Our award winning team of skilled professionals are leaders in their industry…

Phil Nannay: President

Behind those boyish good looks and clean-cut exterior is a sharp and demented business mind! This marketing major from West Chester University had a cushy job at an insurance company, but like his partner,he had a burning desire to be his own boss and build a company from the ground up.

Phil runs the day to day operations at Applehead Factory, which include the contract negotiations, logistics, financing, marketing, production & planning. Phil also moonlights as a board member of Zhang Sah, a non-profit after school program that uses eastern philosophies (martial arts) to teach at-risk youth, values and self-reliance.

Joe DiDomenico: Art Director

With 20 years of design experience, it’s safe to say Joe knows his trade. He’s spent time as a freelance illustrator for DC comics, Running Press and the NFL. He cut his teeth at design studios that had Simon & Schuster, Lucas Books, Jim Henson books and Kenner on their client rosters.

Joe  has also worked as the Assistant Art Director at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. In late 2003 Joe decided to strike out on his own and form Applehead Factory Design Studio with his partner. Along with his duties there Joe teaches at his Alma Mater, University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
