Jen Jeavons is a Brisbane-based digital designer, Creative Director, entrepreneur and singer/songwriter – so probably not the best person to challenge at a drunken karaoke night.
Having travelled the world with her award-winning band, Aneiki, Jen refocused her creativity, setting up shop in Brisbane in 2006 to launch her digital studio, Pixel Palace. Thanks to hard work, some great briefs and clients who want something out side the box for their online presence, the company has grown exponentially in the last 12 months courtesy of clients such as RSPCA, Peppermint Magazine and now, of course Curvy.
Whilst developing her creative heart in Aneiki, Jen wrote and performed the most played Australian song on radio in 2002 (“Pleased To Meet You”) and later that year was awarded APRA’s ‘Break Though Songwriter of the Year’). But it’s design where she found her calling and, with her Brisbane based team, now creates awesome, innovative websites that truly make a difference for their clients – ‘art with impact’ in the digital space.
Not one to sit on her laurels, in 2014 Jen and her husband Ryadan founded an artisan coffee start-up,“ Coffee Beans Delivered”. Combining their love for coffee, design and their background in building eCommerce sites, they presented a great platform to deliver quality boutique roasted coffee beans with a cool edge to the market and is fast becoming one of the leading online coffee stores in Australia.
