Tom White : 9 Surf Studios

Typographic design & illustration

9 Surf is an award-winning boutique multidisciplinary studio specializing in typographic design and illustration for print, video and the web. I create visual solutions for brands, companies, agencies, studios, and publishers in healthcare, business, science and technology, electronics, education, government, sports, food and beverage, games and entertainment, retail, and editorial.

My approach to visual storytelling seamlessly combines design and illustration allowing me more options when developing creative solutions. I draw on a hydrid of letterform, 2D and 3D illustration, and photography to complete my palette. I've won many awards including ADC, SPD, and lots of others, along with category-specific publishing awards including a recent first place in the New York Book Show.
