Jennifer Hoffman, Founder


In 2010 I created ecohaven project, which is now part of haad studio.  As a designer + mixed media artist, I wanted to create a forum for multi-disciplinary collaboration. My intention is to generate meaningful concepts that create innovative, beautiful + inspiring solutions for various types of platforms resulting in a diverse body of projects. Collaborating with interesting + talented people is fun + doing meaningful work is what it’s all about. I hope you enjoy our collaborations!

Thank you!
