Mike Joyce was born in 1972 in Upstate New York. Thirty years later Mike founded Stereotype Design in New York City, specializing in projects for the entertainment industry. He has designed album packaging for established artists such as Iggy Pop, Morphine, The Lemonheads, Fall Out Boy, Natalie Merchant, David Sedaris, and Aretha Franklin. His work has been shown in exhibitions by the AIGA, the Type Directors Club, the Hofstra Museum, the One Club, the Art Directors Club’s first Young Guns show, and selected for the Permanent Collection of the Library of Congress. Mike lives and works in the West Village of New York City and refuses to design wedding invitations.
In 2012 he launched Swissted, a personal project combining his love of Swiss graphic design and punk rock by redesigning old show flyers into hundreds of 'International Style' typographic posters.
