ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Jen’s first designs were inspired by a trip to India, and by subsequent conversations she had with friends interested in environmental activism. The AVANT-GARDENER and BEET THE SYSTEM designs grew directly out of discussions with a particular friend, an eccentric coffee-fanatic who now runs her own community-oriented cafĂ© (Trouble Coffee) in San Francisco. She was inspired by Russian avany garde posters when creating those graphics.
