I’m Tim, and I love design.
I art direct award-winning consumer, custom-published, and closed-circulation magazines for national and targeted audiences. My design and redesign efforts have won multiple WPA Maggies and Folio Ozzie awards. Smart Business magazine and PCComputing magazine won National Magazine Award Ellies while I was an art director on staff. I have managed all levels of magazine publishing creative direction. I illustrated the New York Times bestselling book "How Computers Work" and  “How Digital Photography Works”. One of my greatest professional loves is shooting racing photography which I have for both Corvette Fever and American Thunder magazines. In my career I have seen a wide variety of projects: Logos, informational graphics, marketing design, POP signage, print ads, posters, event merchandise, print product design. I am incredibly motivated and wake up every morning with a passion for telling a story through words, type, and imagery.
