"Okay, So Here's The Deal..."
JOSH COLE IS A POLY-HYPHENATED CREATIVE & SERIAL ENTREPRENEUR.
I know, but It’s far easier to say than designer-maker-growth-hacker-writer-illustrator-creative-technologist-with-a-deep-love-of-product-ideation-and-development.
JUST THE FACTS.
The Elevator Pitch on Who I Am and What I Do
I’m a freelance Creative / Art Director & UI / Interaction Designer, founder of Artistry in Games and Bench Hound, and teaching design and professional practices at Messiah College. I currently live in Harrisburg, PA and back to Nashville in May.
Honored to have been a part of the team that designed, developed and launched Facedeals, while at redpepper, an ad agency in Nashville. Using facial recognition software, Facedeals, upon recognizing you walking into your favorite shopping destination, with your permission, sends a customized deal to your mobile device based on your Facebook “like” history.
During my career I’ve had the privilege of having worked with companies such as OUYA, Verizon, HP, Country Music Television, Sony Records, Off Broadway Shoes, Healthways, Deloitte, Blue Cross Blue Shield, SVP Worldwide, Husqvarna-Viking, Healthways, Ping Identity, Vanderbilt University & More.
Sadly, while in school for digital animation and multimedia, I turned down a job in New Zealand working on a “unnamed” movie trilogy project as a texture and lighting artist which, sadly, was revealed later to be the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Ooops.
I’m husband to a beautiful wife bent on saving every animal on the planet and dad to a maniacally playful baby boy skilled in the ancient art of mimicry, growling and fit throwing.
