ANDREW THOMPSON

Fun and energetic creative who lives and breathes apparel & graphic design. With my strong design and collaborative skills, I create meaningful and captivating work that excels in not only the design/experience, but the objective of the project and client expectations. Strong experience with art directing photo shoots, collaborating with designers and presenting work to clients.
