"When you're curious, you find lots of interesting things to do."

- Walt Disney

 
 

This is what I do.

Design is awesome: the clashing of left-brain science and right-brain creativity is what gets me up in the morning and keeps me burning the midnight oil. I love crafting experiences both physical and digital, blowing out a brand, and digging into UX workflows.

Design is so much more than a coat of paint: I aim to take information and ideas and deliver them in understandable, digestible, and dynamic ways. This process of refinement, creativity, and the exchange of ideas is where the rubber meets the road and the fun kicks in.

Straw Dog Design is my outlet for showcasing work done both professionally and on the side. Professional work is exciting enough, but side work has allowed me an outlet to design everything from branding for a parkour gym to a gold-inlaid tomb. Why "Straw Dog Design?" It's a funny story and I can tell you in person.

Let's make some cool stuff together,
Josiah
