SDCC Alumni Josh Higgins gets top design job for Obama.



A BIG shout goes out to Josh Higgins, San Diego City College Graphic Design Alumni who was just named the Design Director for Obama for America. He will oversee everything graphic for the campaign including the website, brand systems and collateral. All the graphic design you see for the Obama re-election campaign will be from Josh and his creative team.

Josh is a senior designer / art director who works across all disciplines including print, web, environment, identity and television. For over twelve years, he's been refining the art of connecting brands to people with a concept-driven visual style that has earned him national honors. A native San Diegan, with roots in both advertising and graphic design, Josh has done extensive work for brands including Fender Guitars, The Tony Hawk Foundation, Hewlett-Packard, Qualcomm, Asics Footwear, Museum of Contemporary Art SD, CBS Radio, Perry Ellis International, RedBrick Pizza, IHOP, New Castle Beer, PF Changs, Yamaha, Life Technologies, and firms, Miriello Grafico, Mires/Ball, Hollis BC, and Vitrorobertson.

Before completing his design degree at San Diego City College, Josh's first career was as a musician with his band, fluf. The group has 7 albums out on Cargo, FAT and MCA/Universal Records, and has done national tours with Jawbreaker, Fugazi, Rocket from the Crypt, Blink 182, Sublime, The Vans Warped Tour and many others.

With his involvement in the San Diego design community, Josh served on the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), San Diego Board of Directors, where he curated successful exhibits and lecture series with visiting photographers, designers and film makers. His continual work with AIGA and the larger creative community allows him to advance the cause of San Diego arts and culture, and mentor students in the creative industry.

He quickly re-located to Chicago where he will begin a busy 13 months overseeing a team of 33 creatives. Congratulations Josh!

His amazing community spirit is evidenced in the many dynamic projects Josh created like the Hurricane Poster Project, So-Cal Poster Project, and Haiti Poster Project. He has been a regular speaker and mentor in the SDCC graphic design program, organizing student scholarships through fundraising concerts and events.
