Jennifer Minning Grimes is the principal of Nektar Design — a full-service graphic design studio. Nektar Design helps marketing professionals and business owners bring their marketing plans to life by creating emotionally engaging design based on sound strategic planning. Jennifer specializes corporate and employee communications with projects ranging from brand development to advertising and marketing collateral, environmental graphics, web design and design for multi-platform training/education programs.

Prior to founding Nektar Design, Jennifer was Senior Art Director with the Arras Group (Cleveland, Ohio) where she worked primarily in their home and hardware division on the Moen, Sealy and Simmons accounts. She also spent a great portion of her time at Arras working on Customer Relationship Marketing programs for Procter & Gamble. Previously, Jennifer was the Senior Designer at Washington Hospital Center (Washington, D.C.) in the Public Affairs and Marketing department. Jennifer has been part of creative teams in other design studios including Murphy Design, Shriver Design and the internal creative department at NCR.

Jennifer -- or Jen to most everyone -- lives in Cleveland with her beautifully precocious sons, Ben and Nathan, and their sweet old dogs, Cody and Lucy. In what free time she can eek out, she enjoys distance running and has several 10 mile and half marathons under her belt. Yoga and Cross Fit are other passions, along with cooking for friends and family. Read Less
