Joseph Sgambati III

New York, NY, US



I am a young designer and writer with a passion for creative direction and a desire to explore the intersection of such disciplines as architecture, fashion, and graphic design. My formal education allows me to explore ideas with both the vigor of an architect and the thoroughness of a journalist. In addition to a résumé  with an eclectic mix of experience,  my portfolio showcases a range projects from digital to traditional media. A current endeavor of mine is to see a few  personal publication ideas through  from concept to realization. I hope to enrich the lives of others with my work the way others  have inspired me.
