It’s no secret that set design and exhibit production is typically a male dominated industry, but females are increasingly breaking that mold and we love it!
Mother’s Day last week got us thinking about Tractor Vision’s amazing female workforce. To kick off the week, we want to take a moment to highlight our senior project manager, our very own mother hen of the shop, design maven and construction guru, Jenna Kieselbach!
Jenna joined our team over 5 years ago and has transcended boundaries set by this industry. While prejudice still exists externally, we hope that we can continue to play our part to integrate amazing women in this industry and highlight their accomplishments until that prejudice is no more!
Jenna has played an integral part in Tractor Vision’s growth from a small shop with a crew of 10 with a handsaw some 15 years ago to a 15,000 square foot shop that’s running crews from LA to NYC 3659 days a year.
Here’s a look at some of Jenna’s work in 2019 so far:
Speaking of keeping this crew charged! Jenna managed the construction and design of this Cafe Bustelo Pop Up Shop in Santa Monica… “TGIC” (Caffeine)
Ever feel like you’re playing a game of cat and mouse with your budgets? One of the many reasons we love Jenna is because she acts as a partner to our clients rather than a vendor, genuinely caring about each detail and using her knowledge of material used to bring visions to life. There’s a lot of people that can design a rad set, but it takes experience and knowledge of materials and application methods to create a vision without blowing a budget. #kudos
Ok, so we aren’t the set shop with the suite, tie, khakis and stuffy conference room. At Tractor Vision, we LOVE to rock out with bold colors and unique style! Jenna is the queen bee of bold and we’re proud to see her unique flavor unfold in designs and builds like this culturally savvy and international inspiring set for Buchanans.
