After Graduating, Tom went on to publish one of his books as well as starting a new business.
Tom’s Design Work
“In my design work, I like to create design solutions which are unique and memorable. I like to provoke thoughts and emotions.
“In my book, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, humour and photography are combined to create a visual for everyday metaphors and idioms. This coffee-table book is captivating and fun, while at the same time creating an emotional reaction. It is designed to captivate the viewer and to have them think about the illustrated metaphor.
“In my design piece logo, for Moresby cartography, the logo reflects the delicate hand-crafted nature of their work. The logo has a hand-crafted feel reflecting the ethos of the company. It is memorable yet sophisticated, and can be applied to any collateral.”
