HEYo! I'M JOSH FERRIN.
I MAKE THINGS. DESIGNS. STORIES. EXPERIENCES.
WHAT I DO
While I earned my chops as a designer, I’ve built a reputation as a go-to creative resource with a deep skillset, real-world marketing know-how and a low-down desire to make cool stuff. That’s a lot of hyphens. So...
Simply put, I make things look amazing.
RECENT WORK OF WHICH I'M FOND
Freelance designer & consultant
Creative hired-gun for brands like JDRF, Reebok, WGU, Ragnar and others. Crafted campaigns, refreshed brands and resurrected rusty apparel lines. Basically, I helped brands go from boring to badass.
“Josh is one of those few designers who is not only truly creative but also nails it when it comes to meeting the business objective. He is hands down my favorite person to have in a brainstorm and I love any chance that I have to work with him!”
- Jennifer Janke. VP Marketing - Chargeback
Caretaker of the Ragnar Brand. Guided and developed all creative assets and campaigns. Rebuilt all merchandise designs that lead to 4x growth in sales. Crafted content strategy that lead to 500k+ cult-like following.
Oversaw and executed all content & creative, while relaunching the brand. Extended our reach through video content and new products & experiences to +3.4 million reach. Had a dang good time, and got to watch nearly 1 million people wear my designs, apparel and race medals.
Years have passed, but churning out charts, infographics, and editorial illustrations is where I learned to exceed expectations and to never, NEVER miss a deadline.
Brought in to refresh legacy (i.e. old-looking) products. I overhauled the style, look & feel of large publications while building new standards, design teams and systems.
