Jalene Hernández-Cabrijan

Owner & Creative Director

Hi, I’m Jalene (pronounced Jay-leen) and this is my sweet lil’ creative services agency, La Sirena Design.

To put it simply, I’m a graphic designer.

But what I’m really known for is my 20+ years of experience, creativity, design know-how, technical savviness, thoughtful strategy and resourcefulness to easily swim through a wide variety of creative projects from concept to completion.

I especially love working with small businesses that value community and enrich people’s lives. Either in a small everyday way (like the joy from the perfect pair of earrings) or in a big life-changing way (like access to clean drinking water).

Besides creating knock-out designs, I help get marketing and design projects under control. Because I want to help free up your time, eliminate frustration, and prevent burnout so you can focus on doing YOUR best work.

“Jalene has a flare that’s hard to put into words. She can beautify and energize anything. She can take explicit, detailed direction and follow the plan well; she can also take a vague and nebulous idea and develop it into something tangible. Jalene has a gift, and she finds wonderful ways to apply herself in so many mediums.”

Coquina Deger
Chief of Staff at Bastyr University

“Besides her excellent design skills she has an in depth knowledge of programs and processes (often teaching our team a new trick or two) and she is super easy to work with. I highly recommend her!”

Karen Predmore

“Hands down, you are one of the best graphic designers I’ve ever worked with.
You are an amazing person to have on one’s team.”
