I’m Joey and I’m on a mission to learn how to build better brands.

Having graduated from University in 2016, fully focused on developing my skills within brand identity and graphic design as a whole. I set out on a mission to experience everything the industry has to offer: ‘Studio Life’, ‘The Freelance Dream’ and ‘In House Madness’.

I’m currently on the third stage of that, building a great US brand and visuals for the travel-tech company FlixMobility. When I’m not behind a screen, you’ll find me exploring new cities and places, chilling in my local cafe with a book or down in the gym (burning off the food I just ate).

The values that drive me

Take off the mask 🤡

No bullshit, just be yourself. I try to emulate this attitude within my branding work, expressing a brands core values through great, creative design work.

Bring the fire 🔥

It takes a great deal of passion and hard work to set your creativity alight. I bring all of my passion for the projects I tackle unless I’ve yet to have coffee then, please don’t talk to me.

Lend a helping hand 🖐

Collaboration and co-operation are two skills that I’m proud to have. Helping a friend, colleague or even a client out can a long way, I never underestimate the value of being friendly and helpful.

Let the good times roll 🥁

What’s that saying? “all work and no play makes Joey a dull boy”. I consider myself truly lucky to be able to call what I do, my work, I have so much fun doing it!
