Here we showcase the work of freelancer and all round creative Joseph Joyce, he describes his specialties in the graphic design and illustrative fields. After gaining his degree Joseph has gone through a little of the corporate agency work, this allowed him to expand his portfolio with live projects. This lead to him expanding his ideas through his own briefs such as creating illustrations for articles he was inspired by.
Joseph Joyce has an illustrative style which grew from his interest in skateboard in his teenage years, this inspiration grew from the gritty concrete landscape, combining dirty overlaid texture, photography and line drawings leading to experimentation in his own work. This adventure leads him to look out for new and interesting style in any medium or format.
“I love to get the creative buzz feeling after seeing a piece of work that has inspired me. One of my all time favourites are Neasden Control Centre.”
He describes Neasden as ‘varied and so different to anything out there. I pretty much own every publication they’ve put out.’ Joseph is also inspired by the work other Illustrators including; David Foldvari, Darren Hopes, Tim Marrs, Andy Potts, Danny Alison and many more. Lately Joseph describes his work as taking on a more abstract form of late. To keep things fresh and try new things out, which has become evident some of the OWT zines he’s been featured in recently. For the future he plans on putting out some artists books, posters and zines over the next year.
