Meet the Designer


Hey there! I’m Jessica (or Jess), the owner and designer behind That First Spark Creative Studio, based in the heart of Canada.

With a background in fine arts and graphic design, I’m passionate about combining the best of both digital and traditional techniques to create projects that are really thoughtful, unique and memorable.

In my spare time, I can be found snuggling up with my cat and dog, scouting out the next travel destination, window shopping for mid-century modern furniture, or watching re-runs of The Office.



Behind the Name

That First Spark

When it came to deciding on a business name, I spent a LONG TIME trying to figure out how to convey a really specific feeling.

“That First Spark” is meant to describe something I'm constantly striving for and chasing after: the magical and precise moment of being suddenly struck by inspiration.
