Jarad Johnson

President

Jarad helped found Mostly Serious after cutting his teeth at boutique firms, startups, and as an interactive consultant for some of the largest agencies in the US. His original vision for Mostly Serious helps drive us today: to build a culture-driven agency that met deadlines, was easy to work with, earned consistent results for clients, and could tackle almost any project.

A multi-talented creative, Jarad has a strong history of crafting interactive projects, software applications, and online marketing campaigns. His abilities transcend interactive, and he has previously served as project manager, writer, and office coffee maker. He was also the founding organizer of Springfield Creatives—a community-led organization that aims to better the lives of area creative professionals—and serves on the advisory board for an urban garden project, Springfield Community Gardens.

Jarad's work is regularly featured in design books, magazines, and online galleries including Smashing Magazine and Awwwards. In 2014, he earned the nod as one of Springfield’s brightest young minds, showcased in the 417 Magazine's 20 Under 30 issue.
