Howdy, I’m James Dalman
Designer, content creator, military veteran, and founder of Happy Joe Inc.
I’ve been a designer for 28 years and have partnered with billion dollar brands to mom and pop shops around the globe. I’ve had the honor to do work for HTC, Nike Golf, BMW, NASCAR, Chicago Bears, Green Bay Packers, L.A. Kings, Eskimo Joes, Arnold Palmer, Michael Hyatt, Andy Sernovitz, and Honda. In 1995, I designed several of the top selling ball caps in the entire nation.
While my specialty is creating memorable brand identities and effective User Experiences, I am well versed in a variety of skills including content development, WordPress, and online marketing. I speak and write regularly on entrepreneurship, branding, design, and freelancing.
When I’m not partnering with some of the most amazing clients in the world, I’m helping U.S. military veterans build profitable and sustainable businesses through my non-profit organization, Happy Joe.
I’ve been married to my beautiful wife and best friend, Donetta, for 24 years, and we have two awesome kids, Kayla and Tyler, who are now involved in working with Dalman Designs.
