Josh Mishell has been my part­ner on a num­ber of projects over the years.

He is a good com­mu­ni­ca­tor, prompt, and very pro­fes­sion­al. I would be more than hap­py to work with him on any project in the future.”

Illus­tra­tor

Up-front and candid collaboration with clients.

We cre­at­ed our com­pa­ny site 10 years ago when we start­ed our firm and had not touched it since. Fer­mentable Sug­ar did a com­plete over­haul and now our site not only works on all plat­forms, but more impor­tant­ly, looks more pro­fes­sion­al and rep­re­sents who we are and what we do in a way the old site nev­er did. I wouldn’t hes­i­tate rec­om­mend­ing Josh & Fer­mentable Sug­ar for your next project.”

Founder, Head­wa­ters Strate­gies

We’ve got ideas and aren’t afraid to tell you what we think. At Fer­mentable Sug­ar, we won’t sim­ply nod our head and say yes to every­thing.

We pride our­selves on pro­vid­ing our clients with the high­est cal­iber of work pos­si­ble. In order to achieve that qual­i­ty, we will express our opin­ions clear­ly and let you know hon­est­ly what we think. It’s the best way to achieve work that has a pos­i­tive impact on your cus­tomers.

Fer­mentable Sug­ar is equal parts cre­ativ­i­ty and log­ic, which allows us to see the big pic­ture cre­ative­ly — while also deliv­er­ing on time and on bud­get.

Just as the brew­ing process is col­lab­o­ra­tive, so is the design and mar­ket­ing process, whether it’s one-on-one meet­ings with clients or jug­gling sev­er­al dif­fer­ent con­trac­tors work­ing on the same project.

Fermentable Sugar consistently delivers premium design and high-gravity marketing.

Chief Idea Guy Josh Mishell has 20 years of design and mar­ket­ing expe­ri­ence in a wide vari­ety of indus­tries. His diverse skill-set allows Fer­mentable Sug­ar to be a full-ser­vice agency that looks at the big pic­ture before div­ing into the nit­ty grit­ty details of design and mar­ket­ing.

Before start­ing Fer­mentable Sug­ar, Josh gained sig­nif­i­cant valu­able expe­ri­ence in design and mar­ket­ing through his pre­vi­ous employ­ment.

At the Cre­ative Man­ag­er at Fly­ing Dog Brew­ery, Josh was respon­si­ble for all visu­al ele­ments of the brand, includ­ing a full pack­ag­ing refresh, all point-of-sale design for dis­trib­u­tors, and a full web­site redesign, and hun­dreds of oth­er projects both big and small. Through each of these big-tick­et jobs he worked with his fel­low mem­bers of the mar­ket­ing depart­ment to ensure that each of the designs rein­forced the brew­ery’s mar­ket­ing strat­e­gy. Fly­ing Dog grew about 100% in vol­ume while Josh worked there.

I had the plea­sure of work­ing with Josh at Fly­ing Dog Brew­ery and I was con­tin­u­al­ly impressed with the diver­si­ty of his cre­ative skill set. Josh was a one-man cre­ative machine deliv­er­ing best-in-class pack­ag­ing design, col­lat­er­al design, copy­writ­ing, social media man­age­ment and more. If you’re look­ing for strate­gic, effi­cient and cut­ting edge cre­ative, Josh is your is your man.”

- Neal Stew­art,
Vice Pres­i­dent of Mar­ket­ing at Deschutes Brew­ery

As the Cre­ative Direc­tor at Tinaglia Adver­tis­ing, Josh was respon­si­ble for all cre­ative ele­ments at this small sports mar­ket­ing agency with high-pro­file clients. Work includ­ed art direc­tion for the Unit­ed States Ten­nis Asso­ci­a­tion on the offi­cial poster for the U.S. Open ten­nis tour­na­ment, U.S. Davis Cup and U.S. Fed Cup team posters, and work for numer­ous PGA golf tour­na­ments.

He was also an Ad and Spe­cial Sec­tion Design­er at the Vail Dai­ly news­pa­per in Vail, Col­orado. Work­ing as an as part of an in-house team, Josh learned the ins and outs of print­ing; some­thing new­er dig­i­tal design­ers have far less expe­ri­ence in.

Due to his exten­sive expe­ri­ence in the design indus­try, Josh can bridge the gap between print media and dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing — it’s so impor­tant to main­tain a con­sis­tent brand expe­ri­ence no mat­ter where your brand is being rep­re­sent­ed.
