Every great design begins with an even better story." -- Lorinda Mamo, designer

Hello, I'm Jared Tohlen (toe-lean), a designer from Lee’s Summit, MO.

I’m a geeky creative who values intentionality, practicality, and community. I lead teams, engage with clients, and design with empathy.

Currently I'm a Senior Art Director for ArtSpeak Creative. I also team up with creative clients through my business, Tohlen Creative Company. Sometimes I build things out of wood, too (you can even buy some of it). You can contact me through this site if you'd like. Or you can find me online at the places below.

I've designed some stuff

Fifteen years along in my design career and I’ve got a few things to show for it.

Go Mega, Join the League

Mega League is a community of geeky creatives looking to grow together.

We all enjoy sharing what we're excited and learning about with folks who are just as into it. So I started a community... nay, a League of designers, geeks, creators, and more to gather and grow in our shared interests together. And I called it Mega League.
