With two comedy albums and a book to her name, she has established herself as a heavyweight in the realm of entertainment. She is a round table regular on Chelsea Lately, and most recently she has been featured on Funny or Die’s sketch series Drunk History and it’s continuation on Comedy Central. If you have not seen Drunk History yet, you need to. Jen’s episode in particular. Her’s is legendary.
Jen approached us to build a personal website to showcase her multi-faceted career and to connect with her many adoring fans. She was already using Tumblr for her site and was very comfortable with using it, so we created a custom Tumblr theme for her. We kept the design light and clean, with a simple palette of blues and greys to highlight content. We avoided distracting visitors with whistles and bells and kept the approach unfussy and straightforward. In the end, Jen had a website she loved the look of and she could still use the same controls she always used to update her fans.
The result was an easy-to-use communication portal for the hilarious performer and a new brand that her fanbase could identify with her storied career.
