About Owl and Toad

Hi I'm Jessica. I am a based in sunny Southern California and use its diverse landscapes as inspiration for layout and color palettes. My favorite color is always changing but right now it is deep teal. I have a degree in Fine Art and a background in corporate Graphic Design. I enjoy the creative freedom of designing for Minted.

Thank you so very much for your kind comment, Jessica. I'm jumping on the opportunity, because I got a chance to talk to your husband at the Camp Minted ceremony, but never got to tell YOU, how much I love your work and style. There, now I've said it! All the best to you both in the upcoming challenges and announcements.
