Jen from Red Instead took some wonderful product photos for me. She was very professional in service and delivery, and produced some gorgeous photos to showcase my products. I highly recommend Jen for anyone needing product photos.
Logo, Poster, Website, Pop-up Banner
Lighthouse appointed Jen Leheny from Red Instead as the graphic designer for Brilliant Idea, a website providing information about the ACT Women’s Microcredit Program. Lighthouse is delivering this program with assistance from the ACT Government through the Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services, Office for Women. As a small business owner herself, we felt that Jen had a good understanding of our target market and designed accordingly. We are very happy with the website, logo and flyer she designed and found her very professional to deal with.
With limited funds available and with no experience in the field of websites, Goyder Street Library as a not-for-profit association was finding it difficult to make progress. Jen Leheny of Red Instead offered to help us at greatly discounted costs and after a single face-to-face meeting when we discussed our ideas, she took up the running and gently guided us through the process, options and possibilities. Our ideas were quickly translated into a very attractive proposal which has exceeded our expectation. We are very grateful to have had the benefit of her obvious expertise in the field and her intuitive grasp of our somewhat vague ideas. It has been an enjoyable experience to work with her and we look forward to a continuing relationship.
Logo Design, Computer Skills Training
Working with Jen is a real pleasure! I engaged her services initially to create a new logo for my consultancy. I was immediately impressed by Jen’s professionalism and willingness to hear what I wanted. She designed the perfect logo and I have received a lot of positive feedback about it. Jen has also helped me by tailoring a training program to answer all my Word questions and has taught me some excellent graphic design ‘tricks’ to help me with my work. Jen puts a lot of time into finding out what it is I need to know and do in order to make my business journey easier. I am so impressed by both her creative and professional approach and I highly recommend Jen Leheny and Red Instead to any small business wanting the services of a graphic designer.
I engaged Jen Leheny to take photographs at the launch of my book Riley and the Dancing Lion. Jen insisted upon knowing what kinds of shots I was after, of whom, what type of style, angles, etc. Then when it came to the actual event, Jen was prompt, unobtrusive, warm, enthusiastic and worked the room like magic, capturing moments that were unstaged, natural and thoughtful – exactly the types of photos I love the most. She also snapped plenty of fantastic ‘official’ photos, despite the challenge of a room full of helium balloons, and the resultant photos were absolutely beautiful. I wouldn’t hesitate to engage Jen’s photographic skills again.
Jen was fabulous as she was able to capture so many beautiful images for us as event photographer for the Handmade Market. She was thoughtful in her images and also in the service she provided to us. She had to deal with the crowds and the heat and still managed to capture everything perfectly for us. Her images have come in very handy for many media stories we have done. I would highly recommend Red Instead to any business, large or small, needing professional images.
