Essential Eight with Design Creative and Business Owner Jon McGrath

Jon McGrath, SOMO Village MemberJon is a native Chicagoan who relocated to Sonoma County in 2020. Along with his wife Jessie, he owns Advocate Creative, a branding and design agency for nonprofits and foundations. Jon is grateful for the opportunity to tell the stories of organizations bringing positive change to the world and grow their support.
Design isn’t the only art form Jon appreciates. When he’s not designing, you can find him enjoying the culinary arts by visiting a new restaurant or trying a new recipe.
From an essential food to an essential video, we sat down with Jon to learn about what he can’t live without—here’s what he told us.
