The world is full of imagination. Let it inspire, reconnect, and lead the way.
Good design is not a one size fits all solution and the first answer is rarely the best one. It is a process of understanding the client's needs and the environment they have to work with. I strive to help my clients understand what it is that they truly want, and then help them make it a reality.

What is "Dioxua"? (dee-o-shua)
After spending time living in Brazil during high school I grew used to the mispronunciation of my name, Joshua. Phonetically in Portuguese it was spelled Dioxua. Years later I realized that my environment in Brazil had given me a fresh perspective on who I am. Now, I hope to help you discover a fresh perspective on your design needs.
