“Design is the silent ambassador of your brand.”
- Paul Rand, art director and graphic designer
I’m a graphic designer in Minneapolis and I help business owners and marketing directors at packaging-related manufacturing firms, small businesses and non-profits reach prospects, engage audiences and win new customers with professional graphic design and marketing services.
I recently found some of my old report cards and noticed the comments from my art teacher in high school (see below), which was an early indicator of how I ended up in design. I graduated from Concordia College with a B.A. in Communications with an emphasis in Advertising and a Minor in Art. I would spend hours working on a project in the studio to get it just right and loved every minute of it.
I’ve worked in several different areas of design. I started out learning the print process, which fueled my love of all things ink and paper. Then I worked in publishing for a few years and eventually made the move to an ad agency in the warehouse district of Minneapolis. I worked there for 8 years which became the impetus to start my own design studio. I bring my enthusiasm for design into every aspect of my business, as well as the client work I do today.
My work has been published in Packaging World, Healthcare Packaging, Law & Politics, SuperLawyers, and MSP magazines and I am a Board Member of the Institute of Packaging Professionals, Minnesota Chapter.
When I’m not busy at work, I enjoy spending time outdoors by going on camping trips up north, kayaking on nearby lakes or just taking a walk in the neighborhood. I also love a good renovation project, you can usually find me working on re-purposing furniture (among other things) with chalk paint.
If you want to know more about what it's like to work with me, let's talk!

I’ve worked with Jennifer for almost 20 years. She is a superb designer and an accomplished content developer and writer. Her creative ideas have always delivered desired results. As a client of hers, our organization could always rely on outstanding creative solutions on-time and within budget. I am fortunate to have the opportunity of continuing to work with her now.
