“The public is more familiar with bad design than good design. It is, in effect, conditioned to prefer bad design, because that is what it lives with. The new becomes threatening, the old reassuring.”

As a studio who works with a lot of outside vendors, it’s always a joy to work with Josh and he’s definitely one of our favorites. He truly takes the time to get inside your brand, he’s easy to work with and he delivers. Not only is he diversely talented, he just gets it.”- Jay Allen
“If I had to tell a business in one word why they should work with Josh Stone it would be this: Vision. As a consultant, Josh helped us clarify our vision, develop a consistent brand image, and deliver a stylish user experience. Josh has a vast knowledge in the digital space, and adds value to any creative project.”- Ben Illian

He brings a confident yet lighthearted approach to every problem — establishing teams with the energy and passion to create transformative experiences.

“After spending 6+ years in the design field, I thought I had a tight grasp on design and methodology, then I had the pleasure of having Joshua as my Creative Director. I learn something new from him each time we sit down to work on a project together. Over the last year of working together, we’ve designed and developed some of the greatest projects I’ve worked on and his eye for detail and conceptualizing continues to amaze me. He is a great instructor and visionary, and I look forward to working with him again.”- Christine Imaizumi
