Joey is a 1st place winner of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) biennial design competition, Command X; he was named a 2015 New Visual Artist and, separately, Wunderkind young designer, both by PRINT Magazine. He holds a BFA in Graphic Design from the School of Visual Arts in New York City; he also spent four years pursuing a BA in Literature & Philosophy at Seton Hall University.

He believes that design is the least of a designer’s worries, that story is at the heart of all tasks, and jumping off cliffs is the only way to grow.
