Loughlin Joseph is a management bureau for editors and writers based in New York City. Founded by Ruari Mahon in 2021, we represent a body of language artists with roots in global publishing across style, culture, design, architecture, and business interests.

Linguists have long known that thoughts don’t just shape language, language shapes thoughts. Today brands are micro-media platforms in themselves, yet narrative remains underserved and overlooked. Products and imagery no longer speak alone. Our artists enable companies to articulate a distinguished, consistent voice through an approach that is integrated with values, identity, and positioning.
