Jenna Zelkowski

Senior Designer, Design B&B

Jenna Zelkowski is a former east coast graphic designer now based in Chicago. A long-time fan of Flux Student Design Competition, she was involved in the early years of Flux, way back when it was a wee competition in the Shepherd University Mac lab. She served on the AIGA Blue Ridge board and has fond memories of a strong design community and the inspiring events that blossomed.

Since earning her BFA from Shepherd in 2011, Jenna has worked with RidgeRunner Publishing, Graphcom Creative, and at the (bygone) Baltimore outpost of Design B&B. In January 2020, Jenna and a few other designers relocated to Chicago so that the entire Design B&B team could be under one roof.

Approaching design with an insatiable curiosity and a healthy dose of empathy, Jenna never shies away from rolling up her sleeves and getting her hands dirty. These days she can mostly be found crafting all things identity and packaging, and is always looking forward to the next food-focused photoshoot.
