Joseph Coombes


Joseph’s interests lay at the intersection of design, business, storytelling and technology; his experience and education reflect this.

Joseph graduated with Distinction from SFU with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications, Minor in Business. Joseph received the President’s and Dean’s Honour Roll during his studies at SFU. Prior to completing his degree, Joseph received a Motion Picture Production Diploma from Capilano University and spent several years working in a veteran talent agency, representing some of the country’s most celebrated and successful actors. Joseph has been fortunate enough to work as a designer and web developer since leaving the film industry in 2012. During this time he worked as a designer, web developer and consultant as part of in-house teams as well as in a freelance capacity with agencies and businesses to create resonant brands and deliver valuable design and digital projects.

Joseph worked most recently as part of Railyard Lab, a studio run by future design and business leaders, created by Dossier Creative.

Joseph is an endlessly curious, podcast-devouring, animal lover.
