Hi! I'm

Jennifer Haven

About Me

This is me.

I'm Jennifer, a web and graphic designer currently living in Sioux Falls, South Dakota with my husband and two cats. I currently work for a website development company but I also have a freelance business that is coming into its tenth year of business. I have a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design which I received back in the early 90's, when the 1.4MB diskette was a hot commodity and it was inconceivable how big your graphic would have to be to actually fill it! If you even had a website it was something "underground" and usually built on GeoCities. Happily though, the Internet (and computers - gateway, anyone?) matured and so did I! I now have over 24 years experience in graphic design and front-end web development/user-experience design. My goto phrase of choice when I tell people what I do and get a blank stare is "I just make stuff look pretty".

I love what I do and love working with people who are in need of my services. From logos, posters, wedding invitations, newspaper ads, websites, e-commerce/B2B sites and even billboards and vehicle wraps - I get a kick out of the challenge each one brings!
