Jen Leheny is a multi-tasking web/graphic designer and photographer whose talents also stretch into handmade products. Her Red Instead label began as a range of gorgeous hand-created items, and has blossomed into a thriving design and branding company. Jen has a fine eye for detail, is inherently creative and is able to apply herself fully to any task, with professionalism and flair. She is a warm, supportive and approachable person, who takes enormous pride in her work – and it shows. Jen has done some event photography for me and I have been delighted with her photographs and the support she has shown me
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.
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.
Jen combines creative graphic design with a comprehensive understanding of product placement drawing on her background in IT and retail. Jen has a detailed eye for how a product can best be portrayed and follows that through with innovative web design. Jen created a dynamic place holder web page for us as an interim solution pending the development of a more comprehensive site. I’m looking forward to working again with Jen to develop that site in the near future.
Event Flyer Design
When I first approached Jen to create a flyer for my workshop, I had no idea what I wanted it to look like. It had to match my Corporate Identity, but apart from that, no clue. Jen was great at suggesting a style and developing the idea with me. I got back to her with changes several times and she was wonderfully patient, taking in my ideas and delivering very quickly and straight to the point. Loved her great customer service of getting back to me straight away, every single time. No delays, no waiting – great and accurate job. Will definitely come back for more!
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.
