About me
Conceptual Designer / Art Director with 12 years of experience in branding, identity, design for print, digital, social media and advertising. I have worked in fast paced graphic design studios and advertising agencies, working for a large variety of clients in sectors ranging from business to business, luxury retail, high volume hospitality chains and financial services. I believe that a successful project comes from developing a great understanding from the start, listening and taking time to fully grasp a client’s personality and objectives. All strategic creative ideas and decisions need to have a solid rational and have a genuine reason to be implemented. Research and a extensive background knowledge of each project is key. I relish a challenge and I approach every project no matter how big or small, with enthusiasm and creativity. I am a lateral thinker and a keen problem solver who always strives to develop ideas which are creative and original, while being sympathetic to the clients needs and target audience. When I find time away from work, I also paint graffiti. See my work here: www.instagram.com/joepoer

Safe places to stay like the homes of trained individuals through their volunteer host network. But they needed help to become more prominent and attract more hosts.
