Senior Design Consultant
Jennifer is BrownFlynn’s Senior Design Consultant responsible for art direction on client engagements and the Firm’s brand standards. She leads BrownFlynn’s in-house design team and oversees creative services across a network of creative partners. Jennifer works across a range of styles, adapting each client’s aesthetic preferences while leveraging design and functionality to enhance their sustainability and business strategy. She is also our resident typographic geek, new media strategist, and fortunately for BrownFlynn’s clients, a big fan of caffeine.
Jennifer couples her 20 years of experience and strength in interactive design with the intricacies of the new GRI G4 framework to create compelling and engaging reports and communications for clients to tell their sustainability story. Recently, her design of Southwire’s 2014 Sustainability Report incorporated GRI’s G4 core option guidelines and interactive features such as a materiality matrix, video gallery, and timeline to create an engaging online experience which the company considers “a current, meaningful, and informative look at our company.”
When not at the office having fun with type, color, and imagery, Jennifer can be found doing the same at home creating craft projects with her two daughters, Payton and Cameron. She enjoys relaxing with her family, especially the rare date night to the latest movie with her husband Billy. She also calls her mom every day.
