Jessica Endaya Keefer is a graphic designer based out of Kansas City, Missouri. Often described as enthusiastic, her love of design is driven by its universal way of connecting across different cultures and disciplines. Spending a few years in the Philippines and then moving to the states, it was at an early age that Jessica learned the importance of good communication. With the help of her Visual Communications degree from Truman State University, she concluded that concise, relevant design is the key to good communication. She puts this into daily practice as a Senior Designer at VML. Beyond her day job, she divvies up spare time working on various freelance projects and is one of AIGA-KC’s Internal Programming Directors.
When she’s not designing, she enjoys spending time with her family, partaking in various social media and watching (re-watching) Mad Men. In addition to her belief that Tom Hanks is the true national treasure, she enjoys a good pun and sending snail mail. In 2015, Jess was part of the #1 Trivia Team in the KC Geeks Who Drink circuit. Since then, her 2-person trivia team, Herman's Hermits, has retired – but will sporadically come out of hiding to engage in fun brain games.
