We had the good fortune of connecting with Jessica Moore and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jessica, why did you decide to pursue a creative path?
I grew up in an artistic family, so it’s part of my DNA. My parents were both very artistic. My Mom played several musical instruments, she painted, and sketched any chance she got. My Dad was a radio personality and writer. They always encouraged me to express my creativity growing up, so I felt like persuing a creative career was inevitable. I took art classes all through high school, and decided to pick a major in college that would allow me to be creative and help people. One of the ways that I felt the need to express my creativity, was through revising, or creating interior spaces. I remember painting various rooms and rearranging furniture in my parent’s house at a very young age. My early career didn’t allow me to be as creative as I would have liked to have been, but it helped me to get that work/life experience I needed to eventually start my own design business. It also helps that my best friend and husband is a creative (artist/photographer). He definitely had a part in persuing my career as a designer. Now that I am 3 years into owning and operating my own design business, I feel like I am truly doing what I was meant to do.Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
When I first started my business, I was mainly focused on designing projects for our fix and flip business. I got a lot of remodels under my belt before marketing my services to others. I enjoyed the remodel and project management side of the business and wanted to help others achieve their deisgn goals. At first the most challenging part of starting up my business was coming up with my processes and procedures. It took me a while to iron out the details as far as what I would offer and what I would charge my clients. A majority of what I do is in the beginning phases of the project, so it was important that I had a solid process that my clients understood and that was easy to communicate. Now that I have most of my processes in place, my business is more streamlined. Another challenge was finding the right tools to best serve my clients. I had to experiment with various software programs to develop design concepts to present. Now that I have found some amazing programs to communicate my ideas and provide visual tools to my clients, it has made the initial design process run smoothly. My ultimate goal is to provide all of the tools to help my clients visulalize the end result and make some important design decisions before the start of their project.Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Here are some fun spots around town that I would definitely recommend checking out! For brunch the Bread Winners Cafe, and Snooze are great spots. I would recommend Eno’s Pizza Tavern in Dallas or Forney for lunch or dinner. Some beautiful spots to hang out would be White Rock Lake, the Arboretum, and the Dallas Museum of Art. You can grab a quick bite and a stroll at Klyde Warren park.Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to give a shoutout to my husband, Azrow Moore III. Without his support, I would not have been able to persue my dream career as a business owner and Designer. He is not afraid to give his honest opinion and constructive criticism to push me and help me improve on a daily basis.
