Gina Leone


Trained as a graphic designer, Gina’s skills and interests span across print and web design, photography, video, qualitative research, and marketing — so she contributes to just about every active project in some way. She is passionate about work that challenges her and teaches her something new.

Hailing from the Buckeye state (O-H…I-O!), Gina moved to Chicago to pursue her career at Jell after graduating from Kent State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication Design with a minor in Marketing. Her previous gigs include customer relations, environmental design, event marketing, and most recently, art direction for a magazine.

Gina’s a firm believer in the importance of making lists (and checking them twice), drinking water, and finding purpose in everyday life. She loves food and everything that entails. She’s happiest when breaking ground on a new identity design, testing her skills in the kitchen, and exploring all Chicago has to offer.
