Hello Human,
was founded by Jenny Nguyen.



Jenny is a seasoned communicator who brings a unique international perspective having lived and worked in New York City, Amsterdam, London, Milan, Melbourne and Sydney.

She founded Hello Human after realizing there was a disconnect in the PR industry’s pricing and service model, ultimately excluding independent designers from accessing crucial publicity services, and getting the share of voice that they deserved. She saw an opportunity to modernize the PR agency business model and tailor the PR process to work more efficiently for small businesses, making Hello Human’s high-end publicity services accessible to independent creators.

Jenny has worked primarily in the cultural and design sector for clients and collaborators including Airbnb, Art for Amnesty, Bottega Veneta, Domino Magazine, Frame Publishers, Kengo Kuma, Ladies & Gentlemen Studio, Robert Indiana, Ryuichi Sakamoto’s More Trees, Tantuvi, teNeues, The Philip Johnson Glass House, The Seaport District, Vogue Living, Yayoi Kusama and more.

She is passionate about creativity, design and the people behind it.
