WhyCo. is the design portfolio of Kansas City artist & graphic designer, Jared Green.

Born and raised in Kansas City, I’ve always had a passion for art and design. Starting my art career as an oil painter, I quickly realized that the digital world was the way of the future. I switched gears and focused on graphic design. My passion ever since has been developing brands and using my traditional talents to incorporate into designs.

I’ve worked both as an in-house designer for a large corporation, at an agency and as a freelancer.

The agency environment taught me to juggle multiple clients and to work fast and efficiently. Working in-house, I’ve learned to follow brand guidelines and to be creative, while still maintaining consistency. Lastly, freelancing has strengthened my communication skills with clients and developed my independent problem solving abilities. My combined learnings from these three worlds has given me the experience and confidence to work with amazing clients.

I still draw and paint when there’s time, and when I’m not designing, you’ll find me on a tennis court. If you’re interested in working together or just want to say hi, I’d love to hear from you.
