Joseph Harwood


Joseph Harwood is an avant-garde, gender non confirming artist and creative director who grew up in Brighton and Hove, England. Beginning a career as a fashion model at fifteen, his distinctive androgynous style opened up the opportunity to work into more creative outlets where makeup talent became evident.

Creating the first content of its kind from an LGBT creator on Youtube, Harwood became the first-ever transgender winner of a reality-based talent competition when he entered Simon Cowell's the You Generation competition, the first Got Talent style show for social media. His creative ideas won the attention of major publications and cosmetic brands, who have featured his story and art.

He has been progressively influencing the beauty industry by consulting on inclusivity with corporations ranging from PUIG to L'Oreal, as well partnering with L'Oreal initiatives brand Jecca Blac on their rebrand and the first JH product launch, which has gone on to critical acclaim. He has since diversified into a new arena, developing a platform entitled Agitprop, dedicated to travel, wellness, food and diversity which is launching in the Winter of 2019.
