Tom White : 9 Surf Studios

Art direction : design : typography : illustration

9 Surf is a boutique multidisciplinary studio specializing in branding, design, and illustration. I create visual solutions for brands, companies, agencies, studios, and publishers in healthcare, business, science and technology, electronics, education, sports, food and beverage, games and entertainment, retail, and editorial.

My hybrid approach combining art design and illustration allows me more diversity in the creative process. I draw on the disciplines of design, typography, 2D and 3D illustration, and photography to any degree appropriate for the message. I am classically trained, yet fully immersed in digital media and am one of the early pioneers of digitally based image design.
