Our story . . .


Josh Penrod

Josh Penrod is Senior Art Director at Joe Zeff Design.

He manages our day-to-day operations, overseeing our team of art directors and producers and playing a lead role in every project we take on, from design to development to deployment. 

A graduate of the University of South Carolina, Josh previously held design positions at the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times and The San Diego Union-Tribune and taught visual journalism courses at Fordham University. He combines the inquisitive mind of a journalist with the intensity of a middle linebacker, and contributes in all aspects of app development from concepting to production. With a background that includes HTML programming, Josh adds custom functionality to the apps that we build using Adobe Digital Publishing Suite.

Josh has been part of Joe Zeff Design since 2011 and lives in Montclair, NJ, with his wife and daughter. He is a huge fan of college football, oversized whiteboards and barbecue.
