Joe Childs

Art Director / Designer

Hi, I’m Joe. I am an Integrated Art Director and Designer with 11 years of experience in branding, identity, design for print, digital, social media and advertising. I have worked in fast paced graphic design studios and advertising agencies, working for a large variety of clients in sectors ranging from business to business, luxury retail, high volume hospitality chains and financial services.

I find great enjoyment working closely with copywriters and design teams to create and develop strategic concepts and creative ideas that win pitches and challenge and inspire retained clients. My career level requires me to manage designers and direct / guide other teams such as web developers and producers to achieve a holistic goal and deliver the creative idea across different platforms.

I believe that a successful project comes from developing a great understanding from the start, listening and taking time to fully grasp a client’s personality and objectives. All strategic creative ideas and decisions need to have a solid rational and have a genuine reason to be implemented. Research and a extensive background knowledge of each project is key.

I relish a challenge and I approach every project no matter how big or small, with enthusiasm and creativity. I am a lateral thinker and a keen problem solver who always strives to develop ideas which are creative and original, while being sympathetic to the clients needs and target audience.

When I find time away from work, my wife and our three children, I also paint graffiti see my work here: joepoer
