About Joel

Founder, web & graphic designer, brand strategist

When I’m not working, you can find me chasing waves on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver Island or in the jam space playing music with my buddies.


Before I was trained as a designer, I was creating logos and graphics for bands and breweries.


I fell in love with the power of design and how it can evoke emotions, spread ideas and change the world.


I started Wave Web studio to do more of that. To work with purpose driven business owners to bring their vision to life and make a positive impact.

Since I started the studio in 2018, I have had the opportunity to work across diverse industries from financial services to trades to health and wellness and more.


My work has been featured in design publications in North America, Asia and Europe. It’s been an incredible journey so far, and I’m thrilled at the prospect of embarking on this new adventure with you!

I love working with Wave Web Studio.

Joel is responsive and communicates honestly and openly. He is proactive in his advice and creative direction. The result was a cohesive visual brand that communicates my client’s core values, and a website that clearly communicates their diverse offerings. Looking forward to working with Joel again.
