She leads the creative direction and implementation of “Kuja Kuja,” an award-winning business intelligence platform for humanitarian services in refugee settlements. Jennifer’s craft and practice in design has been shaped by her training at Pentagram and Hatch Show Print, mentorship by design legend Sylvia Harris of Citizen Research & Design, and leadership experience at IDEO.org. At IDEO.org, Jennifer led Launchpad, a studio dedicated to explorations at the edge of social innovation and design.
Her work has received global attention and accolades, most recently the Service Design Award from Core77, and her designs have been featured in Fast Company, Communication Arts and Graphis.
