My name is Joe Donaldson.

I'm a father, husband & cat-loving creative person. In the past I've been a Floridian, a Chicagoan, a New Yorker and a Los Angelean. I now happily spend my time between Florida and New York City. 

I'm currently working at Ringling College of Art and Design as a professor in the Motion Design department. In addition to working at Ringling, I'm an editor for the industry-leading website, Motionographer.

Outside of the commercial world, I maintain and operate Jodie. Jodie is my personal practice and exists as an effort to create more art and less advertising. Centered around the idea of healthy boundaries, Jodie acts as an outlet to further my voice through commissioned projects.

If you’d like to work together, have a project in mind or would just like to say hello, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I’d love to hear from you!
