The Last Word—Jared Granger

Jared Granger
Graphic Designer for idgroup, Consulting & Creative

What is your chief characteristic?
Passion

What do you appreciate most about your friends?
The understanding that life is not about always having to see each other, because let’s be honest—sometimes we’re too busy to have a social life. All it takes is the time for a phone call to catch up.

Who is your favorite hero in fiction?
I don’t really have one, but my non-fiction hero is my great grandfather—a man of few words who touched the lives of so many. I never had the opportunity to meet him.

Who is your favorite heroine in fiction?
Again, I don’t really have one either, but my non-fiction heroines are my mother, grandmother and wife. Without these people in my life, who knows where I would be today. Thank you for all the support and unconditional love.

What is the best thing you have ever won?
I recently found out that some of my work is being published in a “best of” logo book.

What did your mother always tell you?
That I could do anything I wanted to do.

What is the worst idea you’ve ever had?
A few years ago, I had the opportunity to move to Vancouver for a year. It would have been a great opportunity to experience such a different culture and environment, but who knows where I would have been today.

What is your favorite food?
It’s hard to narrow that down. I do love brinner (breakfast for dinner)!

Which talent would you most like to have?
To possess the ability to write. (Ironically, that sentence is a fragment.)

What movie do you love to watch repeatedly?
“Helvetica,” a documentary by Gary Hustwit

What was your most embarrassing moment?
I think I have too many to just list one.

What TV show is your guilty pleasure?
“30 Rock” and “The Office”

What is the last book you read?
“LogoDesignLove” by David Airey

What is your theme song?
“Rubber Duckie” by The Muppets
