Soul-full Wonder

Developing relevant brands, designing beautiful print & directing usable websites to speak into culture.

In my time here at Copycats Media I have worked on hundreds of projects. The Travis Oberg project "Bloodlines" would be in my top 5 projects as far as look and design. The stylish and crisp look grabs you and makes you want to listen to the record from only just seeing the cover art. It is truly beautiful. Justin Kristal, Copycats Media
I wish everyone I worked with, dear Josh, could capture a vision like you do! You're amazing. As far as I can determine, the brochure now looks perfect! My applause! Thank you for really listening to what I say, then capturing what I mean and translating it into visuals that work beautifully. You are great to work with, Josh! Anne Graham Lotz, AnGel Ministries
Joshua is an absolute professional. He is bright, creative, insightful, and best of all - a good listener. He's perceptive and produces work that goes way beyond what the client expects. He's very conscientious and hard working. I would hire Joshua again in a minute. John White, InsectLore
Josh took us through a very unique process and was able to dig deep into the heart of our organization to come up with a unique branding that characterized us perfectly…He really has a way of capturing the true essence of what our organization is all about. John Alvarado, Reflect Ministries
Josh is a great designer and is a pleasure to work with. He pours into his work and does nothing half-heartedly. With his finger constantly on the pulse of culture and industry, Josh's work continues to prove beautiful and effective. Nate Sees, Sparrow Visual Design
Joshua does fantastic work and is great to work with. He takes ownership of projects and adds his creativity to make products better than planned. David Jay, Showit
Josh is a very talented graphic artist, combining a rare mix of great skills in design, writing, creative brainstorming, photography, and layout. He is conscientious, seeks to understand what needs to be communicated before launching a project, and is an asset to any team. The best part is that Josh is also very enjoyable to work with and was often sought out by much of our staff. I heartly recommend him for just about any job. Jeff Lilley, Seattle Union Gospel Mission
I really like this brochure and I am more excited about this cruise than I have ever, ever been about a cruise. WOW. Cynthia Swindoll, Insight For Living
...Looks really great. Your work is so solid. Peter Thomsen,
Can't say enough about our experience with Josh. We were working with this company on promoting our cruises and special events prior to his joining the team and while we were happy with the results and branding experiences - Josh really brought it to a whole new level and a consistency to our branded events that we didn't have previously. Can't recommend him enough! Derek Spirk, Michael W. Smith Group

It isn’t work when you love doing it.

The Studio: WonderFull is a branding, design and print studio dedicated to clear communication and beautiful presentation. I promise two things: exceptional work and an excellent working experience. I don’t chase graphic fads and visual fashions. I’m impassioned by design appropriateness and energized by helping others define and design their story in a clear, concise and consistent way. I give commitment to the long haul, dedication to process and absolute top quality proven in the smallest details.

The moment one gives close attention to anything, even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself. ~ Henry Miller

For the last 15 years I’ve been directing Christian organizations in branding, design and marketing decisions. In those years I’ve developed a love of working with other creatives. This collaboration and pursuit of impossible goals is what gets me out of bed each morning. I don’t just want to do good design; I want to get a response, impact lives and use my craft toward some larger purpose. Art and design are languages that speak into culture and I want to shape a worthy voice in every thing that I create.

Why the name ‘WonderFull’? The WonderFull name comes from two thoughts, the first of which is self-evident. I love quality, and aspire to the highest standard in everything I do. Projects that aim only for ‘good enough’ are worse than ones never begun. Work done well is its own reward.

The second thought is deeper, more abstract. In 1998 I was offered a lead design position that my English Literature & Architecture Bachelors left me woefully unqualified to accept. Hard work, a passion for precision, and God’s grace sufficed where lack of talent left great want. In Isaiah 9:6 Jesus is called “wonderful counselor” and I once heard that the word wonderful in this passage means much more than simply ‘miraculous’. The actual definition means it could not have happened without God’s intervention. This resonates deeply with me.

My life, overflowing with innumerable gifts and mercies, evidences this same intervention. The name WonderFull is my reminder to be thankful, humble, and filled with awareness at the beauty and blessings of my God. I am in wonder of him.
