5 Minutes with… Jarred Bishop

3 months ago by

Ahead of our July 6th Adobe Creative Jam in Wellington, we grabbed a quick five minutes with Jarred Bishop from Output.


Hi Jarred, can you tell us a little bit about who you are, what your background is, and how you first got started in the industry.
Hi! I run a tiny branding and interactive studio called Output. I’ve been working in the industry for 12 years now across a variety of roles, studios, agencies and startups. I got a web design diploma back when the internet was <tables> and haven’t looked back.

What project, personal or professional, are you most proud of and why?
About 18 months ago some friends and I started Almighty, an organic juice company. Since that time I have designed almost every visual aspect to the company. Everything from the logo, packaging, collateral, signage, and website, to name a few. Prior to this project I’d predominantly worked on websites and apps. Getting out of my comfort zone really helped me evolve as a designer and let me see design in a holistic manner that can apply to every facet of a business.

What excites you the most about what you do?
I love that I get to work with all kinds of business and help them do whatever it is that they do, better.

Where do you find inspiration?
It’s usually the last place you look. Retrace your steps. I’m sure I left it around here somewhere…

Can you give us a sneak peak into your creative / design process ahead of the Adobe Creative Jam?
I work closely with my clients, so my process will adapt to fit theirs. There’s usually a research phase followed by a presentation and approval of a direction with iterative work and presentations from there on out.

Where can we see more of your work (links to websites, online portfolios etc)

And finally, where to next for you? What does the rest of 2017 hold?
I have a side project I’ve been chipping away at that I’d like to see out in the wild. I’d also like to collaborate more with other designers.
