Born in the Appalachian Mountains, raised by a woodworker and a high school teacher, Jenni Kotting considers herself a craftswoman rather than an artist. Although she led an academic life for many years, she has found her heart and soul in creative communications for social justice. When asked how she got here, Jenni is quick to point out that her best skills are the self-taught ones. Her dad showed her how to use a lathe at age 12; she first experimented with HTML at age 15; changed her car brakes at age 19; taught herself Adobe Creative Suite and graphic design by age 22; became a Communications Director by age 28; and launched her freelance graphic/web design and photography by age 30.
Jenni's freelance clients are typically individuals and organizations in the social justice world. Having worked in nonprofit and academic realms for the last decade, she collaborates easily and quickly with folks who want to improve their organizational style and branding, create templates that can be used again and again, and revive their online presence through template-based web design with options for customization.
