Short bio 
I was introduced to the world of graphic design via Photoshop version 3.0 in high school. In college I networked with design studios and training facilities through out San Francisco, gaining insight to the trends of the industry. Since 2006 I have instructed digital design privately and for businesses such as BAVC and Pixar. I joined Apple in 2007 as a software trainer where I became an expert in the iOS & OSX platforms. Joel Griffin Creative was established in 2016 as a platform to expand my partnerships and showcase the media from my collaborations and  personal ventures.

"I convert information into visual media.

It's what I do and what I love."
