I'm Josh, a designer + art director who embraces collaborative, inclusive approaches to storytelling.
My practice is focused on typography, print, packaging, and brand identity for CPG and D2C retail companies. I have experience in academic, corporate, and freelance design environments leading creative teams and managing diverse campaigns and projects for brands such as Rupaul's Drag Race, 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters, Lucky's Doughnuts, and more.
I currently reside in Vancouver, BC, open to new design opportunities, including those abroad that require relocation.
