We believe the best design lives in the uneasy place at the edge of our comfort zone, that collaboration is our best ally and we champion personal relationships. We stay passionate about our work because we are selective with our projects. Our art lineage informs how we assemble distinctive spaces for luxury residential and boutique hospitality. We are advocates of high standards and committed to flawless client service.

Jen Talbot

Principal, Creative Director

JTD was formed in 2016 by Jen Talbot. An internationally recognized, multidisciplinary American designer establishing a reputation for innovation and ingenuity, where she actively takes notes from her installation art practice. Jen created conceptual narratives through ephemeral, performance-based installation art, consistently utilizing the human form as a part of the sculpture.

With this rich creative lineage, Talbot sees each space compressed like a work of art and carefully crafts a visual composition into each space. Promulgating innovation on empty spaces, not unlike an empty page, Talbot often uses color or the absence of color, to function as a visual catalyst. Talbot’s genesis is taking the familiar, the everyday, and the ordinary, and removing it from the veil of provincial domesticity through creating spatial narratives.

Jen has 20 years experience in the hospitality industry and 8 years in product design. And in 2021, Jen launched her own product line. Studio Line, a collection of artisan fabrics, wallpaper, select furnishings, and accessories that draw from Jen’s rich past experiences as sculptor, installation artist, and product designer.

The deep network of artists, artisans, vintage merchants, collaborators and experts at their craft make up a support network critical to the success of our work.
