It's me, Josh. I'm writing this in first-person for everyone's benefit.
I am currently a Senior Brand Designer at a mid-sized company in Atlanta, GA where I work on teams and on solo projects stewarding the company's portfolio of brands and brand partnerships across international markets. I lead teams of designers on print and digital projects, present work to executives and sales reps, and I am the point of contact for the direction of the corporate brand. I am also an illustrator published by Chronicle books, with a personal and freelance, illustration-focused practice.
The bulk of this website is dedicated my illustration work, but below is an abbreviated selection from my recent design and art direction portfolio. More in-depth info on these projects are available upon request.
Please get in touch with questions! firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, several of these projects are confidential, so please keep a lid on it!
