Oh, Hello.

Pleased to meet you!

Pleased to meet you!

Welcome to my digital portfolio. Out of Kansas City, I’m a jane-of-all-trades Graphic, Web and User Experience Designer & WordPress developer with a penchant for spotting typos. I work at a lovely place by the name of MBB & enjoy the company of short-legged dogs.

Jessica J. Johnston

Services & Stuff I Do.

Website Design

Over 20 years experience designing for the web: it's kind of like breathing for me.

WordPress Development

I build awesome WordPress websites, not boring cookie-cutter sites.

User Experience Design

Getting down to the root & the psychology behind the user's experience.

Graphic Design

Advertising, marketing, posters, fliers – graphic design is in my blood.

Website Maintenance

If you have a business, your website is a vital element. Many potential customers first impressions are your website. But running a business is a lot of work. Adding website maintenance to your list of tasks can be a burden. I can help with that. Contact me to discuss pricing & details for my help maintaining your company website.

CSS Help

You know the styling you want, but just can’t quite get it. If you’re building your own website, or have an existing site that just needs a few tweaks you can’t figure out- no worries. I can help with that.

WordPress Websites

I’ve built websites on WordPress for over fifteen years. The sites I build are unique and customized. The WordPress websites I build aren’t the cookie-cutter, boring websites you might be thinking of. I don’t make those sites. I make cool, awesome, fully functional WordPress websites. Plain & simple.

Page Speed Optimization

WordPress has occasionally gotten a bad rap over the years. Some of that is because of long page loading times. Sometimes themes or too many plugins can bloat your site. This can cause your website to load slowly. But have no fear! Because there are tricks that can be implemented to change that dramatically.

Working with Jessica was a dream. Work was completed promptly, clarifications were swift and she ensured the end result was achieved successfully. No job was too small for her complete attention and she performed as a true partner.

Erin Sass, Integrated Marketing Manager at Lockton Affinity

 
 

I have had the pleasure of working with Jessica on numerous WordPress projects. Simply put – she is awesome at her job! Jess provides the necessary attention to detail that is required of developers – she thinks everything through, offers suggestions and is willing to go above and beyond to do the research to find just the right solution. […] I would highly recommend Jessica Johnston – her creative and technical abilities have no boundaries.

Jessica’s got a sharp, edgy eye for design that has kept our brands artistically competitive in KC. And she has a very rare quality for people of her talent level…she’s a team player.

Jessica is highly knowledgeable in her field of business and is extremely good at what she does. She is capable of quickly turning around projects, websites, you name it, while at the same time creating beautiful end results that her clients absolutely love. […]

Jess is amazing. Her work speaks for itself. She’s a true jack-of-all-trades, moving from graphic design to UX to development seamlessly. She’s also great to work with: focused, highly intelligent, and fun![…]

Basically, I like making the world a little bit prettier & easier to understand.
