Welcome to the Art and Design portfolio of Joseph Snodgrass. I am currently wrapping up my sixth year of college, graduating with my BFA in Visual Communication Design and degree in Public History from Eastern Washington University (pending any unforeseen occurrences). I acquired my A.A. from Spokane Falls Community College – a most excellent establishment to be able to spend my first years of college at. I entered the VCD program at EWU in the Fall of 02011 and was fortunate enough to have some incredible instruction from some of the finest professors I could have hoped for. I will be incredibly indebted to some of the insight they provided. Pardon any missing content during the process of creation of this site. Please browse my work as it becomes available and feel free to contact me at the mere thought of it. Recently my work has been featured at Terrain 6 in Spokane, the Creative Works Symposium at EWU, and before entering the program I had already contributed to a notable project called the Symphony of Science, the science music video remix project by John Boswell. I was privileged enough to be the principle designer for the logo for the Symphony of Science videos beginning with the video “The Big Beginning”. One of the biggest honors I could ask for is being a part of that project. “Since its launch in Fall 2009, Symphony of Science has been featured on NPR, Wired, Adult Swim, The Scientist, Attack of the Show, The Skeptics Guide to the Universe, Bad Astronomy, The Examiner, net@night, and many more outlets. The videos have attracted over 25 million views online…” (source: SoS website) My hobbies include a variety of audio experiments, the study of Late Antiquity through the Middle Ages, starting research projects and becoming enveloped by them, raising chickens, and a bunch of other stuff that just makes me sound like I’m really into intellectual pursuits – a deceiving notion I would never give a finished answer to and which, when examined thoroughly only results in a combina- My advisors have been Melinda Breen in the Visual Communication Design department and Greg duMonthier in the Art Department at Eastern Washington University. Other notable faculty from varying schools/colleges include Travis Masingale, Ginelle Hustrulid, Larry Cebula, P. Colin Manikoth, Tom Couraud, George Suttle, Kurt Kinbacher, David Picht, John Whitmer, Jerry O’Neal, Barbara Miller, Eric Galey, Nancy Hathaway, David Overstreet, Roger Ralston, Lisa Nappa, Jenny Hyde, Chris Tyllia, Tom Askman and no doubt more Teachers/Professors/fellow humans as I have the opportunity to work with them. I’m continually inspired by the work of Brian Eno and Carl Sagan, with additional support by Isaac Asimov, Alan Lightman, and Stewart Brand. Finally, I am thankful for the love and support of my family and friends.
