We believe that true collaboration is more than just working together. It's bringing a piece of yourself to the table and abandoning your ego to be a part of something bigger. In our studio collaboration happens at every level of what we do from concept to execution. 

This is the life of our studio and the identity of who we are: A team of designers, makers, illustrators, thinkers, and wonderers. Never defaulting to one kind of solution, our goal is push the ideas and work to a different place. 

As a team we accomplish more than any of us could have dreamed on our own. This idea is our foundation and our goal, to 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.
