I’m Tom, a designer living in Mortlake, London with my wife Sue, our little girls Tabitha and Polly, and our budgie Buddy.
I grew up in Biddulph near Stoke-on-Trent, and moved to London when I started at Goldsmiths College. After my degree show, I got my first job at Clear Channel in 2006 where I designed billboards and bus shelter posters, before moving to Orange in 2007 – which became Everything Everywhere – to design, art direct and manage brand identity.
In 2011 I moved to City Hall to head up the design team, and for three years I directed integrated campaigns for the Mayor of London. Then, in March 2014 I joined Topman to direct digital creative and to lead its photography and digital design studios.
In November 2016 I joined Sainsbury’s as a Design Director in its Digital Experience team.
This blog shows the work I’m doing as it goes live – you can see more on my website.
