I'm Jess Vandenberg, also known as Vandyink. I freelance full-time as a designer & illustrator, which basically makes me a Vector Cowboy. I'm originally from Charleston, South Carolina, but these days you can find me hustlin’ in Memphis, Tennessee. 

I primarily work on advertising and promotional materials, internal and external, which cover projects like catalogs, posters, presentations, animations, and social media sets. I thoroughly enjoy having a hand in creating brand identities, designing cohesive icon sets, and bringing vector illustrations into the "real world".

I'm Jess.

I'm Jess Vandenberg, also known as Vandyink. I’ve been freelancing full-time since the fall of 2015. I'm originally from Charleston, South Carolina, but these days you can find me in Memphis, Tennessee. 

I’m a trained illustrator and graphic designer and a self-taught animator. I try to work with folks who are committed to empowering the communities and people they serve. So much of this work becomes personal for me. I find that I do my best work when my client and I have a shared goal and passion for a project.


  • I'm a textbook Gemini

  • I was born at 11:11 A.M.

  • I'm lucky to have:
    + a cat with the best angry face
    + a dog whose legs are too short
    + another cat that plays fetch
    + a girl brighter than sunshine

If you’ve got a project you’d like to discuss, just holler!
