Jen's a designer with roots in freelance, non-profit and corporate graphic design work (over 10 years). Roots which have further served as a great foundation for an art transition into the film world. With experience as Production Designer, Art Director, Set Designer, Set Dresser, Props Master, Specialty Prop Artist, Wardrobe & Costuming, and Art Assistant roles, as well as numerous pre and post-production art involvments from concept art to various graphics...she is uniquely equipped.
But let us tell you more about how it all got started...
Ideas come from the creative extraction of the human experience. What we experience-both good and bad-becomes absorbed into the fabric of who we are. Like a sponge, sometimes, when you give it a squeeze…an original expression of creativity is born.
Sponge Designs produces original creativity on a daily basis through freelance graphic design and film art department services, by a red-headed, superhero loving artist known as Jen.
Jen's creative experience started at an early age with a simple box of Crayola's, a giddy eye for new, crisp brochures in the hotel lobbies of every family vacay, and a hand that throughout high school was often covered by sharpie. Creativity which led to a degree in graphic design as a graduate of Kendall college of Art & Design, as well as continued education in Film Production years later in her career at Compass College of Cinematic Arts. But her learning didn't stop there, in 2017 Jen was accepted into a 2-week intensive production design workshop at the London Film School, taught by one of the Art Directors from Game of Thrones.
Her faith grounding her creative vision, Jen was led to work as a designer for Family Christian Stores. As her vision expanded, she moved to full-time freelance, working with numerous clients like; Kumveka - A non profit marketing agency that provided branding and communication services to Christ-focused ministries around the world; The Oasis Network - a multifaceted international organization that works to equip and service leaders all over the globe. All while her collaborations with production companies continued to expand. Some of those including, but not limited to; Miles Media Films, Bearfruit Films, John Boros Productions, Be Your Own Hollywood, 10 West Studios, Urbanity Films, Hilltop Studio Productions, Big Boss Productions, Permoveo Productions, Reel Red Films, A Road Less Travelled Productions, Troika Pictures, Misery Bay Films, Tim Lieber Productions, Grithouse Films, IndieKrush Studios, Quantum Arc Media, and Silver State Productions. Each day is never the same, as she continues to take on new clients, builds bigger teams, and juggles freelance for numerous businesses, non-profits, and feature films.
Jen loves God, she loves people, and she loves design. Whether brainstorming with various teams, traveling to China to train designers, using her creativity at her church, running on adrenaline with a film crew 24/7, or constructing a homemade flying machine for a Steampunk costume to wear Swing Dancing downtown in her hometown, Jen's in heaven using her talents and loving dynamic relationships.
If she's wielding a sharpie and concepting on a sketchpad, that's Jen's niche. But her skill-set, training, and experience is vast. As a professional, her work both solo and amongst many creative teams has served the corporate, non-profit and artistic needs of businesses, organizations and artists from around the world.
We're not sure what else you'd like to know about Jen, or if you're even still reading this. But for those who are, you might want to grab an umbrella...it's raining. Unless you're like Jen and you have a cape.
