Big agency experience. Small shop nimbleness.

Her + Himsel was formed on the premise that good work and great ideas don’t need to be locked within agency walls. We function as an “un-agency” – partnering with like-minded, experienced specialists to create stellar, dynamic teams for client projects and support. This keeps overhead low and hourly rates affordable. So clients get top-notch, strategic, creative solutions without any pretense, ego or ulterior motives. We believe work is serious – but working together should be fun.

We’re fast learners, deep thinkers and smooth talkers. (Well … minus that last part.)

Determine the who, the what, the where, the when & the how

03. Create

About Jessica Himsel

A graduate of Washington University in St. Louis with a dual major in Marketing and Graphic Communications, Jessica Himsel has spent 25+ years crafting and telling brand stories for international conglomerates like the YMCA, Pentair and Sephora – as well as homegrown staples like the Milwaukee Brewers and Mitchell Airport.

She began her career with advertising powerhouses DDB (NYC) and C-K (Milwaukee). Prior to going out on her own, she spent more than a decade at a full-service boutique agency in Walker’s Point. Her professional accomplishments include many national accolades.

Her high standards, creativity, quick wit and breadth of experience has allowed Jessica to craft effective, strategic solutions for decades. Since launching Her & Himsel at the end of 2016, Jessica has amassed a list of steady of clients both locally and nationally, including NARI Milwaukee, REV Recreation, Pentair, Discover Magazine (Kalmbach), Lakeside Development Companies and YMCAs (through a partnership with a fundraising development firm).

Jessica was recently honored as a “Woman of Significance” in Milwaukee’s creative community. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for Step Beyond Green to Healthy, a nonprofit aligned with homeowners and the remodeling industry, dedicated to creating healthier indoor environments. Excited to give back, she is actively involved in supporting the next generation of Milwaukee professionals by being a Coach and Advisor for The Commons (an entrepreneurial skills accelerator) and a volunteer portfolio reviewer for AIGA Wisconsin.

Born and raised in Milwaukee, Jessica has also spent time living in St. Louis and NYC. Her Midwestern roots keep her grounded, her adventures keep her inspired. A mother of three, she loves taking road trips with her family. When not working or playing with her kids, she can be found improvising recipes, gardening hardy perennials and interjecting fun wherever possible.
