Hello, my name is

Jennifer Dudek

I'm a graphic designer in Philadelphia, PA

Hi, I'm Jen!

I'm a highly collaborative graphic designer, art director, multitasker extraordinaire, and pretty badass weekend warrior mountain biker.

I’m a creative and detailed-oriented designer — a passionate leader and team player with a proven track record for translating complex ideas into slick, successful solutions. I’ve managed and motivated interdisciplinary teams, both as the official in-house go-to gal and agency powerhouse designer. I’ve helped build and managed brands from the ground up, worn every hat possible, and jumped through many hoops to find the solution for every client.

I am currently working as the Graphic Design Manager at The Franklin Institute.

Key areas of experience include Art Direction and Senior-Level Design in print and digital formats for event and environmental design, identity, branding, brand management, project management, direct mail, photography, and photo post-production. I have also been known to put together a mean excel spreadsheet every once in awhile, and I can ride a bike pretty well. If I’m not sure how to do something, I’ll find a way to make it happen.

It sounds cheesy, but I truly love what I do everyday and love working with clients who are as passionate about their business as I am about design. I design because I love doing it. I thrive on building lasting relationships while producing quality work for aspiring, open-minded clients who understand and value the creative journey and process.

The Franklin Institute (2016-Present)

Graphic Design Manager

I oversee the graphic design department in addition to designing projects for print, web, exhibit graphics and museum signage. I review and art direct work prior to client submission for review and approval, as well as estimate and produce projects in keeping with the brand and design standards for the organization. I coordinate with multiple departments in both the conceptual and approval process of all collateral materials. As the Graphic Design Manager I am responsible for the final product, which means to produce an on-time, on-budget, high quality product that satisfies the museum’s needs.
