Joe Stitzlein is Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director of Stitzlein Studio, a design and strategy practice that builds digital brand systems for the next generation of leading companies.
Prior to opening his own studio Joe was Executive Creative Director for Google Brand Studio and Senior Global Creative Director for Nike Running. He’s also held design positions for Landor, SY Partners, Chronicle Books, and Pentagram. Along with leading the Nike Free shoe creative, he’s designed iconic brand identities for Netflix, dwell magazine, Lilly, and the Mac OS X. He’s worked alongside Steve Jobs to define photography and packaging standards for Apple, and Michelle Obama to launch her Let’s Move program.
His work has been featured in Adweek, the AIGA annual, the Annual of the Type Director’s Club, Atlantic Cities, the Annual of the AIA, fastcodesign.com and at the Cannes, amongst others.
I first met Joe when hiring him as an intern at Landor in San Francisco. He has obviously risen to a full fledged Jedi Master.
