Jen is the rare graphic designer who thinks both analytically and creatively, and who excels at all parts of a project from ideation through design to print-ready execution. Since 2016, Might & Main has called on Jen to assist with a number of editorial design projects. Throughout each project, she is extremely organized, efficient, process- and detail-oriented, a clear and thorough communicator, and a creative problem-solver who knows where to thoughtfully push the bounds and where to respect the brand standards and stylistic choices made by our brand designers. On every project, for every client, Jen has proven herself a valuable extension of our small team.

Jen is my go-to collaborator for the myriad of client projects Studio PKC handles. Really, she is the creative face of Studio PKC and her passion for design and visual storytelling elevates the work we do to drive results for our clients. Jen’s artistry comes through every project — from high-stakes brand identities and annual reports to infographics that translate complex ideas into at-a-glance understanding. She’s always up for a challenge like bringing good design to user-friendly Word templates! And the concept presentations she creates always wow our clients; they feel seen and heard as Jen deftly guides them to the visual style that differentiates and will expand effortlessly as they grow. What I appreciate most is Jen’s thought partnership and her ability to explore creative solutions from a variety of angles. Through our co-creation process, we riff back and forth between the words and the art, tweaking and experimenting to achieve the perfect alchemy of content and design.

Puritan has worked with Jen now for almost 15 years, through two of our agency relationships, where she was the art director, and now directly with her own studio. She helped us develop our brand aesthetic and knows it so well, sometimes even better than we do! We trust and value her spot-on instincts and design guidance, especially as we’ve continued to grow so rapidly.

Having Jen create my visual identity was a dream come true! As an author, coach, and consultant, I wanted my brand to convey both my personal spirit and professional expertise. Jen developed a comprehensive brand system that integrated these three different branches of my business, giving me maximum flexibility and coherence in my visual communications. In the many years since, she has designed every visual asset for my business. Thanks to Jen’s strategic savvy, creative genius, and collaborative spirit, I have absolute confidence in every communication I create. She has played an integral role in the evolution and success of my business. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give Jen 100 stars!
I’ve worked with Jen since 2009, first as an account manager at a Portland ad agency, then as my contractor when I started my own marketing and design agency. She has truly been a joy to work with and a trusted “right arm” of my business. She always delivers the gold-standard of design work, and she makes me look good, I’ve learned so much from her over the years. No matter what the project or the challenge, she finds the best way forward.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jen for my business graphic design needs for two years. She refreshed my logo and designed my merchandise, business cards, and website banners. Jen is an absolutely phenomenal and skilled designer. When you choose to work with Jen, you can trust that you are hiring someone creative and imaginative, as well as reliable and organized. Jen is a great communicator and listener, who maintains a clear, open dialogue throughout the creative process. Jen will take your vision, and seamlessly incorporate her own professional judgement, making the final product the best possible design it can be. The graphics I received are better than what I had even imagined! I have gotten so many compliments on my logo and website since launching, and I couldn’t be more pleased and impressed with the results. I recommend Jen without hesitation for all of your graphic design needs!
