I am Josiah, and I have a personality.

I love optimism, dreaming big, learning from failure, exploring, encouragement & fighting for what's right. I'm interested in
where magic meets reality, and in problems beneath the problems.
I'm practicing using design as a tool for revealing hope in the world. 
Most recently, I was the Design Lead & Creative Director for
Cynthia Nixon's gubernatorial campaign. Before that, I freelanced
at Big Spaceship (client: Google) and Elephant (client: Apple). 
Much of my personal work brings branding to social movements, nonprofit organizations, and community groups to amplify voices that need to be heard. I was 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.
