Today we’d like to introduce you to Jared Vinson.
Hi Jared, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Since a child, I always had an interest in anything artistic from drawing to painting and pottery. I took a graphic design class in high school and found joy in that but after graduating I didn’t think much of it. In 2017 I was doing event promotion and had to purchase graphics multiple times a week which was really adding up so I started to teach myself to do logo designs and flyers. In 2018 my wife invested in my business by sending me to take a class with a very well renowned graphic designer and the business has been excelling ever since. In 2022 I made the step to leave a day job and put all focus on my business in many ways I believe that my business has excelled since that decision.
I’m a firm believer that I got here due to hard work and support from my customers and family. A side gig off my phone just to save money has now expanded into a full-time business because I wasn’t scared to ask for help and Knowledge from other professionals in this space.
We now offer Logo designs, Flyers, Websites, T-Shirt printing, Banners, Motion graphics, Branding content, social media management and so much more.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It’s definitely been a process I’ll say. Running a business is hard in any sense there are good days and there are bad days where you contemplate if this is the right path. One of the bigger challenges was running a business while working 40+ hrs. at a day job while pursuing my own business goals it was tough.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a graphic designer specializing in digital marketing. We offer Logos, Flyers, Business Cards, Websites, Printing services, T-Shirt printing, Content creation, Motion graphics, social media management, and much more.
I’d say at the moment we are most known for logo designs and flyer designs. That’s where we started and what has been the big push since the beginning.
I’m most proud of how far the business has come from 2017 to the present day. I’m very proud of the résumé we have as far as customers over the past couple of years. There are some really well-renowned businesses we have had the opportunity to work with such as Apopka High school PTSA, WillieBoy’s BBQ, The Sisaundra Show, Southside Church of Chris, and The Sprinkle Factory, and many others.
What makes you happy?
I love seeing an idea/drawing come to life through graphic design. Knowing that something I designed is helping a customer’s business expand, generate more sales and gain a larger presence really makes me happy.
