Hello,

_I’m josh, (Joshua if we’re being formal) and I’m what they call a ‘Creative’. Ya know, logos, colours, letters and stuff. But it encompasses so much more that it becomes visual problem solving. “How do i catch peoples attention, when they have so little time?”. “How do i condense my company’s ethos, history and purpose into a mark?”. Well i can help with that. I’m based in (but not limited to) Sheffield, and I work with brands of all shapes and sizes, on projects of an equally varying size. From Logos to web design. Ad campaigns to type design (and a healthy dose of print of course). If you have a project, idea, or just want a chat i’d love hear from you.

Much love

J

What do people have to say about working with me?

_Josh is someone who I hold in high regard on a personal and professional level. A talented designer, but there's a lot more to him that meets the eye. Fastidious, cool, calm, committed but above all reliable and determined. I've worked directly with him in a challenging environment and he always delivered. More recently, he was my first port of call when creating my own brand for a new venutre. Exceptionally talented and a first class human being!

_I worked with Josh for well over a year, and I loved working with him. He is able to analyze every part of the project, take it apart, and approach it creatively. He is a genius when it comes to bright ideas, and apart from his outstanding Art and Creative direction on every project, he has an amazing sense for design and what good design looks like. I definitely recommend Josh for any project, job or role, he would be a powerful asset and very fun guy to work with on any team.

_I worked with Josh for more than 2 years in Unisono agency and I definitely enjoyed it. Besides being a really good designer with strong conceptual skills, attitude and feel of design as a purposeful process, with impressive art-direction skills: solid and effective, he's a really great guy to work with. I definitely recommend Josh to any project or job within creative / graphic design / art-direction fields
