ABOUT


HI, MY NAME IS JOEL RICHARD V. ESCORPISO—BUT PEOPLE CALL ME "JO-EL."

 

Originally from California, I continue my 12 years of combined studio and corporate design experience as a Senior Art Director specializing in print, web and motion design in Chicago, Illinois.

 

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Design from the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles. Currently, I work as an Senior Art Director for Conversant, Inc. (formerly known as ValueClick, Inc.), working under the Marketing Creative Services team. Conversant, Inc. is the leader in personalized digital marketing reaching audiences across multi-devices around the globe, and is a subset of Epsilon, under the corporate umbrella of Alliance Data Systems (ADS).

I have honed my print and digital design skills working with various companies like Specific Media, Myspace, Vindico, Xumo, SiteMeter, FremantleMedia, Frontiers Media and Melbert Design Group. In 2004, I also launched my owned and operated social networking site "Filiztik,” which was geared towards young Filipino Americans.

 

Consistency is a common thread throughout my work. I design with simplicity and purpose—if a design element doesn’t have a purpose, it probably shouldn’t exist. I’m a perfectionist who doesn’t cut corners, waste pixels or leave details unpolished. My goal is to produce designs that are as clean, interactive and beautiful as they are effective.



I enjoy collaborating with others who are as passionate about their work as I am—people who know what they want but are open to exploring new and innovative ways to get to the final product.

 "Joel is an extremely creative and talented individual. He is laid back and easy to work with and always finds a way to immediately grasp a concept and turn it into something that is visually stunning. I was repeatedly impressed by his ability to take his vision and turn it into something tangible and eye-catching. No matter the situation, Joel delivered with a terrific finished project."
