Jen Rolston is the founder of Eden Design, a mission-based creative agency started in 2000. A West Virginia native and graduate of Shepherd University’s BFA program, Jen has primarily worked with small businesses, non-profits, and arts organizations using her expertise to help clients achieve visions that often nurture communities, improve local economies, and foster anti-racist/anti-oppression practices.
Jen started Eden Design in response to what she felt was an immense need for affordable, professional design for the non-profit sector in the Eastern Panhandle of WV and surrounding areas. Building on the belief that “to change the world you must first change your part in it,” Eden Design has blossomed into a successful design, marketing, and consulting firm. Having lived in the area for over twenty years, Jen has also become a great resource of contacts and information for numerous start-up businesses.
Clients range from thriving mom-based businesses to agriculture development, arts and theater, boutique hotels, community assistance organizations, doctors, attorneys, restaurants, professional and personal coaches, consultants . . . the list is ever growing. Eden Design also provides pro-bono graphic services to numerous charities throughout the year and has partnered with Shepherd University providing internships to graphic design students.
She lives in Jefferson County with her husband Patrick Shunney, a restoration contractor and timber framer. Jen serves on the Board of the Eastern West Virginia Community Foundation, is a member of the Jefferson County NAACP, teaches meditation and yoga through morningdharma.com and loves to go off-grid in the WV mountains — hiking and trail running followed by delicious local food, cold IPAs, and lively conversation.
