When Jennifer Forrest enrolled at Indiana University, she dreamed of being a photographer for a big publication like National Geographic.
But fate had a different plan.
While pursuing a degree in photojournalism, she did an internship for Hoosier Energy, where she had a variety of responsibilities – one of which was designing ads. The experience sparked her interest in graphic design. She completed her bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Anthropology in 1997.
From there, she worked for Clear Channel Outdoor for seven years, initially supervising billboard production and photographing the billboards after installation, and eventually transitioning to a creative director, handling graphic design and production.
In 2005, Jennifer decided to brave the freelance world and started Jennifer Forrest Design. Working out of her home, her business continued for 12 years, developing engaging and creative print and digital designs for clients in a broad range of industries.
After missing a team environment and wanting to work outside the home, Jennifer joined CorComm Creative in June 2017 as a graphic designer. She relishes opportunities to work with clients who are helping society, while being able to be creative and enjoy the ever-changing industry.
Jennifer lives in Greenwood with Adam, her husband of 18 years, their son, Jack (12), and their two dogs, Rocky and Apollo. Jennifer loves camping and traveling with her family, watching movies and going to concerts. She and her husband love to daydream about traveling the country in an Airstream camper when they retire.
A little on the light-hearted side
