Joe DeLuca

Inspired by the art of skateboarding culture, Joe found his calling for design and never looked back. During his time at Columbia College Chicago, Joe earned his BA in Illustration, honing his own illustrative style piece after piece. With his tools of the trade (just a pen, ink and a computer) in tow, his designs add a refined artistic touch to both the BatesMeron brand and those of our clients.

Outside of design, Joe is passionate about skateboarding, a lifelong hockey fan, and quite the tattoo connoisseur—he lost count of just how many he’s got. When he isn’t working on his next creation, Joe is always open to learning something new, whether it’s through a new experience or the latest Netflix documentary. And as for the future? Joe’s up for anything.
