Jesse Rand

Creative Director, ca. '11

For whatever reasons, Ray, call it... fate, call it luck, call it karma, I believe everything happens for a reason.

Dr. Peter Venkman

Jesse’s experience found him working in Boston’s mobile start-up industry where he functioned as a UI designer and graphic artist. He then moved into the world of web design and development and has produced a vast portfolio of interactive websites. Functioning as both a print designer and primary web developer, Jesse manages the production of all major design/development projects at Vital. He holds a BFA from Plymouth State University, with a concentration in graphic design.

Jesse loves horror movies, metal, illustrating (sometimes), and, for whatever reason, he’s been very into Star Wars lately. “I blame my kids and Disney+,” Jesse said.

A brief history at Vital
Joined as a Graphic Designer
Was the only fulltime designer for about a year, maybe more?
Developed things too
Launched our "new" website. It was responsive in 2012 so it was surprisingly cool for the time. Vital found out I can code. So I built a bunch of our sites.
Named Creative Director
We had a design team by now and I was helping hire them and manage the team.
Life and Growth
Vital is muuuuch bigger and more complex. So is life with 2 kids. So I'm busy as ever but still doing new things everyday.
Random Bits
  1. Likely have the most pets in the office, and am the least excited about it.
  2. Can usually tell you the year most any movie you can think of was made thanks to my years working at Blockbuster Video (RIP).
  3. First ever concert was Creed. And I liked it.
