Design impacts us on daily basis, whether our audience knows this or not, it is our responsibility to craft unique experiences and moments which can make someone’s day better in the smallest of ways. This is a code Thomas Gardner lives by and has changed the way he collaborates and design with and for others.
Thomas Gardner is a storyteller communicating through experiential graphic design. Thomas is a multi-disciplinary designer specializing in design centered around branding and environmental graphics. As a recent graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design he wanted to pursue environmental design because it is like no other form of graphic design. A different set of rules apply while no two people will have the same experience. It reminds him of something a friend once told him, “We are all just in the background of each other’s lives.”
Thomas Gardner is still growing and learning from every experience he has, whether it be from people or places. Thomas hopes to one day cultivate these experiences into his own design agency and explore a whole new side of design. Thomas knows he mentioned this but fried chicken is life, and has been since he was about five years old, and the same goes for an appreciation of design.
