SHERIDAN — You’ve likely seen Jenae Neeson’s work all around Sheridan. Her name isn’t on it but her style can be seen all over town.
The 40-year-old has designed a number of marketing campaigns in the area including work for Sheridan Memorial Hospital, The Mint Bar, Fly Sheridan, Sheridan Community Land Trust, The Brinton Museum, Center for a Vital Community and the Sheridan WYO Rodeo , among others.
Neeson owns her own creative company that brings both deeply personal and richly branded stories to life through raw, honest photography and strategic design.
Beyond her local work, though, Neeson’s reach goes far beyond Sheridan County’s borders. She has also done work for national clients from California, Maryland, Nebraska and Chicago.
The best part? She’s local. Neeson was born at the base of the Bighorn Mountains and went to school in Big Horn.
After high school, she wandered the country for 17 years — living in Bozeman, Montana; Omaha, Nebraska; Chicago; and Los Angeles.
When she started her own business and realized she could work from anywhere, she moved back to Sheridan, where much of her family also lives.
Since returning home, Neeson has gotten involved with the Center for a Vital Community, the Sheridan Photography Association, INSTAMEETS, the Sheridan Community Land Trust and more.
She also plays in multiple bands — including the InstaGators — and recently started a new venture that includes a photobooth enclosed in a blue van named the Vanderbooth.
“I’ve watched the Sheridan community really grow into something that I want to be involved with,” Neeson said.
“The outdoors and art and music are all the things that get me excited and feed my soul,” Neeson continued. “I like to think that by jumping in, contributing and bringing new ideas to the table, I’m only helping propel mine and the community’s excitement for these areas.”
Neeson was recently accepted as a client at the Wyoming Technology Business Center.
John Dick runs that business incubator and said he looks forward to continuing work with Neeson.
“I would be hard pressed to think of a more creative, caring and all around awesome person,” Dick said. “There are not many people in Wyoming with her experience and talent in design — I’m excited to watch the growth of her boutique design firm. And…Vanderbooth!”
