Joel MacLeod

Owner, Graphic & Web Designer

Hi, I’m Joel!

When I’m not working, you can find me on the west coast of Vancouver Island in search of the perfect wave or playing drums with my musical cohort.

I love working with small businesses as I get to be a part of their journey, witness their success, and bring their vision to life.

I started my studio, Dream State Design, in 2018 and since then have worked across diverse industries from financial services to transportation to hospitality. My work has been featured in design publications in North America, Asia and Europe.

I am known for my reliability, sense of humour and dedication to spectacular visual messaging.

If you have a project you want to chat about, get in touch with me!

I love working with Dream State Design.

Joel is responsive and communicates honestly and openly. He is proactive in his advice and creative direction. The result was a cohesive visual brand that communicates my client’s core values, an engaging logo that scales well (from a social media icon to the side of a freighter), and a website that clearly communicates their diverse offerings. Looking forward to working with Joel again.
