Peter McGowan is the founder (along with his brother Mel), President & Chief Storyteller for PlainJoe and Storyland Studios. He is a champion of bringing clients’ unique stories to life by broadening their visual vocabulary beyond words and helping shape the cultural influence of their organizations.

Having worked with large-scale corporate clients such as Infinity, Nissan, IBM, and Johnson & Johnson, as well as creative pioneers including Disney, Universal, and Lego–Peter has a robust background in technology, art, and architecture which has equipped him to skillfully integrate these fields of design to tell immersive stories on the graphic and environmental stages.
