  • Event Photography

    Jen Leheny attended the MissChief Maker High Tea as our resident photographer. She was incredibly professional, non-obtrusive to the patrons and took some delightful photos of the event. I would highly recommend Jen.

  • Website Design

    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.

    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.

  • Event Photography

    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

  • 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 Design, Business Cards and Web Design

    When I first met with Jen of Red Instead to plan and develop my website I had a lot of ideas but was unsure how to implement them. Jen’s patience, creativity and intuition enabled her to work with me to create a wonderful website – more than I had hoped for. Since having a website for my business was a long held dream I was passionate about developing a website that was reflective of Livity’s purpose – creating connection and encouraging creativity. Jen was supportive and respectful of my passion and worked tirelessly with me to achieve that. I cannot recommend Jen highly enough and she remains my choice for design, photography and website development. Thank you Jen!
