Jessica Watson, the woman behind the Fells Point-based graphic design and marketing company JWatson Creative, has been named one of 10 people to watch under 30 by b, the Baltimore Sun‘s free weekly newspaper.
Watson, 29, founded JWatson Creative in 2010 with no full-time employees and $5,000 of her own money. Since then, reports b, she has made money:
“The year she started JWatson Creative, her annual revenue was about $45,000, more than she was making a year at her then full-time job. In 2011, it was $70,000 and it was $77,000 last year. This year, she’s dying to continue to do what she’s loved these past few years — taking a company’s look or website and do a complete rebrand, a rewash.”
JWatson Creative was responsible for the design of KnotFriends‘ website, the necktie-swapping startup Technically Baltimore reported on last July.-30-
