Jessica "Jeli" Li (she/her/hers) is a Los Angeles-based Chinese-American digital marketing creative who seeks opportunities to combine her passions for graphic design, social media, and brand development to leverage the voices of others. Her background in fine arts coupled with her recent education from the Media Arts + Practice undergraduate program at the University of California, School of Cinematic Arts allows her work to sit at the cusp of traditional design practice and cutting edge technology. Jeli enjoys creating high-impact brand identities that are fun and playful, yet empower creative expression and worldly progression.

Jeli was born and raised in Westchester, New York where she developed her love for fine arts. During her studio art endeavors in high school, her watercolor still life "Zero Gravity" received a Silver Key in the 2014 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards and was also selected to be featured at the 2016 iCreate exhibit at the esteemed Bruce Museum in Greenwich, CT. Her graphite self-portrait "Belly Fat" admitted her into the prestigious School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California where she is currently working to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Arts + Practice.

Now residing in Los Angeles, California, Jeli is expanding her traditional craft into today's digital sphere. As she tackles new coursework in cutting-edge mediums such as 3D modeling and motion graphics, while obtaining a marketing-focused minor in Communication Design, she is discovering more and more platforms where she can empower others through meaningful visual storytelling.

If you can't find Jeli at home or in the classroom, she is either at choir rehearsal, making lesson plans at the USC Asian Pacific American Student Services, or playing ultimate frisbee with her teammates in the wee hours of the night. :)
