Skills (7)

Joel in a few words

California-born and raised, Paris-based designer and creative director with experience creating brands and digital products from concept to roll-out and beyond.

Currently looking for interesting projects where I can add value – especially within the Paris region.

I'm passionate about exploring and analysing ideas surrounding data decentralisation, digital identity, Web3 (the blockchain side, rather than the commerce), humanising technology, Green / Climate projects, making products usable and beautiful, type / typeface design, art history, challenging "data-driven everything," and life before computers (not in any order).

Previous Clients / Employers include: VICE Media Group, World Economic Forum / Unilever, Burberry, Bose, Intel, Condé Nast Britain (Vogue/GQ/Wired), Faction Skis and Canada Goose.
