MEET THE TEAM

 

It's a true honor to collaborate with our clients, designing logos, package design, and collateral that we're proud to say reflects each brand and our own creative style. As Jess Glebe Design grows, it's important to us that we maintain a high standard of communication with our clients and a portfolio of work that's thoughtfully crafted and consistent.

Thus, we'd like to welcome a new member to the team: Brittany Gretta. She's pretty awesome and talented to boot, and we're confident she's the designer we need to keep Jess Glebe Design delivering the goods you've come to know and love.

Jess Glebe, Owner + Designer

Jess Glebe grew up in a family of creative artists and craftspeople. Inspired by them and naturally inclined to create, Jess followed in their footsteps, drawing and painting her way through adolescence. During her junior year of high school, a beloved teacher recommended she pursue graphic design as a career. At the time, Jess had no idea what graphic design even was, but with a little research, she agreed that it was the perfect match for her creativity and fastidious nature. 

Jess graduated Summa Cum Laude from Moore College of Art + Design in 2006, and she's been building and cultivating brands for countless clients ever since.

While Jess takes her craft very seriously, she also thoroughly enjoys every minute of her workday. In her downtime she can be found honing her culinary and mixology skills, exploring new breweries with friends, frolicking with her chihuahua, or curled up to a good flick with her wife and business partner, Caitlin.


Caitlin Riley, Owner + Copywriter

Caitlin Riley has been writing since middle school, after being introduced to the poetry of Longfellow, Emerson, Thoreau, and Dickinson. At Penn State University, she studied Film and Creative Writing, where she met the ever sexy Chicago Manual of Style. She received her M.Ed. in English Education from Temple University and was awarded the Secondary Education Teacher Award and the Assessment Award of Distinction. After teaching high school English for several years, Jess encouraged her to write full-time, and here we are loving every second of it. Wanna play Bananagrams®? 

When not in the office, Caitlin's on the stage or screen, appearing in plays, indie films, and commercials. She's also an avid runner, reader, and ruminator. She and Jess live outside of Philly with their chihuahua, Phil, and cat, Banksy.

Brittany Gretta, Freelance Graphic Designer

Brittany Gretta graduated from Philadelphia University in the Top 5 Portfolios. TOP 5! That's pretty awesome. A designer, illustrator, and letterer, Brittany brings a sophisticated and refined style to Jess Glebe Design. She and Jess met while Brit was interning at Bailey Brand Consulting, where Jess worked at the time, but it was true kismet when their paths crossed AGAIN while working at E&J Gallo Winery in California. When not designing like a boss, Brit enjoys traveling, hiking, live music, and watching "so-bad-they're-good" reality shows on TLC (we're not judging). 

Brittany lives in Philadelphia with her husband Dan, their dogs Bowie + Zappa, and one very needy Venus fly trap. 


We believe branding agencies, regardless of their size, should be equally as passionate about their projects as their clients are; so we personally commit ourselves to each project we undertake as if it were our own. Our clients have been pretty darn pleased with us to-date.

WHAT SMALL BATCH KITCHEN IS SAYING:

“It seemed like a daunting project when we started, but Jess was patient and had fantastic ideas and insight on the logo and labels. I'm so happy with our new look, the new custom labels look amazing on our jars, and I look forward to working with Jess and Caitlin again as we develop new flavors and product lines..."

— Sheila Rhodes, Small Batch Kitchen
