Meet J9


Chief Creative Counsel

@xoj9 Creative.

Jeannine’s the go-to secret weapon for big and small businesses who crave outstanding direction and visual redesign with heart.

Jeannine cut her teeth as a creative director for ad agencies and the entertainment industry including HBO, TBWA Chiat/Day, and Grey Entertainment where she helped promote and launch such hit shows as Tracey Ullman, Larry Sanders, and DreamOn on HBO and Once and Again and The Drew Carey Show on ABC.

She later took the entrepreneurial leap and co-created The Treehouse Social Club, an innovative place for families with young children to experience indoor play, arts and crafts, as well as a workshop space for events sponsored by major brands ranging from Gerber to Little Tykes and Pampers. 

Design, movies, lobster & the color purple makes me happy.

In 2010 Jeannine launched her own company xoj9Creative where she provides exceptional creative direction as well as smart and beautiful visual brand solutions for big and small businesses with heart and entrepreneurs with a big message.
