Josh Gilmore

Focus: Web Development, Graphic Design, Branding, Consulting

My name is Josh Gilmore. I’m a Nashville-native with a passion for art. Whether it’s a guitar or a Photoshop paintbrush, you’ll almost always find me happily working with some form of art. Since my entire business is based on creative thinking, I can genuinely say I love what I do.

After about six years of working as a freelance Web designer, graphic designer and online marketer, I was ready to launch my own media firm. I had been sitting on the name “Modern Spark” throughout 2010, which became an official company in January 2011.

When I’m not working on Modern Spark projects, I love spending time with my awesome wife and my crazy dog. If we can eat a cheese pizza during an episode of Seinfeld, my day is complete. I’m a proud member and founder of the 10-year-old acoustic rock duo 20 Minutes to Park. I am also the co-founder of Nashville Guru, LLC, an online media publication.


Josh has worked with me on my websites over the past two years.  He has been a huge benefit to my business as he has taken my site to the next level.  Whether it was a small issue or a site overhaul, he is great about asking what we are needing, keeping us in the loop as he progresses, and then being available in the switch-over/after the switch to make sure everything is running smoothly.   I would recommend Josh for any project he believes he can handle. He has been completely honest and has consistently delivered.

“Over the last couple of years I have leaned on Josh and his company for a number of web and graphic design projects. He has helped design and host my company site as well as a couple of sites for the bands I represent, including www.bumpmusic.net. He has also provided graphic design services in designing advertisements, show posters, and marketing campaign pieces. He has a sharp eye for design, and the practical where-with-all to produce an effective and easy to manage site. Josh helps take the stress out of launching a new website. He is quick to respond to questions or provide support and is quick to fix any problems I might run into. He has been a pleasure to work with and I wholeheartedly recommend his services.”

“I hired Josh to do a first-ever concert poster for our city concert series. It was new ground for us and he came on good recommendation. I was THRILLED with the results. I gave him all my information, he asked a few questions to get an idea of what I was looking for and in a very short time period – I had my finished product. From the first draft it was easy to tell this would be a collector’s piece for our residents. The artwork is just what I had in mind (even though I didn’t actually know what I had in mind) and the cost and the time frame were very fair. I would definitely recommend Josh Gilmore for your next project!”

Josh and I connected from a mutual connection in Jan. 2007. Since then, Josh has not only been an amazing writer but his design skills are clean, precise, creative and perfect! Josh created and branded PearlyWrites with business cards, post cards, marketing collateral and recently our new Website. His attention to detail and listening to what the client wants is a strong quality which, to me, is very important. Josh’s talents are so high-class, I constantly get complimented on our logo, print marketing collateral and Website design. If a client asks for a graphic design referral, I always send them Josh’s way, as I know the job will be completed, and completed correctly in a timely manner. Thank you Josh for being awesome! “True Story!”

“Web site….defined, simplified, and impressive! Forming a new Homeowner’s Association, the board of directors faced the overwhelming task of creating a Web site for our residents and folks interested in living in our community. Josh Gilmore’s creative and perceptive interpretation of our ideas surpassed our expectations. You know you have made a stellar choice in Web developers when he makes your job look great! Our goal, first and foremost, was communication, however, Josh included important password protected information, photos, community links, upcoming events in our town, a message board, and even the weather forecast all presented in a workable format. Best of all, Josh’s responsiveness to any request gives us the confidence that the maintenance of our site is in talented and caring hands.”

“Josh Gilmore has the technical skills and creative talent you need to excel in the competitive field of website design. Better still, he has great instincts that enable him to translate, shape and refine my concepts and ideas into a clean, dynamic and artistically appealing presentation. Sensitive and responsive to my level of web design understanding, Gilmore anticipates situations, offers suggestions for improvements, and at all times demonstrates his personal commitment to each project and his understanding of the subject-matter. Gilmore executes decisions in a manner that inspires confidence as well as a tremendous amount of relief. He is an invaluable member of my team.”

“Thank you so much for your easy-going attitude and professionalism in working with us on our website. Your great suggestions and mock-ups for the website were so helpful and made the whole process so easy! You have created a far better site than I thought was possible on our budget. I’m looking forward to working with you more as the site evolves!”

“This is just a note to tell you how much your work helped my business. I have found your skills very helpful. You created a great website for us as well as professional email blasts and news releases. I found it very easy to work with you because you needed little direction and you gave us timely turnaround on the work. When we provide you with content your creativity was used to enhance the documents. I am very pleased with your work. Thank you very much.”

Our web site from Josh has made a difference in our business sales. We have had many hits from Google since he created our web site. We would highly recommend him and his work, as he is very professional and caring.”
