JOSHUA KYLE ORTIZ
BORN: DERBY, CONNECTICUT
CURRENTLY: LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
BioSince I could remember, I’ve always been a creative individual. Growing up with the internet and seeing it evolve, so did my creativity and skillset. In my earliest years, photography and graphic design were my goto mediums. Then as I grew, I matured into more web & mobile design where I would later get my first few creative jobs.
After a few years in graphic design, I started working with more marketing directors that needed to grow their brands. Studying closely to how they approached their campaigns, I learned how to create my own using the design/photo skills I had. Since then I’ve helped all kinds of businesses rebrand and grow their market reach. My passion now is the same as it’s always been, to create amazing products that will help others grow.
