It began with doodling.

Original Doodles From Joshuas ChildhoodJoshua Menken has been doodling designs since he was little. These doodles grew into professional graphic designs. With over 9 years full-time experience, every great design still begins with a basic idea on paper.

Born and raised in North Carolina, Joshua decided to never leave and attended the Art Institute of Charlotte. Shortly after, he received his first advertising gig in Rocky Mount, NC. He spent five and half years learning as much as he could about traditional print and web development and design.

Currently, Joshua is a owner, consultant, developer, and designer in Chicago Illinois. He works for small businesses in the Chicagoland area and Raleigh, Durham, and RTP in North Carolina and the founder and owner of Nudawn Creative. He collaborates with many other talented individuals within the advertising, marketing, PR, video, web, and print industries. Types of projects Joshua works on range from Front-end development, e-marketing, Corporate Identity, Logos, Brochures, Ads, Direct Mail, Packaging, SEO, Video and more!
