Joe Stuart
president, creative partner

Joe is the agency’s founding partner and senior art director. He has been creating award-winning work for over 20 years, including recognition from CLIO, Art Directors Club, Communication Arts, Graphis, The One Show and two Emmys.

Joe’s sense of style and meticulous attention to detail is evident in every piece of work we do. His approach to great design is grounded in developing the best, most effective work for his clients – always pushing to evoke a powerful, emotional connection to his clients’ products. 

With Walgreens, Joe took his keen sense of aesthetic and made it approachable
for all. Taking Walgreens from a once stodgy and outdated brand to a more contemporary and desirable one, largely through the power of imagery.

In addition to his current creative responsibilities, which include Illinois Lottery, Northern Trust and Corner Bakery, Joe’s previous experience includes United Airlines, Wilson Sporting Goods, BMW, Crate&Barrel, The Land of Nod, Dewars, Allen Edmonds and Air France. Joe also has years of experience wearing plaid shirts and is widely considered a leader in that field.
