While the designer’s style varies slightly to suit each different product that he works on, in general he strives for as simple and basic a look as possible for each item. The resulting products are perfect for a modern home, adding functionality and form to any space. In a recent project, Joel helped to design a small, streamlined product for home medical use, with iPhone integration.
