Back in 2015, I created my own graphic design company. I named it, "10tongorilla," hoping to empower and inspire confidence in my small business clients, who generally don't have access to the same level of design as their larger competitors. These days, I'm a pretty well established graphic designer here in Nashville, TN, with almost a decade of experience under my belt. I've had the pleasure of working on countless projects for over 40 businesses and brands across the country. I have a strong love and appreciation for Music City, so I really enjoy knowing I've had some small part in the success of its local business scene.
You might say my style borrows inspiration from the gritty '90s skateboarding scene, the DIY-ridden world of rock and roll, and the lovable weirdos of Instagram's graphic design community. I do my best to channel this odd assortment of influences into my own tightly executed brand of hand drawn illustration, clean corporate branding and everything in between. Whatever the project, I always stress the importance of useful design. Besides, you can get as creative with a design as you want. But if your client can't use it to their benefit, then what's the point, right?
