Jenna Halbert

Born and raised just over the border in Toronto, Jenna is a designer with an eye for detail, a love of brainstorming and a (sometimes unfortunately timed) nervous laugh. She is a big believer that design should have intention—that there should always be a reason behind every decision, and that “just because it looks good” is never one of them. Naturally inquisitive, she is never afraid to ask why. She is motivated by creative problem solving, and is thrilled by the challenge to solve a juicy problem with a strong and thoughtful solution.


After graduating from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communications Design, she moved to New York City to work with brands like Major League Baseball, Rimmel London, and most recently, The Knot. Through the Masters in Branding program, she hopes to learn more about how effective strategy can support and lead the creative process.


When she isn’t working, Jenna is most likely planning her next trip, sketching on any available surface, or roaming all of New York City in search of the best ice cream.


The curriculum for The Masters in Branding Program allows students to create frameworks to guide brand, design and business development, critically evaluate brand, business, marketing and design strategies and Master the intellectual link between leadership and creativity. Learn more...
