Tom Donnelly comes to GNU Group as a result of the merger of his professional practice, Donnelly Design, with the GNU Group. As the founder, president and design principal of Donnelly Design, Tom created a practice that was steeped in all areas of environmental branding, signage and graphic design. Through its existence, the firm was active in projects that included heathcare, corporate, civic, commercial and retail environments. In recent years Tom has been heavily engaged in signage and wayfinding projects for airports. Miami International, New York's JFK International, Los Angeles International, Sacramento International, San Bernardino International and Dallas Love Field are among the roadway and terminal facilities he has completed.

Tom Donnelly graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, CA.

One of Tom's earliest positions was as a designer in the GNU Group's office in Portland during the mid 1980s. He left the firm to pursue his professional growth in the Bay Area by joining Bill Englund & Associates. He subsequently became a partner and the firm became Englund + Donnelly. His entrepreneurial drive led him to found Donnelly Design. The merger with GNU brings Tom full circle to his roots and returns a phenomenal wealth of experience and invaluable capabilities to the firm.
