PlainJoe Studios

AS THE NAME SUGGESTS, WE’RE NOT IN THIS TO BUILD OUR STORY; WE’RE IN IT TO BUILD YOURS.

We’re not a full-service agency; rather we’re down-to-earth specialists, artists, architects, strategists and problem solvers that know how to design brand identities, interactive experiences, architecture and physical spaces that connects story, creates value, and captivates audiences.

Let's Get in Touch

Peter McGowan

Co-Founder and Design Principal

Peter McGowan is one of the founders of PlainJoe and Storyland Studios. He is a champion of bringing clients’ unique stories to life by broadening their visual vocabulary beyond words and helping shape the cultural influence of their organizations.

Having worked with large-scale corporate clients such as Infinity, Nissan, IBM and Johnson & Johnson, as well as creative pioneers including Disney, Universal and Lego – Peter has a robust background in technology, art, and architecture which has equipped him to skillfully integrate these fields of design to tell immersive stories on the graphic and environmental stages. He is especially passionate about partnering with non-profit and cause-based organizations to reflect their missions with excellence and heart.

At the end of the day, he loves spending time with his wife, Jennifer, and their three kids making memories that usually involve Lego sets, Star Wars, Disney, or all three.
