Hi there! So as you probably already know, I'm Joel Robinson. But what is there to know about me? I graduated Lehigh University in May 2017, where I earned my BA in Design with a double concentration in industrial and graphic, as well as an entrepreneurship minor. I'm excited to take all the skills I learned at school and put them to use in the workforce. Everything I do has some element of design incorporated into it, whether it's a business presentation, a resume, or an actual product. I believe that everything deserves to be created with some sense of design.
My true passion is problem solving. My favorite part of the design process is when something unexpected or unplanned happens, and I have to figure out how to deal with it or work around it. My personal motto is "Solving problems through design," which I keep in mind whenever I'm working on a project. I love being challenged and making cool things, and through my years of experimentation I've discovered that being a designer is the best way to incorporate that into my life.
Some big influences on my life are my love for stories. Whether it be in the form of books, comics, TV shows, movies, or video games. I love immersing myself in new worlds and viewing things through a new perspective. I am also very into observing and understanding nature, and the universe as a whole. I spend lots of my free time watching nature documentaries on netflix or science videos on YouTube, both for my own edification and as a source of design inspiration. I love learning about the world around me, and then being able to discuss it with my friends. This helps me think of new ideas, and look at problems from different perspectives.
