About Thom (tdcollins)
I’ve been a professional designer for over 25 years. I consider myself an artist and musician first as those are the two things that define me. Lucky for me, there was a way to make a living at what I truly love to do.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the absolute pleasure to work alongside some amazing people. Made some long-lasting friendships, won awards and recognitions including FWA, Ultrashock, Clio, Webby, Awwwards, One Show, and MITX. I was also featured in the Belding Design Annual for “Best Online Adverting Website” for my work with SCEA (Sony Computer Entertainment America). I had also been honored to receive a Certificate of Recognition from the California State Senate for “Volunteer of the Year”.
This portfolio is to showcase my work in music, art, and design. What I am not, is a writer. If I were, I would joyfully have that listed as a skill, and proudly showcase that fact in my portfolio. I’ve always had the utmost respect for proofers and copywriters. I am fully aware of my own limitations. I also won’t be writing in the third person either, it’s weird! It’s my portfolio, who the hell is talking then!?
