My dad and baby Amber, somewhere in Charlotte in the late 80s. #throwback #familyovereverything

Twenty-something years ago in Charlotte, my parents named me Amber Jinae.

 In 2017, City First selected me for their inaugural 35 Under 35 among Washington, DC's young professionals in media, philanthropy, and government.

My childhood latched onto music and literature. My adolescence welcomed and nurtured a love of history and culture — especially that of my ancestors and elders. Ambition came naturally, but my parents equipped me with lessons and skills — resilience being one of the biggest — that paired nicely with my internal drive. From my mother, I learned resourcefulness and the importance of education. From my father, I learned diligence and how to carve my own path.

Today, I'm a brand designer, marketing strategist, and entrepreneur from the DMV.

I launched my first business, Amber Jinae PR, while in undergrad at the University of Maryland. After graduation I landed full-time marketing and design jobs in various industries — from higher education to commercial real estate and now nonprofits/philanthropy — while nurturing my entrepreneurial spirit on the side. My passions for progressive, contemporary design, advocacy, and local entrepreneurship have attracted a rich and diverse community client base for my businesses.

My mission is to demonstrate the significance of unforgettable first impressions, impeccable presentations and deliberated strategy in identity expression and representation. I value integrity, passion, goodness and ambition. I want to use my loves to help others make a statement about theirs. I’m passionate about everything from logos and websites to marketing and/or publicity campaigns and everything in between. I enjoy working with people as dedicated to their work as I am to mine. If this sounds like you, let's talk!
