Jess Macdonald is a Creative Director living and working in London.
With experience in editorial design, print, packaging, branding, and art direction, she has worked across a broad set of commercial industries – from luxury fashion to motorsports to health and wellness.

Starting her career at Burberry, Jess has since done freelance stints at Liberty’s and Stella McCartney before moving onto yet another Royal Warrant holder, Mount Street Printers. Here is where she honed in on her passion for print, leading on clients like luxury events company Lanza & Baucina, Evgeny Lebedev’s Private Office, Coast and even the Royal Family. Her next steps saw her moving into the licensing space for a few years, becoming design lead on CAA’s largest clients like Formula One, Playboy, Crayola and Bobcat. 

Not limiting herself to the commercial grind, she was invited to be a guest speaker at the university she graduated from, Central Saint Martin’s. She was also asked to run a mentorship programme inspiring IB students at her old school in Jakarta, Indonesia where she grew up.

She now works at CBD startup, Tenacious Labs, on a broad roster of brands – from inception to implementation and beyond. She also regularly supports on the investment arm and Private Office that owns Tenacious Labs, Delarki.
