Joel Gonzales

Technical Operations Manager, Assistant Design Manager

A typical day is never a typical day.
That’s because every day here at ER2 Image Group is something different, which I like. It keeps the job interesting trying to take a customer’s ideas and bring them to life by pushing the envelope from a design standpoint. My job touches pre-press and production issues, optimization of processes and solving workflow challenges.

I grew up surrounded by art and computers.

It was fortunate that I learned how to put the two together in high school and, well, the rest is history. I love keeping up with the latest in technology (I include playing video games as part of that too) and design to this day.

I have a black belt in Kenpo Karate.
All I’m saying is don’t mess with me.

I’m as much of a Chicago sports fan as it gets.
I was born and raised to love the Bears, Bulls, Cubs and Blackhawks.
