Creator

Thomas Cargill

Growing up in England I was always creatively driven, and so naturally I gravitated towards the visual arts while in school. At some point during the final years of secondary school, a friend of mine mentioned graphic design to which I replied, ‘what’s that’? From that moment on, I fell deeper and deeper into my passion that today has become my career as a graphic designer.

I have worked in printing agencies, alongside other designers in studios, and have freelanced as well. But in recent years, I’ve found a lot of fulfilment within creating educational content based around graphic design on my YouTube channel. Spreading knowledge and seeing people genuinely excel because of things they’ve learned from me is simply awesome.
