Pink Slip Industries began in the depths of the Great Recession, amidst a string of layoffs and a stack of ignored resumes. When life seemed its bleakest and rent its highest, Josh and Liz determined to make the best of the situation and took the opportunity to start working for themselves.
We’re ready to apply that same optimism and go-get-em attitude to your next big project, whether it’s a smart branding strategy, a complicated website, or a stack of fancy business cards. Being a small business ourselves, we have an intimate understanding of the needs of small businesses. We realize that the difference between a good logo and a bad one can be the difference between buying groceries and not. Having your brand represent you and stand out among your peers isn’t only a matter of aesthetics. It’s a necessity.
We have the knowledge and talent to figure out exactly what fits who you are and what you do, and we have the sense of humor to enjoy doing it. With experience in logos and branding, advertising, illustration, web design, copywriting, print services and multimedia coordination, we have a full box of tools to provide just what the doctor ordered—even if that means mixing a metaphor.
Josh is the guy you call when you need an idea. While, sure, his BS in Digital Media provides understanding of fancy computer programs, and maybe his MFA in Media Design lends expertise in branding and marketing, all of that stuff really just provides the tools for execution. Josh’s real knack is for idea-making. With over ten years working in the industry in different capacities, Josh brings experience, technical skill, and big picture awareness to each project at Pink Slip.
Liz never set out to be a designer. In fact, she’d given up on the idea of art long ago, after finishing her time at an arts high school. But, she found that art had a pesky way of sneaking back in—whether when she was illustrating a textbook, or commissioned to paint a mural, or opening a small stationery shop as a “hobby.” Working with Josh at Pink Slip, Liz flexes her natural eye for color and type, her keen awareness of design trends, and her perfectionist attention to detail.
