Thomas has 20 years of design expe­ri­ence, spanning the beginning of desktop publishing to the maturing of digital design and production.

His career includes a 14-​​year stint as senior art direc­tor at Adams & Longino, an adver­tis­ing agency in Greenville, NC, where he focused on print and design for clients such as Grady-​​White Boats, Paul Mann Custom Boats, Kadey-​​Krogen Yachts, Veneer Technologies, and Greenville Convention and Visitors Bureau. His work as part of the agency team gathered many local and state Addy awards, Best of Show, Best of Print, and Best of Show for business and consumer cam­paigns. He is accom­plished in the core dis­ci­pline of design, and has added to that core a strong skillset in pre-​​press, retouch­ing and color cor­rec­tion. 

Lately, Thomas has focused on learning front-end web development as a natural outgrowth of print-based design work, and has become accomplished in that area also, contracting website design and build for clients like Parrott Canvas, Rocky Russell Builders, Lever and Russell Real Estate, Graham, Nuckolls and Brown, Grill Bully, the University of North Carolina General Alumni Association, Northern Light Paddlesports, Hilltop Properties, Kayak Ways, Op5 Creative, and Comma. 

If he's not pushing pixels on his Mac or practicing Tae Kwon Do, you'll likely find him out on the water exploring traditional Greenlandic kayaking skills.
