Jolby & Friends is a multi-disciplinary creative studio building meaningful and thoughtful experiences through collaboration.

Endlessly in pursuit of complex and challenging projects, our goal is only achieved when we can tell a memorable story creatively. What we build should move someone, make them feel something, leave them in awe, and make them smile.

As a team of the best makers, creators, thinkers, and wonderers, we never settle. We push ourselves and the brands that we work with to new places and create what we could have never achieved on our own. We collaborate for the better.

Jolby & Friends

Josh Kenyon & Colby Nichols (Jolby) began their partnership in 2005 taking on freelance work outside their agency Art Director day jobs. In 2010 the two decided to open their own studio and quickly grew in scope and creativity. The team that emerged is built on the original foundation of putting oneself aside in order to create the best collaborative work possible.
