Jesse GigandetWelcome to my website – and I truly thank you for taking the time to learn more about me.

If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to explore my various portfolios – I’ve always been more comfortable showing what I do and letting folks form their own opinions.

As you’ve probably also noticed, I am fascinated with the wonders of nature. I love the outdoors, and photographing and painting what I see is one of my great outlets in life.

In my professional career, I’ve transferred that same passion into the career I’ve chosen. I love the creative process, and finding fresh ways to convey a message or brand. It’s that passion that also keeps me inspired to constantly reinvent myself, and learn new technologies and trends.

Over the years I’ve developed an expertise in all aspects of corporate graphic communications. I’ve won multiple awards for my creative illustration, animation and design. My experience includes web design, brochures, direct mail and large format displays, video, UX Design, HMI Design, and all forms of illustration.


As an illustrator, Ive created artwork for everything from children’s books to detailed technical illustrations. I also have experience in cartooning (including animation), and several accolades for my wildlife paintings and illustrations.

Website Design

My experience in web design and development encompasses a broad client base – everything from small business to large corporate websites including Fortune 500 Corporations such as GE and Celanese.

Corporate branding and development of guidelines are incorporated into all of the websites – including logo standards, colors, fonts and photography usage. I also incorporate the latest css and html5 standards, (SEO) and mobile-friendly technology into every website.

Marketing Communications

I’ve developed branding campaigns for several divisions of General Electric, SABIC Industries, Raytheon, Celanese Plastics, Owens Corning, Tyco, Price Chopper Supermarkets… and many others.

I also have marketing experience for several colleges and universities including: Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Siena College, Union College and Schenectady County Community College.

Versatility is my greatest asset – I can not only lead a creative team, but also possess the skills to implement all aspects of the process. Not only a team leader, but a team player – having worked with some of the most successful creative minds in the business has helped me to learn, adapt and grow with the latests trends and technology!
