Hello…my name is Joe Fino

I’m a web guy. A full-on digital communications guru.

Yep, that’s right. I said it.

In my career, I have had the pleasure of working with some great brands—big and small, national and local—and I’m just getting started. Some of the brands you may know are, The Associated Press, Under Armour, BMW North America, Hyundai, CarMax, HBO, Black & Decker, and Bermuda Tourism.

Technology is ever-changing and I’m the kind of person who enjoys staying ahead of the latest trends—using technology to create new and exciting experiences. Am I a visionary? I don’t think of it that way but hire me, and you be the judge. Simply put, I try to push the boundaries and develop creative solutions that help businesses.

I’m a bit of a renaissance man as well. I’ve been known to write—blogs, technical articles, TEDx presentations, I’m a bit of a photographer—I once made a living at it but now it’s mostly photos of vacations and kids with occasional client work thrown in, oh and I can design, too. I feel all of this varied experience makes me the right kind of person to lead creative teams, and provide solid digital strategy. Did I mention I specialize in building custom WordPress themes as well as other open-source solutions? You can add that to the list of things I can offer too.

I’m passionate and hungry.

I love what I do…combining logic and creativity in a fun left-brained vs. right-brained sort of way.

I’ve been honored to win awards, if you’re into that sort of thing. They include local and national ADDY Awards, PRSA Awards, I’ve been a Webby Honoree, won the We Love WordPress Design Showcase, received the Mature Media Award, and a Web Smarty. A lot of people will say that awards don’t matter. That it’s simply insiders patting each other on the back, and some days you might even hear me say that. However, awards provide a measuring stick against the competition. They also provide validation that agencies are capable of producing work that gets noticed. And after all, getting noticed is kind of the point, isn’t it?

My Work

Aim For It All. If You Don’t You’ll Never Get It.

I found this Richard Koch quote recently and it seemed to be just what I needed. So I created a desktop for myself so I wouldn’t forget it. If you’d like it, you can grab it here. “Everything you want should be yours: the type of work you want; the...

On A Craft Beer Mission

I am a craft beer lover, and home brewer. A while ago I watched the documentary Beer Wars. It renewed a passion in me. Not at first though—I was scared. I have to admit that after initially seeing the movie I thought it was impossible for any craft brewer...
