ART DIRECTOR, UI DESIGNER & ILLUSTRATOR
Mr. Hatch is a senior art director at re:group. A jack of all trades, master of several, he is an amalgamation of five parts abstract art, four parts creative ideas, two parts obscure knowledge and zero parts uninspired.
Joe’s an experienced web designer, digital illustrator and fine artist with a love for locking up type and designing pretty much anything for new or existing brands.
He started his education studying special effects makeup and stop motion animation for film in the Industrial Design Technology program at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in the late 1990s. After a few years of working at 36squares, LLC in Holland, Michigan, crafting logos and beer label artwork for New Holland Brewing Company, Joe worked as a freelance web designer for companies such as AI Film & Video, Duluth Trading Company and Synqronus Communications.
Returning to school in 2015, he earned a Certificate for Web Page Design & Development and an Associate of Arts degree in Graphic Design & Illustration from Madison Area Technical College. Joe resides and works in his birthplace of Ann Arbor, Michigan, with his wife and two daughters. In his spare time, he can be found playing music, painting, building stringed instruments, organic gardening or tending to his honeybees.
