I'm Jess Graves. I am a senior-level creative specializing in media and brand building. 

I specialize in the digital sphere, art and creative direction, placemaking, storytelling, and brand oversight in food, beverage, culture and retail.

My most recent projects include the Atlanta Gallery Collective, the HowStuffWorks Question Booth, Sunday Supper South, and the James Beard portrait project, executed during my tenure as the Director of Marketing for Ponce City Market and Westside Provisions District. 

I am also the original founder and publisher of The Love List, a respected twelve-year-old digital lifestyle publication built around the style and culture of the South, which sold in 2017.

I make frequent speaking engagements, leading panel discussions and presentations for organizations like The Southern C Summit, General Assembly, Neiman Marcus and Brandshop.

I am also a longtime contributor to Southern Living and the former style columnist for Atlanta magazine. Other bylines have included Town & Country, Eater and Garden & Gun. 

Mentions and honors have included features in Domino and Food & Wine magazines, at Barney's New York, and in Southern Living magazine, who named me one of the "75 Most Stylish Southerners".

In my free time, I serve on committees for the High Museum Wine Auction and Episcopal Cathedral Young Collectors. I'm also the proud owner of  a (mostly well-behaved) rescue golden retriever named Maggie. 


 An overhaul in look and feel for the @poncecitymarket instagram that saw a dramatic increase in new followers (from 40k to 100k) and engagement year over year. Representative  of 50+ retail, restaurant and tech brands. Twice a week, our team executes a full-scale studio photo and video shoot intended to capture a half-month's worth of content. We maintain an intensive content calendar, a tracker to ensure fair content representation among our shops and retail across all channels, and of course create involved art boards and shot lists to ensure our team of seven (project manager, art director, photographer, stylist, copywriter, videographer and second shooter) stays on track. Then we write and schedule the content, optimizing and reinforcing it with a smart ad spend.
