Hello and welcome! I'm Jess, and I'm glad you're here.

Launched in 2009 as a way to update far-flung family, Roy Joy has become a community for creatives, mamas, makers, and dreamers.

I run Jess Roy Creative, a design agency for creative entrepreneurs who are all about communicating the beauty, relevance, and depth of their work through stunning, soulful visuals. Looking for visual branding, custom website design, or creative consulting? Come say hi!

I am a curious home cook who's style is intuitive and improvisational, which works...most of the time. Until it really doesn't. If you're into delicious food, take a look at my collection of recipes.

Penelope and Felix are my two kiddos, and they are the most wondrous creatures on the planet. These wondrous creatures have taught me stone-cold humility, the value of Daniel Tiger, and are constantly reminding me that life can be challenging and beautiful at the same time.

I am a partner to the renaissance man with a plan, my musicologist husband Matthew. He brings a lot to the table, but his undying love of languages, good food, reading Harry Potter aloud, and his family makes him the BEST.

I am a collaborative people-helper who loves watching others grow, succeed, and find joy in their lives. When we are all a bit happier, healthier, and kinder, the world is literally a better place.

Call me crazy, but I'm a hardcore futuristic optimist who is constantly looking ahead. I'm a big fan of vision casting, brainstorming, dreaming, and collaging. (I know we have Pinterest now, but never ever underestimate the power of collaging.) As Marie Forleo says - everything is figureoutable.

Again, welcome! I would love to hear from you - reach out and we'll connect.

All love,
