Joe Tavares is a designer and photographer based in Los Angeles, currently a part of the team at Colony. His approach to design is centered on clear and effective visual communication. This is influenced by his exploration of unfamiliar areas of study and through creating new forms, meanings, and ideas by applying a process of translation through design. Joe is extremely passionate about his work and finds great worth in strategy and collaboration.

Joe aims to deliver thoughtful and challenging concepts through a process of research, development, and refinement. As a way to inform his design and gain inspiration on his free-time, he practices photography and collage. He is also spends too much time in galleries and museums.
