Hello, I’m Joe!

I’m an independent Creative / Art Director and Designer.  I work mainly in branding and digital projects with a focus on image-making, motion graphics and interactive design.

I've worked in the creative industry within digital, marketing & advertising for over 15 years. I've been honoured with roles such as New Media Designer, Flash Developer, Art Director and Creative Director.

I even once did a piece of public art

I also create prints for sale and take pictures.
