I'm an Atlanta based, mono-lingual, coffee-loving, designer with aspirations to one day own my very own face-towel steamer. I love leather bound books and have a some-what overbearing desire to draw pictures of food playing musical instruments.
I'm currently based just north of Atlanta, but drop me a line if you'd like to work together or just want to strike up a conversation about current events, interesting local weather, or why the designated hitter is the worst thing to ever happen to America.
My philosophy is: "Good design is obvious, great design is transparent."
Joe Sparano said that, but I use it as a voice in my head when I start a project. Your users, your target market, your co-workers all have specific needs and demands on a project. Sometimes those demands align, most times they do not.
My job is to find the path, whether it be by a logo, around a website, or through a illustration that best fits everyone who will walk it.
The most effective path is the one that doesn't require the walker to question what turn to take or where the path leads. The most effective one treats you like you already know the endpoint, and lets walking become an experience, not a chore.
I love dogs, coffee, and scotch. My name's Tom.
