About

Hi, I'm Joseph's Thoong, but I usually go by Joe. I'm a graphic designer based in Nanaimo, Canada. I'm also in my fourth year of the Graphic Design program at Vancouver Island University. 

Q: Why the apostrophe S?

A: I was born at St Joseph's Hospital in Courtenay, Canada. My parents named me after the hospital, but they spoke little to no English. When they wrote down my name, they didn't realize that the hospital's name had an apostrophe S.

Joseph is one of the most common names one could have. The apostrophe S in a way has given character and life to my name. I'm deeply passionate about what design can do to make the mundane extraordinary. Much like my name has come to symbolize.
