Joel Barbour

Joel Barbour

Owner / Creative Director

Born and raised in The PNW with no plans on ever leaving, Joel founded The Great PNW in 2013 when he couldn't find an apparel company that expressed his love for The NorthWest. He spends most of his days brainstorming what's next for the company and constantly replying to emails with "Sorry for the delayed reply...". A graphic designer to his core, Joel oversees all creative that gets put out into the world. When not corralling everything at the office, Joel spends most of his time corralling 3 little munchkins who keep him equally as busy as The Great PNW.

Mike Miller

Mike Miller

Creative Producer

This native Idahoan loves potatoes, skateboarding, snowboarding, photography and making things on the computer. Mike has been with The Great PNW since day one and helped launch the company on Kickstarter in 2013. To say Mike is a swiss-army knife when it comes to all things creative would be an understatement. When he's not pumping out killer work for us, you can find him filming skateboarding and being a rad dad to his two beautiful children.

Derek Landers

Art Director

A lifelong PNW resident, he's been designing for over 23 years. His passion for design shows in everything he creates for us from shirts, stickers, catalogs, etc. When he's not here at The Great PNW HQ he's living it up with his family or at the community print shop he co-founded, Spokane Print & Publishing Center. He also dabbles in indie filmmaking with some of his closest friends. With what little downtime he does have it's typically spent designing, thinking about design, looking at design, or putting his feet up at home and listening to some good vinyl.
