Who are you?

My name is Joshua Brand and I’m a graphic designer specializing in good times. I’m based in Minneapolis, MN building brands and working with companies I believe in.

What are you working on?

I’m currently working on a branding project for a local photographer. It’s always great working with other creatives where there is mutual respect and trust. It opens the door to explore creatively without concern.

Elevation Video

by Joshua Brand

Concept for Elevation Video in Colorado. Ended up going in a different direction but I like the way this turned out.

My favorite shot is a concept for Elevation Video in Colorado. Even though we ended up going in a different direction I still enjoy the way this came together. It ties the idea of Colorado and framing a shot in a nice compact mark.

Tell us about your setup. What tools did you use to create the shot (e.g. hardware, software, pens, paper, blowtorch)?

Bunny Love Condoms

Bunny Love Condoms

by Cory Loven

Oh yeah! Just a bunch of wholesome bunnies frolicking about. Then throw it on a condom wrapper, and you've got a whole different meaning my friend. *Still looking to get this published. If you have any friends in the Condom Community, hit me up.

One of my favorite shots comes from my buddy Cory Loven. Placing these innocent bunnies on a condom wrapper changes the context completely.
