Originally trained as a designer, Jarren spent many years working in the design industry for a number of creative agencies in Queensland, Australia. At the end of 2010, he left his job as a designer to join in the fight against the environmental crisis and founded a Greenpeace activist team in his home city of Brisbane. At around the same time, he also became involved in a number of other social and environmental change organizations and worked on countless campaigns. As Jarren noticed a strong need for more effective campaigning materials in these social movements, he founded Design Good Design Studio, to aid the efforts of the associated organizations. Since then, he has designed brands, campaign materials, and advertising campaigns for a wide range of them. e.g., 350.org, Amnesty International, Australian Conservation Foundation, Australian Education Union, Australian Marine Conservation Society, Australian Progress, Australian Youth Climate Coalition, Change.org, The Climate Reality Project, Environment Victoria, Farmers for Climate Action, Friends of the Earth, GetUp!, Greenpeace, The Greens, Market Forces, Nature Conservation Council of NSW, Oxfam, Queensland Conservation Council, RE-Alliance (f.k.a. Australian Wind Alliance), Solar Citizens, The Sunrise Project, United Voice, WWF, etc. His design work has received a commendation from the Design Institute of Australia in the Queensland Design Awards and was exhibited in the Queensland Art Gallery. It has also been featured in publications such as Desktop (magazine), Lino (magazine), Design Montage (online magazine), Wastepaper (a book series created by employees of the design studio Inkahoots), and on many social media channels, including those of the culture-jamming magazine Adbusters. He has also delivered presentations of his design work while discussing how graphic design and branding can be used to help create social and environmental change. While continuing this work, Jarren is now studying a Bachelor of Psychological Science at the University of Queensland where he has received commendations for academic excellence. He is currently working on a social psychology study about perceptions of allyship in social change, with lecturer and researcher Dr. Michael Thai.
