As Creative Director, Jen excels at tapping into clients’ goals with approachable communication and design expertise. She is constantly inspired by the world around her – from movie posters to the latest pair of Nike’s, Jen uses her unique creative lens to encourage and lead the Bates Creative design team.
When Jen approaches a new project, she envisions the task at hand with an intelligent, clean and streamlined eye before guiding her Bates Creative design team to develop creative solutions for each and every client.
Two things that you’ll never find in Jen’s personal and professional life are clutter and wasted space. Every element in her design has a function and serves a purpose to the overall picture.
With over 10 years of experience ranging across print and digital media platforms, Jen has created compelling design experiences for clients including the Marine Corps Marathon, ExxonMobil, Smithsonian, NPR and Napa Valley Vintners since joining the team in 2011.
