Hey there, thanks for visiting my site. My name is Josh Maxwell, and as you may well know by now, I love design. On this website you’ll find my personal design portfolio, as well as a blog on a diverse amount of topics including graphic design, wordpress development, as well as references to articles, tutorials and other resources for designers. There’s probably a few personal one’s here and there though.
In September 2008, I married the most wonderful woman in the world! We spend most of our time together when I’m not working. We love movies, but would much rather spend our time out in the sun: kayaking, cycling or out on a hike with our dog.
Before all of that, I worked at NSU’s Public Relations department. Where much of my graphic design portfolio was created.

My parents encouraged me to try new things as a kid. I soon found myself doodling along with public access TV’s cartoonist. Which spurred on my love for cartoons, animation and 3D animation.
In high school, I was drawn more and more towards music. As of now, I am a wanna-be Jazz musician with 7 years of saxophone under my belt.
They say hindsight is 20/20. Ironiclly, I see it is true now. My parents had a huge influence on me throughout my life. I owe a great deal of my ability to find enjoyment in all areas of work to them. Whether it be in front of a pad of paper, a computer screen, or behind an instrument or even a lawn mower, I will do that job to the best of my ablility.
They are the reason I see myself as a driven, diligent and hardworking individual.
In college, I volunteered at Campus Christian Fellowship (CCF) all of my career. While there, I worked for them creating weekly ads, PowerPoint presentations for weekly musical performances, as well as developing an easily update-able website in MS FrontPage, for those with little to no web knowledge.
I can’t get enough of the web! In fact, I enjoy it so much I freelance on the side. If you’re interested, contact me about working on your personal or business site today.
I also have experience as a sound engineer, as I setup/ran the sound equipment for the live weekly music and speakers at CCF. And continue to do so at my church.
I love God with all my heart, soul, mind and body; and, strive daily to live up to my commitment for His name’s sake.
And, on a completely separate and random note: I am sucker for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches…
