Jared is an illustrator and designer with a unique focus on the natural environment. Growing up camping and climbing mountains instilled within him a passion for the outdoors and one’s interaction with it. He studied in Cape Town, South Africa and has a background in architectural and graphic design which translates into a unique style of his own. Jared has done corporate and private work for various local and international clients and shares his work with like-minded individuals on Instagram under the handle, @mountain_lines.
Jared has been blessed with continued support from a community of like-minded people. This inspired him to take his illustrations and designs to the next level and evolve away from an individual artist-centred approach. He wanted to create a community centred around the ‘why’ of things; to create meaningful designs that convey a message, ignites discussion or invokes emotion. Products that promoted a healthy lifestyle and getting outside. Inspired by the outdoors…
The Great Break is the result. An artist owned design and supplies co. inspired by nature, collaboration and outdoor living.
