About Me

My name is Jason McGinnity. I was born in Santa Monica and grew up in Los Angeles and Vancouver, Washington.

I am a multidisciplinary designer with a background in product and transportation design. I grew up traveling, playing competitive sports, and working customer service and sales jobs. I used those experiences as a platform for learning about people, the way they interact with others, and how they rationalize the purchases that they make.

I thrive in fast-paced and competitive environments. I'm a natural leader and strive to be a catalyst for pulling interdisciplinary teams closer together inside and outside the studio to create meaningful and beautiful design solutions.

I believe people and proportion are the key ingredients to meaningful, lasting design. I love studying people and the products they use. I am quick to establish insights into user behavior and pride myself on my eye for proportion and detail.

After all, "The details are not the details. They make the design." - Charles Eames

I am extremely passionate about design and have been very fortunate to be surrounded by great designers and mentors throughout my time at various studios and at Art Center College of Design.

Outside the studio I enjoy running, cycling, hiking, traveling, restoring my 1964 Morris Cooper S, and being surrounded by great people.
