telos :  the highest end / an ultimate objective / a moral purpose.

What is our telos?  Serving others through design.  From full company branding to the specifics of logo design, we help everything you do reach its fullest fruition. Telos Design, LLC is a graphic design studio based in Phoenix, Arizona, with clients nationwide. 

Telos founder, Jessica Connolly, moved to Texas in pursuit of a career in design after graduating from the College of Architecture at Kansas State University. During her seven years at Alterstudio Architecture, an award-winning firm, she assisted with the designs of multiple residential renovations and new constructions. She also developed consistent branding and marketing for the firm’s collateral materials; curated portfolios; coordinated publication and award submissions; and developed architectural graphics. 

Telos works with corporate entities, nonprofit organizations and individuals to create unique logos, collateral material, special event invitations, and web designs. A background in architecture and a passion for graphic design combine to bring a unique eye for color, proportion, and composition with a modern aesthetic.

In May 2014, the Connolly family relocated to Arizona to be closer to other family. In addition to her work, Jessica finds joy spending time with her hilarious husband (you can find out more about him here) while chasing their three energetic children.

My company, American Philanthropic, has hired Jessica to design websites, logos, and organizational collateral material, among other things. She has the most important gift of a graphic designer, which is to  create attractive, clean, visually compelling products. She's also wonderfully easy and professional to work with, and she does well even when given fairly little to go on. I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Jessica is one of the most talented, professional, dedicated designers with whom I have ever had the pleasure to work. Besides being a total pleasure to work with on a daily basis, she brings a high level of sophistication, taste, and design acumen with her to every design project she touches. Jessica's ability to make clients feel comfortable and heard during the design process is invaluable. I hope very much to work with her again someday soon.

Let me just say, that is a pleasure to be working with you again!
