Joe Epstein – LDN Digital Design

Digital Design and Art Direction

Working across many different sectors in many diverse frameworks, I have worked independently, as part of a team, and remotely, as a versatile digital designer for over 30 years.

From a junior designing 35mm slides for business (BPPT – Before Powerpoint!), inventing new ways of interaction for CD-ROM, breaking new ground on digital television platforms, early web and mobile devices. To leading production teams, developing production processes, defining brand guidelines, mentoring, and managing large-scale productions from concept to delivery.

I maintain a hands-on approach and high-end production skills, with a keen eye on design and technology. Embracing typography, colour, composition, quality and functionality, I am well-versed in layout and visual representation, with a practical and positive approach to any design challenge.

Working mainly with interactive multi-media content, I also have extensive experience producing print based media. There's a few pieces of branding and campaign work below, and many more examples in each of the 'media types' of my portfolio.
