Jessie Xu

Art Director

If you’re ever looking for our Art Director, Jessie, just follow the sound of giggles and a karaoke microphone. But don’t let her humble and fun-loving nature fool you—she’s an immensely talented designer with the unwavering work ethic to match. That tenacious spirit and unending journey to find what she calls “the big idea” are what brought her all the way to the US from her home in Shandong, China. Her first stop in the states was Savannah, Georgia, where she earned her MFA in Advertising from the renowned Savannah College of Art and Design. Add that major brag to an extensive list of big agency experience working on snazzy clients like Sheraton, Wyndham, the US National Park System, and Chinese Education System, and you’ve got yourself an Art Director anyone would be lucky to work with. And here at &Barr, we’re just glad to be a part of her quest for “the big idea”. Rock on, Jessie.
