Joy Gilmore

About Me

Hello! I am Joy Gilmore and I am a multi-disciplinary graphic designer with 15 years of experience. Graphic design is my passion. I have been involved in all aspects of design; from creating new marketing campaigns to production and everything in between. 

I have experience working with a diverse group of industries including retail, healthcare, dental, electrical, construction, real estate, mortgage, housing, loan, banking, finance, B2B, B2C, and many more!  I believe clear communication, efficiency, and ingenuity are all part of what makes me stand out as a designer. Generally, I like to keep my designs polished, professional, and modern. 

Having a very adaptable personality, I work well both independently or with a team. I have been most praised for my strong work ethic, deadline-driven mindset, sense of humor, and ability to calm people down in stressful situations.

Fun Fact #1

In my free time I like to paint and have converted my dining room into my own professional studio.
