Portland Design Week: Day 4


Disclaimer: It is design week and I hope I will be able to articulate myself well in these posts. Due to my high energy and overall excitement about the events, these posts may seem a bit over the top, full of emotions and as a whole… will probably contain a ton of exclamation marks. Let’s just say… you have been warned.

(This coming weekend, you can expect a full video recap and video clips from each day on my YouTube Channel! Follow me on twitter instagram – I will post the link there when it is posted! Or subscribe to my channel to see it first! In the mean time, I will be blogging here all week!)

Read my other Design Week Portland posts here!

Holy shit. It’s only Tuesday? That means three more days of feeling the way I am feeling right now (enlightened, exhausted and excited… all at once)? THE THREE E’S? I’M IN! *thumbs up!*

Tonight I attended Curiosity Club Panel Discussion “This is It – Or is It? “ at Hand-Eye Supply



I did not even tweet during this event, because I was so fixated on every word the panel was saying. I, however, filled my notebook with quotes after quotes after quotes. Which I am going to share with you!

Watch Jehn Design: New website header

Hi guys!

I am so excited to launch my new website. This new site, to me, is symbolic of a new chapter for me in my life and it feels really cool and important. This video was really fun and enjoyable for me to make – I did not have any plan for the header, so you got to see a little bit of what my creative process can look like. Each project is different for me, in terms of my creative process. I plan on making more videos like this – so stay tuned for those!
You are all amazing and don’t forget that it is okay to believe in yourself! YOU are worth it!

Thank you for reading and watching!



My August Favorites


Hi guys! I know this video went up late – sometimes life happens and life comes before your passions. I filmed this video at the end of August, I just did not have time to sit down and edit it.
This month has been amazing though, my family came into town – I got to meet my 5 month old niece and it was truly a special time. The day I have off to film every week, I spent cuddling and just watching her. She is seriously adorable! I miss her and my family already.

I hope you enjoy my August favorites video none the less! I love making these videos and sharing things I have been loving, with you guys! What favorite things have you been loving this month? As you can see, I don’t have a strict theme to mine… which means you don’t either. You can tell me anything from your favorite conversation you had this month, to your favorite lollipop :) All things in life are important!


Enjoy the rest of your day,

My TECHFESTNW Experience!

Hey guys!

How are you? I hope your week is going well so far! In this video I not only talk to you about my TechFestNW 2014 experience, but I share a little story with you about how I overcame my fears. Being scared to do something can be a bit overwhelming and nerve wrecking – but something I have learned is that feeling won’t last forever. Whatever you are doing that is scary, will eventually end, and you will be so proud of yourself for going through it… and THAT feeling will last forever!

I really hope you enjoyed this video! If you did, make sure you hit the like button so I know that you did like it & make sure you hit subscribe, so you can keep up to date with other videos I put out!


You’re amazing – keep being you and doing the best you can!

How to network: The Networking Game

Hello :)

In this weeks video I am going to show you a quick, fun way that will help you with the somewhat daunting “How to network” idea. When I moved from Phoenix to Portland and was going to events without knowing a single soul, I desperately wanted some structure and purpose to my networking. So, I came up with a game I like to call “The Networking Game”. It’s fun and easy, I promise!

If you try out The Networking Game & or if this in anyway, helped you answer the question “How to network” – let me know! I would love to hear about it!!

Enjoy the video!

My July Favorites – Graphic Design, Podcasts & People

Hello :)

This week I filmed my monthly favorites video. I am very excited about this series. Ever since I decided to vlog instead of blog, my life has changed. Blogging has always been difficult for me, for many reasons. I am finding stride with these videos and seeing actual possibilities. Especially in terms of sharing what I know and connecting with others than I can learn from. Moral of the story? Don’t give up. Keep trying things until you find what works for YOU. Leave the trends behind. Be yourself. Stay true to what makes YOUR soul sing.

Enjoy the video!

Typography Inspiration: Morro Bay, California

Hello :)

I went to California last week, with my brother, to surprise our sister. It was awesome to spend quality time with the family and to just take a bit of a breather from the day to day grind. While I was there, I really enjoyed the downtown Morro Bay area and found the typography inspiring. I love how every place you visit, you will notice, that the typography is very reflective of the area you are in. I really enjoyed filming and editing this video. I hope you enjoy it!

Portland Startup Weekend Access 2014

Hello :)

Is there something in your life that gives you that nudge to keep pursuing your passions? To continue working on your idea? For me, those nudges, come from seeing other people work on their ideas and following their passions.

A few weekends ago I attended Portland Startup Weekend Access as a design mentor. This Startup Weekend was different than the others I have been to. The weekend was being geared towards individuals with disabilities in hopes to create an environment where anyone can innovate together. Pretty sweet concept! During the weekend, Shashi, the facilitator, had expressed that he hopes that there will never have to be a separate event for individuals with disabilities again. That every Startup Weekend from here on out will be made to accommodate everyone. Inspiring stuff! Nudges all around! :)

I knew I wanted to bring my camera along with me, so that is what I did! I was able to capture some clips that I felt conveyed the vibe of the entire weekend; exciting, fun & encouraging! Going to events like this really inspires me to continue working on my passions and my ideas. What gives you inspiration? What nudges you? Let me know in the comments below!

I hope you enjoy the video! Oh & the video doesn’t show this… but a team lead by an 11 year old won. #nudge #nudge #nudge


Here is another video to give you more nudges :)
