Jenna Van Hout is an independent designer & artist in the Bay Area.
I design identities, websites, print things, and most other things. Most recently, I was the Lead Communications Designer for Hustle, where I redefined the brand of the revolutionary SMS tool. Prior to that, I have worked in several agencies, most notably as Principal Designer at Blue State Digital, where I focused on branding and digital design for non-profits and progressive brands.
