Catch Josh Loebner
Josh is a shining example of the power of inclusion and how it can be used to create real change. As Global Head of Inclusive Design at Wunderman Thompson, he is working with some of the biggest brands to embed inclusion within every process and create inspiring work. He leads a roster of disabled co-creators for a truly inclusive creative process.
Most recently, the Inclusive Experience Practice worked alongside Wunderman Thompson Peru to provide world-class brand support and brand experience for Augmental's MouthPad^ – an inspiring inclusive design innovation that opens up a new way for people with disabilities to interact with the world – which won the Innovation Grand Prix at Cannes Lions in 2023.
Josh’s work with Wunderman Thompson’s IExP follows other incredible achievements. He was recognized among the Adweek Creative 100 for 2023, as an agency leader paving the way forward. Josh has been named one of the honorees of the Diversability D-30 list, which recognizes the unique accomplishments of the most impactful members of the disabled community worldwide. Josh serves on the TravelAbility advisory board, and was honored to receive a Black Forest cuckoo clock from the German National Tourist Board for his conversations focusing on accessible travel.
He received his doctoral degree from Clemson University, where his research focused on greater disability inclusion within integrated marketing campaigns, and the advertising creative process. He is fully blind in one eye, legally blind in the other, and clearly sees the best in everyone.
