From the New York Times to Vogue, Jessica Trent and Trent PR are an established and highly trusted go-to source for a finely curated selection of intelligent, interesting, and newsworthy clients and projects.
A Virginia native born of two artists, Trent graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BFA in Communication Arts and a concentration in Marketing. Trent possesses a unique balance of right and left-brain: an aesthetic appreciation of creativity and design while helping her clients achieve tangible and profitable results for their long-term success.
With formal schooling and over a decade of experience in-house with brands, as well as holding the position as the West Coast director of a New York-based PR firm, Jessica Trent founded her business in 2008 in Los Angeles. Her collective experiences as well as encouragement from designers, artists, and press fueled the desire to create her own fair and idealistic company.
Clients are not lost in the shuffle and turned over to inexperienced interns as is often the case with large firms. Trent chooses to work only with a realistically manageable and complimentary roster of clients that consist of artists, designers, brands, galleries, museums, and non-profits.
Trent only works with projects and clients she feels a true connection to and affinity for—those who fall in line with a passion for art, design, environmental awareness, culture, philanthropy, good graces and long-term success.
In the past few years Jessica Trent has worked on numerous projects with artists and institutions from development and fundraising, marketing and business plans, to VIP events, programming, project and event production, and public relations including:
