Jared is an absolutely wonderful design partner and an enormously important presence on the team. I attribute a lot of the successes this half to his vision and work ethic.
Jared does a lot to drive clarity on the team and shape our vision and priorities. I always learn a lot from him, and he sets a high quality bar for people around him to follow.
I'm consistently impressed at the speed Jared produces ideas, often working in parallel to research when ideas come to him, such that he often has ideas ready to go when the team is just starting to think about them.
Jared's superpower is in translating sometimes ambiguous or complex problems into not just one, but many potential solutions, that are clear and easy to discuss as a team.
The interfaces that Jared creates are always top notch. Same goes for his slide presentations. Honestly, he makes everybody look better just by being on their team.
Jared brings a strong domain expertise and knowledge of the broader industry to the team. He is consistently tuned in to research, and knows our clients' attitudes and behaviors very, very well.
