constant stream of music, and love a good craft project. I’m obsessed with process and a well-organized Google doc, and believe that great design is nothing without great copy. I’m probably shorter than you. Currently, my favorite emoji is the :guy-fieri-chefs-kiss:.
I’ve been keeping a personal site since 2000, when I first learned HTML and CSS and discovered design. Please enjoy a sampling of the old layouts here.
