Josh Higgins

Creative Director / Facebook (San Francisco)


Currently manager for the Communication Design team at Facebook, a multidisciplinary team of art directors, designers, writers, film makers, and engineers who’s mission is brand development and communication for Facebook. In 2013 Josh concluded his role as Design Director for President Obama’s 2012 campaign. As the Design Director, Josh built and led the design team for the historic 2012 political campaign in which the web, design, and technology played a pivotal role. The responsibility of Josh and the team was to design the Obama 2012 campaign both online and offline. A main focus of his was on creating a uniform message and consistent visual language across all mediums. With roots in both advertising and graphic design, Josh’s work has earned him national honors.

Josh dedicates a percentage of his time to social causes. Finding creative ways to support them has manifested into successful exhibits and charitable projects, like The Hurricane, So-Cal and Haiti Poster Projects in addition to lecture series with photographers, designers and film makers with proceeds donated to various charitable organizations.

Building Campaigns, Communication and Character

From touring musician on MCA/Universal Records, Design Director for President Obama’s 2012 campaign, to Creative Director of Facebook’s Communication Design team, it feels like Josh Higgins has lived a lot of lives. Taking us through the course of his career, he touched on the moments that led to each of these experiences, what he’s learned along the way and “what the f*ck he does at Facebook”.
