Creator. Connector of people and products.
Jennifer Byrne has over 25 years experience designing both in- and out-of-house for national museums, Fortune 500 companies, and international non-profits. Having developed the National Building Museum’s overall graphic identity and subbrands that run the gamut of audiences and disciplines, she developed a love for building brands and left that in-house role in 2005 to provide the same for independent clients through her company, Live.Create.Play.LLC.
As a brand experience designer, Jen helps organizations identify and visually express their messages to increase their visibility and impact. She develops graphics in the form of overall identities; marketing materials; event invitation/signage packages; and exhibition/tradeshow design.
Honored to serve as adjunct faculty at the Corcoran College of Art and Design, Jen created and led exhibition design graduate students in a brand design wayfinding project in partnership with the DC Government that resulted in ongoing curriculum expansion of the project with the University of Maryland Architecture Department.
In 2013, she formed Little Main Street Playhouses LLC, a playhouse and educational activity product company that builds imagination and draws out individuality in children. At its core, the goals are much the same as that of the brand development work with Live.Create.Play. clients—self-discovery with the purpose of connecting ideas and people.
Designer. Generator of ideas, humor, and play.
Chris has over 25+ years of experience art directing, designing, and managing magazines that have won him numerous awards for business-to-business publications. Dreaming up unique and fun products, finding/sharing inspiration, and streamlining workflow systems are among his natural strengths. Chris supports Live.Create.Play. on an as-needed basis. His keen sense of human nature brings fresh ideas, humor, and a sense of levity to the collective workspace. He enjoys listening to music, playing guitar, and cheering on his favorite football teams and is the biggest fan around when it comes to his team of four here.
Life coach. Awakened being.
Zandra is a loyal companion with an unwavering trust with the flow of life. Her singular, personal, and very focused goal of being the food-service manager is inspirational in its own way. It’s always good to have an eternal optimist on board!
