Joshua Cohen founded Fat Pencil Studio in 2004. With degrees in Engineering and Architectural Design, plus years of practical experience working in the transportation, energy, and construction industries, Joshua brings a wealth of technical knowledge to every project.

The company name “Fat Pencil” refers to the traditional drawing instrument used by architects during the early stages of conceptual design—when it’s important to get a range of ideas on paper quickly, and avoid getting bogged down in the details of a single approach. This same philosophy guides Fat Pencil Studio’s graphics work. We consider a variety of tools before selecting a strategy to meet a project's communication goals.

Prior to founding Fat Pencil Studio, Mr. Cohen spent six years working in the aerospace industry creating spacecraft illustrations, technical writing and diagrams for marketing collateral, newsletters and websites.
