About the studio

Hello. My name is Thomas Todd. I’m a freelance graphic designer and creative director based in El Paso, TX. Creatively Wise is my home studio.

Background

I don’t consider myself a guru. And I’m certainly not a rock star, ninja or (insert buzz word here). I’m just an every day guy doing what he loves every day. I guess you could say my career chose me. For as long as I can remember, a genuine passion for art and design has been a big part of who I am. Early on I knew I would be doing it in one form or another for the rest of my life.

Over the past 15 years, I’ve gained diverse experience working in a fast-paced, results-oriented agency environment. From concept to completion, I’ve worked on a wide array of projects ranging from brand identity and collateral design to web design and development. I’m a self-starter who takes pride in my ability to visually communicate ideas and messages, as well as manage multiple projects under tight deadlines.

Currently you’ll find me working as a senior graphic designer for the University of South Florida. I also occasionally do freelance work for my own clients. Outside of work, I’m a husband, father, runner, brand enthusiast, music lover, optimist, and a genuinely nice guy. Want to learn more? Feel free to say hello.
