From rebranding initiatives to groundbreaking advertising campaigns, each project reflects Ty's commitment to pushing the boundaries of conventional design and storytelling.
After graduating with honors from Auburn University, WDE, Ty's career began working for CNN creating broadcast graphics. From there, Ty embarked on new creative adventures working with Omnicom/TBWA, Humanaut, and the Mars Agency. Ty crafted memorable branding materials for the 2010 Sundance Official Selection Documentary “8: The Mormon Proposition,” in addition to creating characters and illustrations for a beloved children’s book called “Confidence Is Key.” In 2018, Ty's career trajectory took a pivotal turn when acceptance into Chattanooga's Fire Academy came to fruition. After six dedicated months, Ty became a certified Firefighter and EMT resuming creative endeavors alongside fighting fires full-time for three years.
Ty believes there’s never a time when the team isn’t a vital part of the creative solution. Simply put, Ty is a visionary leader who understands that true innovation lies at the intersection of creativity, collaboration, and strategic insight.
Ty's "down time" involves hanging with family and friends, volunteering at the local fire station, crossfiting, writing, snuggling with dogs, and tinkering with tools.
