RESUME

Hi there, I'm Josh.

I am a deep thinking and humble maker of design, video, and art, with a knack for storytelling and a love for the fine details of things. I am very self-motivated and believe that no matter what you do, you should do it excellently. Luckily I get to do something I love.

Effective UI • User Experience Designer • June 2015-Oct 2017

I worked with a team of immensely talented folks to dream up and build things that improved people’s lives through better experiences. We embraced digital complexity through a measurable, human-centered design approach—and had a bit of fun while doing so! Because what is life if you can't keep it light.

We crafted identities, websites, video and more for a variety of companies large and small. I was responsible for keeping in communication with the clients throughout the design process and for the visual and creative direction of very project that came to us.

The creative director and I collaborated as a team to complete projects. I solved perplexing problems and continuously completed projects before their deadlines. An app we redesigned climbed to #1 in Sports Apps in the Apple Store in the Summer of 2013.
