About Me

Hi, I'm Jen!

Thanks for stopping by.

Let’s get right down to it. I have always loved good design. It draws you in… makes you feel and think, and conveys a message. But it’s not easy! 

As owner and lead designer of Stop and Say Hello Design, I take pride in making what can be an intimidating task into a smooth and effective process. I oversee every aspect of each project ensuring your comfort and confidence. I have worked in the design industry for 15+ years and am grateful to have helped a wide variety of businesses, non-profits and individuals feel confident and proud of their finished product.

  • My working relationship with Jen began in 2010 and in all that time she has provided exceptional creative direction for my company. Her approach is well-thought through with attention to the details, and her response time is amazing. She is open to ideas but always adds her touch to make the finished product exceptional. Regardless of the project, she works to understand the strategy, provides creative options and delivers ahead of time and on budget. Five-star designer in my book.

  • Jen Ross is a talented designer who I have worked with for 10+ years. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking an experienced professional who is adept at quick turnarounds and beautiful, high-quality work! I am particularly impressed with Jen’s initiative – she goes above and beyond to give each project the time that it needs and, from her depth of experience, can propose new ideas or solutions that a client may not have initially considered, but that would make the project even better.

  • I only have a few people on my speed dial and Jen is one of them! She is, without a doubt, one of the most talented designers I’ve ever worked with – and I’ve been in the publishing industry for over 10 years. She’s super professional, incredibly efficient, and insanely accommodating.

  • When Jen takes on a project for us, she has the ability to interpret what we’re looking for without a lengthy explanation. That creative intuition has provided us with brand design, collateral materials, online needs and even a published book. She simply does an amazing job regardless the assignment – with options and always on time. I truly value our collaborative relationship and feel fortunate Jen’s on our team.

  • I have been working with Jen for over 5 years on a wide variety of materials ranging from event invitations and flyers/mailers to exhibition panels. Sometimes it seems she was inside my head and creates exactly what I was imagining, but maybe couldn’t fully articulate, and always with some extra special touches that take the design to the next level. I can count on her to ask the right questions and strategize the best way to present information clearly and concisely.

  • I have been working with Jen for almost a year now as our primary graphic artist/creative. She has helped us completely overhaul all of our communication from new brand colors, to better icons for the website and templates (letterhead and proposal). She even helped us design cool company t-shirts! She can do it all. She is extremely professional to work with. She’s responsive, fast, and organized. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough!
