Jamie Zebedee


Hamilton, Bermuda
Hi, I'm Jamie, and I'm a freelance visual communicator. I hype brands, live for great design and have a particular soft spot for all things print design, art direction and branding.

I have more than 10 years experience working in various design and communications teams both agency-side and client-side. From a global oil company, to a national telecommunications company, major daily newspaper and art production teams in both Canada and Bermuda, I design and help build brands that keep people engaged.

I set myself apart from typical designers in that I come from a strong corporate communications background and have a more developed eye for content, writing style and spelling than a typical designer who traditionally only flows type. Knowing how language and content fit in visually to a piece is just as important as knowing where it fits in.

A particular interest of mine is art direction and concepting of corporate annual reports - I love being able to tell a complex story simply through what is arguably one of the most important communication pieces for a company. Being able to distill operational facts and work them into a compelling visual theme within a company's established brand is a skill I've been able to hone quite well.

I am super passionate about delivering exceptional client experiences through being on brief, on time and on budget. I am known for going above and beyond for clients when I believe in the work and am able to meaningfully contribute to the success of the business.
