Jennifer De Leonardis

As an art director, I love a challenge; design layout and event branding are my wheelhouse. As an outdoor lover, landscape provides that same challenge. Nature is the client, and my goal is to leave a minimal footprint with maximum impact while making improvements along the way for all to enjoy.

Working in the creative field for over 25 years presents similar goals and challenges; create inviting spaces with event branding while using new and existing elements within a client’s budget. Navigating these parameters takes finesse, patience and creativity … qualities that allow me to meet and exceed expectations while growing relationships.

Throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to work with the NCAA on multiple events including the Men’s Final Four®, the Women’s Final Four®, the Women’s College World Series® and the NCAA® Convention. USA Swimming, IUPUI, the Big Ten and the Indiana Pacers have also been also impacted through the creative work our team at Section 127 delivers. I am proud to be on a team of talented creatives whose work enhances the city and brings events to the national level.

Growing up in a military family set into motion an affinity for travel. Making my way to Indiana took its course from Florida, to Virginia, to the Republic of Panama, to North Carolina. Utah and Idaho completed the journey, and for the last 13 years, I gladly call Hamilton County home, where my husband and I raise our daughters, bees and butterflies.
