Hi, I'm Jessica Valis. 👋
Hi, I'm Jessica Valis.
I’m a boy mom & cop wife. I frequently convince myself I’m the mid-century modern version of Joanna Gains and try my hand at home repairs… and I never put the tools away, because… you know, I could need them again. Otherwise I’m in the garden and tending my veggies.
Before Harford Designs, I worked in branding and publishing for Wells Fargo. After nearly a decade of feeling unfulfilled and helping “the man”, I’m taking my big business know-how and applying it to independent financial firms like yours!
I’ve dappled with html and website design since 1996 (hello, flame gifs & Angelfire!) and am ready to bring your brand and website from the dark ages (the 2000s!) to 2023!
