Joe’s passion is ideas – exploration, implementation and communication. Joe is a strong advocate of a thorough design process being applied to all design projects, large or small.

Outside the studio, Joe has been an academic lecturer since 2006, teaching in the Bachelor of Design (Communication Design) at RMIT University. He enjoys being a mentor to students and bringing his knowledge, personal insight and experience learnt from running a design business into the classroom.

In 2020 after trading for 20 years under ‘Studio 131′ we decided a fresh new name was deserved. We asked our clients what they liked about us, then developed a name less corporate, one that reflects what we have become for our clients over the years.

Mik & Joe Creative stemmed out of our clients’ enjoyment of the close and personal relationships that we provide, the one-on-one time, as well as the get the job done no matter what attitude!

Why Us?

Our business philosophy is ‘education’. From our initial coffee and discussion about your business and goals, right through the design process and well after the project has been delivered, we will be guiding and teaching you. Consider us a resource – we love questions and want you to get the most out of your brand!

We don’t just ‘design a logo and give you a file’. We explain to you the reasons why we have designed your logo a certain way, the functional and conceptual reasons behind our design solutions that are unique for you, and how they will benefit your business. Each stage and step of the way you will be learning too.
We are a small, yet extremely efficient studio. We pride ourselves on our fast turnarounds, never missing deadlines and providing relevant design solutions that reflect our client’s needs. All this with high energy optimisim and witty humour that our client’s have come to expect from us. To achieve an accurate and relevant design solution, we believe in very clear and open communication – all of the time. We will be honest with you – up-front and decisive.

Lastly, and importantly, we work closely with you throughout the design process so that you are involved in the decision making, and that you are happy and confident with the design stages as they happen, until the final items are completed and implemented for you.

Not sure? Flick us an email and let us know what you have in mind, and we will let you know if we can help with your needs.
