About J.Avolio.

J.Avolio is a creative studio in #HamOnt
We'll help you define what sets you apart


We loving working alongside passion-led business owners who are in pursuit of their individual purpose. Anyone operating in a creative, wellness or lifestyle industry is exactly our forte.

We’ll draw inspiration from a decade in marketing & design and a background in fine art and art history, and use this knowledge to develop curated designs. We’ll always take a strategy-based approach to your brand as well—assuring your visuals have substance and feel truly authentic to your ethos and audience.

When I’m in design-mode you can probably find me at home drinking a cup of peppermint tea with honey and telling my favourite co-worker (my cat, Pekoe) to stop yelling when I’m in meetings. Oh, and I’ll be listening to my eclectic music collection on shuffle too.

In my free time , I’ll either be going for a walk at the piers to enjoy nature or you’ll probably spot me at any of the cafes downtown (say “hi” if you ever see me!). It the evenings I’ll likely be doing an ooey-gooey yoga class, attending a community event or hitting up a drag show.

    CREATIVE DIRECTOR

"Every time I use the logo on anything it makes me so happy—like, a literal smile comes on my face when I'm sticking stickers on boxes or stamping packaging. Just knowing we did so much work behind the scenes to get that 'brand story' nailed down gave me that confidence I needed to push forward. I didn't have that with my original brand, and what a difference it makes. I just feel so darn proud of what we created and I could not have gotten there on my own!"

“Jess is both an expert designer and a great collaborator. They really listened to my ideas, translating my abstract vision into fully realized branding assets that I’m proud to show off! From a colour palette that seamlessly integrated existing hues on my website to thoughtful and detailed illustrations, I couldn’t be happier with their work.”

"Working with Jess was like working with a dear friend. I felt they deeply understood my vision from every angle and I immediately knew I could trust them to bring our ideas to life thanks to thoughtful questions & exercises that helped me gain clarity around what I wanted. Jess was supportive throughout the entire process and their talent in this field speaks for itself. I'm so glad that I decided to take the leap and follow my intuition to work with them, as my branding and other design elements are spot-on. I look forward to working with them more in the years to come!"

It’s not only because your final work always ends up looking jaw dropping. What I respect more than anything else is your approach. Your inside-out approach of what the brand really means to the founder and the people it seeks to impact! Thank you for creating this for me and the people I seek to impact!”

“Thank you for your guidance in helping me launch this all! I wouldn't have been able to do it without you. The inspiration is constantly flowing. I love handing out my business cards just because of how stunning they are. The brandmark and everything you designed up for the brand is simply perfect and work so well to convey the messages and values. Seriously Jess, you do the most incredible work!”
