About Jen


Jennifer Gauerke

Jen grew up in Connecticut, went to Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY, interned in New York City then moved to Colorado after falling in love with the mountains while on a snowboard trip to Steamboat.

Jen lives in Northwest Denver with her fly fishing husband, two fantastic kids, a busy hive of bees, an inquisitive kitten and the meanest cat you’ll ever meet.

I am always extremely satisfied with the results I get from working with SGD. Jen is very personable, which is important in terms of discussing ideas and accomplishing an amazing end result. I know I can always trust her to get the job done in a quick, creative manor at a reasonable cost.

I have used SGD several times over the last six years for graphic design for my architecture firm. I highly recommend Jen--she is creative, reasonably priced, and seems to have an intuitive sense about what you want and need.
