A queer design warrior, Billy Jo infuses his creative concepts and designs with a marked perspective ideal for working with our progressive brands, organizations, and issue advocacy groups. As an artist, he primarily focuses on mixed media and illustration that celebrate queer issues and subject matter. Bullied in his adolescence for being gay, the passion propelling Billy Jo’s work is intense and led to several awards in his young career. As a professional at Fifth Influence, he channels this same intensity, dedication, and style into his work for our clients.
Billy Jo is a graduate of Edinboro University. He received a BFA in Applied Media Art with a concentration in graphic and interactive design and minors in both art history and printmaking. He resides in Pittsburgh, PA and is LGBTQ activist.
