Proud First Generation Asain-American Art Director & Product Designer


I'm a designer that likes to move quickly from idea to making.


I'm Joe Carolino, a proud first–generation Asian American, multi-disciplinary designer living in Portland. Currently working with startups, launching business pilot programs, solving complex experiences and pushing pixels. I've been grinding since 06' and have worked with some great brands including Nike, Ralph Lauren, Target, Hyundai, Luxottica & Hermès.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family & friends, reading a well-considered magazine, working on or riding my motorcycle, picking up odd hobbies to tinker around in, and am a collector of many things.

Feel free to drop me a line.
