About Me

I live in Boston and am the owner and designer behind Jennifer Hill Art + Design, Map Ink, as well as the founder of Run Ink. After graduating from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, I started my design journey working for the high-end beauty company, Fresh. I then went on to start JHill Design, where I produced creative branding, marketing, and surface design for international beauty, retail, and restaurant brands.

In 2005, I started designing, licensing, and selling my travel-inspired wall decor through my own e-commerce site as well as through brands such as Art.com, Fab.com, and West Elm. My Map Ink designs were featured in Apartment Therapy, Design*Sponge, The New York Times, How Magazine, and more. My pieces were named a “Top Gift Under $50” in Real Simple’s popular holiday gift-guide issue in 2015.

In 2015, I began personalizing my travel prints for marathon runners, and shortly thereafter Run Ink was born. Run Ink went on to partner with The Chicago Marathon and to be featured in publications such as Runner's World and Women's Health. I sold Run Ink in 2021 and can't wait to see where the brand goes from there.

Today, I continue to offer marketing and design for entrepreneurs, e-commerce brands, artists, and makers through Jennifer Hill Art + Design, and to design and sell my travel wall-decor via Map Ink.
