Josh Wallace is a Minneapolis-based artist, illustrator, and graphic designer who’s done everything from creating three-eyed plastic monsters and composing electronic music to designing and illustrating a children’s book series. Creativity is his passion, and he spends most of his time offering this to the world of small business.
By day, he lends his creative skills to The Metro Super Saver, helping their many local Twin Cities clients grow and prosper. “Working with Super Saver has given me a ton of intimate opportunities to meet directly with enthusiastic business owners,” he says. “It’s really exciting to be able to get behind the scenes of these people’s accomplishments and help push them further!”
For Wallace, the inventing industry is another area of small business with amazing clients. “I’ve gotten to try out some really cool products that seem like they should have already been invented!” For years, his tools and experience have helped countless inventors with logo design, brochures, product illustration, photography, packaging design, web graphics, and more.
"A lot goes into each graphic design project, advertising campaign and illustration because smart, well thought out ideas don't usually come out of nowhere. Client communication, research and brainstorming work together towards the solution. Every client is different: their projects, their expectations, their audience... they all vary in so many different ways. Everyone deserves careful attention and a unique approach towards their visual solution."
