FEATURING: Zenware Designs
Posted by: JUDY In: Featured
Zenware Designs is a small little graphic design company, started by Jennifer Ware so that she could stay home with her children while they were little. She specializes in children’s and infant artwork, and also likes to produce web and print designs from time to time. We sat down with Jennifer to learn more about her as a designer and as a person.
MyGrafico: How did you get started in the world of illustration?
Jennifer: I’ve wanted to be an artist since I could hold a crayon, and earned my degree in Graphic Design. I was fortunate enough to work for companies that allowed me time to develop my skills and create fun artwork for practical use. When I had my first little one, I began working from home, and illustration was what still keeps the lights on at the Ware house.
MyGrafico: What do you enjoy the most about working as an illustrator?
Jennifer: Seeing the things my children love, and bringing them to life. Then the look on their face after they see it – that’s what it’s all about.
MyGrafico: Which one of your MYGRAFICO products do you like the most and why?
Jennifer: Right now, my favorite is a toss up between the & Princesses. My son is so into pirates (we have sword fights all day long), and my daughter is the sweetest princess ever.
MyGrafico: What’s next for you? Are there other types of products that you’d like to specialize in?
MyGrafico: What do you do on your spare time, outside of digital illustration?
Jennifer: Spare time? Hmmm….I love to play with our kiddos. I completely enjoy becoming a child again through their eyes. It’s absolutely wonderful. I’ll unplug all of my computers every now & then to just enjoy them while they’re little.
