Joey Marsh


Brighton, United Kingdom
I’m a confident, competent and imaginative designer with an extensive experience working on a range of different briefs for a mixture of clients. I have an excellent approach to solving problems and using design to communicate a concept.

From a young age I have been fascinated by concept and design and the most effective ways of communicating an idea to an audience. I enjoy working to a brief, working with others to solve and explore ideas and always meeting tight deadlines.

I am an ambitious and dedicated professional eager to gain experience in a creative environment. I am hoping for new and challenging opportunities, which will make best use of my existing creative skills and experiences and also further my personal and professional development.
