Much of what I learned is owed to generous mentors and peer-support. These human conversations help to spread perspectives and arm me with correct expectations. In an effort to give back to my community, I teach public workshops, mentor at accelerators, and run a peer-support community called Undersurface.
One of my workshop series is Joe's Quickstart Guide to Visual Design — a practically oriented bootcamp for students & professionals to quickly, but dramatically improve their visual design skills.
All my events are designed to be very practical and collaborative; full of exercises and good fun, rather than long theoretical talks.
