Hi there! My name is Jenn. I enjoy embracing challenges and finding innovative, unique, and creative solutions. I am interested in a wide variety of styles and strive to incorporate many different techniques in my work. Each design has a personal narrative and tells it’s own unique story. I am especially inspired by dramatic angles, geometric elements, and anything and everything to do with typography, ampersands, and hand-lettering. Enjoy the site!
