Nice to meet you.
I'm a multidisciplinary creative from Northern NSW, currently residing between Byron Bay and Brisbane, AU.
I'm a Designer, Photographer, Illustrator, Writer, Hand Letterer, and Film Maker, though most of my time is spent designing apps and websites, branding campaigns and marketing collateral at a digital design house named Rexlabs, and (formerly Josephmark - wwww.josephmark.com.au) where I specialise in UX/UI, Visual Strategy, and Content.
I've always had an interest in visual communication as another medium of thought and expression, and so Design was almost a natural transition for me.
With a background in Psychology, Writing, and Photography, I transitioned into the Creative Industries, finding that my previous studies in visual media complemented a newfound curiosity in design. I graduated from Shillington College of Design and settled into a studio not long after, where I was able to apply my diverse background into specialist products; from art direction and visual strategy to smaller micro-interactions in content and UI, or onboarding illustrations.
My process is true to who I am as a creative; expressive and explorative, innovative and insightful and I continue to develop this through my experiences and collaborations, and often, conversations.
I have an unparalleled love of Branding, and I continue to practice freelance Wedding and Event photography through a self-founded business named Lover, Lover, (loverloverstudios.com) while I work Monday to Friday in Studio, and Freelance (Design, Photography, or more often - both) working alongside local brands and initiatives - these projects are most often what you'll see on my website.

While I'm alot of things, it means that I can move through your product journey with you; from concept, to company.
