Ten years is a long time. In that timespan, few have made the impact on SLUG Magazine that Lead Designer Joshua Joye has. Joye oversees a team of volunteer designers and constructs many layouts himself each month. His ingenuity, creativity and work ethic have continually matured SLUG’s visual branding—not to mention winning SLUG various design awards over the years. Joye’s attention to detail adds polish to his work: Take a look at pages 21 and 22 of this issue for the design of “Real Haunted Houses: Local Ghost Stories.” Never one to rest on his laurels, he always seeks to progress his work in his designs and frequently employs multidisciplinary approaches to achieve his artistic intentions. Joye enjoys SLUG’s penchant for meeting and conversing with new, local people, who are driven to make Salt Lake City an exciting and diverse place to live. SLUG counts him in that milieu.
