Hi, I'm Josiah Werning. I’m a multidisciplinary graphic designer & artist based in Brooklyn. I am currently a freelance senior-level designer at Elephant, and am always looking for new work — email me at josiahwerning@gmail.com and let’s make something together.
Design is how I see the world. I am endlessly curious and fascinated by the power of good design. I love to surround myself with experienced designers who can challenge me and take my work to the next level, as well as mentor younger designers to help them develop their skill. 
Although my professional experience includes advertising and design agencies, much of my personal work brings powerful branding to social movements, nonprofit organizations, and community groups to amplify voices that need to be heard. You’ll see collaborations in my portfolio with groups from the immigrant rights movement, climate justice, an anti-gun-violence media project, the UN, social justice poets from the Bronx, and more.
I was also an artist-in-residence at Saga Artist Residency in Iceland this past January. I received my BFA in Design in 2009 from the Peck School of the Arts. I am a cofounder of climateprints.org. 
Experience: Big Spaceship, Elephant, Cramer-Krasselt, Vice Media and The Public Society in both art direction and design roles. Clients: Apple, Google Play, NBA, Netflix, U.N. Environment (UNEP), HeForShe, The Yes Men, SeaDoo, Patron Tequila and Johnsonville Sausage.
I love rock climbing, exploring the outdoors, and making music videos for fun. Follow me on Instagram @josiahwerning as I play with my creative practice.
