Josh Bach, In his own words, Josh has this to say about himself:
Formally trained as an architect, and working later as an art director, I draw from my rich experiences in both disciplines to create unique, original products meant to catch the eye. Whether it's bold artwork from the New York City subway map or the subtle pattern of the nighttime constellations, I strive to create clever, creative and very wearable interpretations of the everyday.
