About Jennifer Mead

With over 12 years of experience in the creative industry, I am a seasoned art director and graphic designer dedicated to crafting strategic design solutions that drive engagement and achieve client objectives. My passion lies in bringing people and ideas together through innovative and impactful design.

Certified by AIGA Design in innovation and creativity in teams and organizations, I am deeply committed to professional development and collaboration. In my role as an art director at Simpleview, I collaborate closely with clients and designers to conceptualize and deliver original and innovative brand and web designs tailored to the tourism industry. My portfolio includes successful projects for destination marketing organizations such as Visit Austin, Visit Indy, and the Maine Tourism Association, as well as rebranding initiatives for Visit Watertown, SD, and Visit Milwaukee.

At Simpleview, I take pride in mentoring and training designers in tools such as Figma, Adobe XD, and UX principles, ensuring that our team remains at the forefront of design best practices. I also manage projects and designers to guarantee on-time and on-budget delivery, consistently exceeding client expectations.

Beyond my role at Simpleview, I am deeply involved in the creative community. I previously served as host of CreativeMornings/Tucson, a monthly breakfast lecture series, where I fostered a culture of creativity and inspiration within our local community. Additionally, I have served as a board member for organizations such as AIGA Arizona, Female StoryTellers, and Ad2Tucson, where I advocate for the advancement and empowerment of fellow creatives.

I am passionate about leveraging design to make a positive impact, and I look forward to collaborating with like-minded individuals and organizations to bring meaningful projects to life. Let's connect and explore how we can work together to create compelling design solutions that leave a lasting impression.
