About Me



Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Josh Story, and I am a lover of all things art and design. I've spent about ten years working as a respiratory therapist at Arkansas Children's Hospital. While there are many benefits that surround a career in the healthcare industry, I have always felt a need to create. As a hobbyist, I've spent much of my time working with graphic design, visual art, music composition / production, sound design, animation, and web design. So, I decided to follow my heart and pursue a career in the field of design.

I completed a BA in Graphic Design and Media Arts in March 2021 and am now involved in multiple internships in both graphic and web design. I picked up graphic art as a hobby about three years ago and fell in love with Photoshop and Illustrator. I enjoy working in a digital environment because limitations rarely exist beyond the artist's or designer's own creative process and skill level, though organic tools can be nice, too! The creative process has always brought about a sense of calm and clarity no matter the circumstances.

A bit about my personal life: my wife, Katie, and I live in central Arkansas. We are homebodies, for the most part, but we do enjoy going out for a nice meal once in a while! We do love to travel to new places, see new sights, and take in new things. The world is packed full of opportunities to explore!

Thank you for taking the time to learn a little about me, but please know... This was never about me, this was always about YOU!

Best Regards,
