A creative problem solver, adept at crossing boundaries between print and digital, static and motion; TJ is able to distill communication challenges to their essence and translate strategic direction to a distinct visual language.
TJ passionately works on self directed projects that blur the line between art and design. She has worked on several multi-day projects including 100 Day Project and 36 Days of Type where she deliberately practices her craft as a designer.
When she is not designing TJ is an avid road cyclist and a silk screen artist.
