Thomas Kelly


Thomas’ childhood obsession with visual arts developed into a love for all things graphic. Inspired by conceptual artists such as Barbara Kruger, he undertook a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication at UTS. Illustration and printmaking were soon traded for whitespace and bold typography.

Born and raised in Sydney, Thomas is adept in data visualisation, publication design, and typography, and feels proud to work in a company committed to an ethical and sustainable future.

He loves to travel, particularly to the colder parts of the globe. His happy place? A freezing mountain, with a set of skis and a camera. Things don’t always go to plan, though. While skiing out of bounds in Hakuba, Japan. A broken ski and a cracked helmet resulted in a very long, cold (and dark) trek down the slopes!
