Darrin Grandmason
Founder and CEO
Darrin Grandmason has been a successful entrepreneur and genetic artist since 2004. His undergraduate education includes pre-medical and pharmacology studies at Eastern Michigan University. Since his education, Darrin has founded DNA Artistry, the first company to offer genetic art, and has led to success with two other companies offering personalized genetic artwork for enthusiasts across the country.
Dubbed the 'founding father of genetic art' by Newsweek, Darrin launched In Our Genes (IOG), which creates apparel featuring the genetic fingerprint of diseases, in 2008. He is currently working to create the world's first affordable, wearable genetic art through DNA on a SHIRT. As CEO and Founder of DNA on a SHIRT, he has pioneered new and exciting ways to increase awareness of endangered species with zoological prints and T-shirts.

That why's Darrin Grandmason watches his interns like a hawk.
"I have to maintain a vigilant watch to make sure that something my interns are doing isn't violating someone else's IP," says Grandmason, the owner and chief executive of DNA on a Shirt, a company, based in Phoenix, Ariz. that creates T-shirts and customized artwork based on people's DNA.
Just last month, an intern -- he has several long-term ones, some of whom are musicians -- found a music track on a news aggregator site, and presented it to Grandmason, who immediately asked whether the music was free of a copyright. More scrutiny on the part of the intern, in the presence of his boss, revealed the music had an owner. The intern's reaction was incredulity because his friends apparently used other people's IP as a matter of course.
"There is a gray area, even among educated individuals who are trained in these matters," says Grandmason. "They believe, because digital material is 'out there,' that it's okay to 'borrow it.'"
Grandmason, who has terminated one intern for poor IP diligence, is acutely aware that business owners can't be too careful.
For Grandmason and his interns, using Traklight regularly -- to the tune of about a $50 subscription annually -- provides peace of mind.
"You have to develop a tight set of parameters," he says, noting that many interns believe a lot of IP is up for grabs.
DNA Artistry - The art of science, 8 Sept 2008 [cached]
"I came up with the idea from taking advanced microbiology classes," says Darrin Grandmason, creator of DNA Artistry."I always thought that just my DNA alone would be a really cool art media.I was talking with a scientist over dinner one night, and we both thought it would be a good idea to re-create people's DNA in an art format."
Grandmason developed his idea for well over a year, starting in 2004."From looking at DNA tests, each one was remarkably individual," Grandmason says.
"It's the ideal gift for the person who has everything," Grandmason says.
Fashion News - Emerging Company To Make Awareness Fashionable Through Genetic Art, 26 Oct 2010 [cached]
SCIENCE: Dubbed the founding father of genetic art by Newsweek magazine, In Our Genes founder Darrin Grandmason idealized a product that puts substance behind style. IOG utilizes stylish apparel and prints the genetic footprint of a specific disease on a stylish piece of apparel.
The concept behind the ( ) genetic art came about when Grandmason, a microbiology student, ran his dogâEUR s DNA through a simple cheek swab and created an abstract portrait. After friends and family started asking questions, Grandmason had the idea that the concept could help create awareness and start a conversation.
FASHION: IOG has designed a signature clothing line that will be a daily reminder for those affected. Grandmason considers the line a âEURœpermanent get well cardâEUR.
Darrin Grandmason is the founder of In Our Genes and created the concept after taking an advanced microbiology course. Grandmason started the company DNA Artistry, which pioneered genetic imaging and was the first to offer this type of art.

Darrin Grandmason, CEO and founder of In Our Genes - and a former Biology student - got the idea for the clothing line after he created a series of wall hangings based on the DNA of his dog, his friends’ dogs and people.
Grandmason said that by using clothing design prints derived from DNA disease markers, patients and others could better understand that diseases often have genetic origins.
“Why don’t we put a genetic face on disease? When you look at this print, you know it means breast cancer,†said Grandmason, displaying the first of 20 designs his company plans to sell, each displaying the genetic fingerprint of the top diseases that afflict humanity. “People need to know that their genes will play a role in how they fight, and how they win, any health battle.â€
Grandmason said he decided to donate to TGen because of the variety of conditions they research, including diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and many types of cancer.
While the clothing is designed for patients, anyone might wear it, Grandmason said, adding that he hopes the clothing will stimulate not only an understanding about the role of genetics in disease, but provoke conversations among patients, their doctors and others.
