Introducing the latest Technick Designer: Joshua Sanchez of Visual Vantage

It’s my pleasure to introduce Joshua Sanchez as the newest addition to the artist team at Technick Designs. He has a really impressive design portfolio on Cargo Collective consisting of logo designs, branding initiatives, and beautiful real estate photography. He is based out of South Florida and will work with Technic Designs remotely.

Josh has true artistic talent, and Technic Designs is very grateful for all his help, consultation, and designs.
