Jennifer has never been someone to do things halfway, whether conquering a disability with the force of a giant, or advocating for the importance of fine arts in the educational process, it’s evident that she will continue to produce innovative and important creative campaigns, and, that she’s not the type of person who takes her journey or success for granted.

Meet The Founder

 
 

meet Jennifer bethel

Jennifer knew from an early age she wanted to be an artist. Whether it was dancing, painting or simply making a mess with play dough, she was always inspired by the arts. Her journey was unusual though. Jennifer engaged in a profound uphill battle: to achieve success in the visual arts industry when her opponent is ocular albinism, a visual disability that deemed her legally blind at the age of one. 

Her talents quickly outweighed her visual disability winning her art student of the year in high school, a portfolio scholarship to Savannah College or Art and Design where she graduated magna cum laude and national and international recognition for her work. She always won the prestigious Rising Star award by Campaign and Elections magazine, and the 40 under 40 award by American Association for Politics. In addition, Jennifer was nominated for the prestigious Women of The Year Award by WJLA-ABC 7 as well as having her work featured on Jon Stewart and PBS.

The dramatic nature of Jennifer’s story doesn’t end with her disability and her journey. In an industry where low-cost competitors are born overnight, Jennifer has developed an approach that has kept her strategic branding campaigns relevant. And while Jennifer’s modern view on branding has always been steadfast, her keen insight into strategy is what sets her work apart.  She truly bridges the gap that ties good design, usability and branding together. Working with Jennifer means working with a talented strategist and artist that understands effective marketing and communications materials are more than a pretty design.
