My name is Josh Hodgson. I'm a well rounded creative with a wide range of experience in video, interactive and web design. During the course of my 15 yr career I have been lucky enough to work on some really cool projects. Some of which include clients such as HP, Disney, Poniac & SunnyD to name a few. My biggest strength is being a creative leader. I'm a strong conceptual thinker and problem solver. I'm also technically savvy which helps me to manage and bridge communication between creative and development teams. On top of that, I'm a very hands on veteran of the Adobe Suite - including After Effects. I'm always looking for interesting and challenging work, but more importantly - to stay relevant.
