Advertising Images tell stories to transport consumers emotionally and change the way they perceive a brand. We visually craft these stories and then deliver them across relevant online and offline marketing channels.

Working with clients such as Adidias, Reebok, Starter, Fruit of the Loom and Live Nation we not only create award-winning graphics but can carry it through presentation to production by providing high end color separations.

The guy is a photo manipulative magician. A true artist and creative armed with a digital brush.

Kyle Grummun Creative Director, Tracy Locke

Tom is a world class talent and partner who I've personally worked with for over a decade now. His skill, style and attention to detail is unmatched and highly recommended.

David Hohman Executive Creative Director, Tracy Locke

Tom never ceased to amaze us. Whenever we had a serious retouching and illustration challenge, the answer many times quite honestly was, 'Just give it to Tom, he'll get it right the first time.'

Kyle Grummun Creative Director, Tracy Locke

Tom is one of the true greats when it comes to illustration. He consistently captures not only the likeness of the subject matter but the personality and soul as well.

Bill Littleton Sr. Director of Design, Fanatics Apparel

I started working with Tom and Justin in March of 2013. Their collective background in website and graphic design resulted in a great experience and phenomenal look to my website. I simply gave them my vision and they brought it to life.

Kevin Ollar President, Buck Addiction Hunting Club

Imagine working with someone for 15+ years without one issue coming up.
That's my experience with Tom. Whether solidifying the visual look of Pepsi's partnership with the NFL (a look they use to this very day), WWE pay-per-view posters or business pitch imagery, Tom, in his even-keeled way, always delivered for me. An absolute Pro.

Mike Muligano Vice President Creative, Timex

While at TracyLocke, I worked with Tom for over 8 years. Everything that Tom touches turns to gold. He was truly a part of our creative team, not just an outside vendor. There was never a time that Tom couldn’t handle a project and everything he delivered was above and beyond.
