He has worked solo as TY Design & Illustration since 2010, collaborating directly with clients, design firms and advertising agencies across the U.S. and internationally. He is perhaps best known for his bold and colorful work for brands including Target, Cheerios, Odwalla, Pepsi, IBM, UPS, Dropbox, Facebook, The North Face, Cisco and GE. Additionally, he has branded several tech start-ups that were later acquired including Orchestra (makers of Mailbox, acquired by Dropbox), Grand St. (acquired by Etsy) and CloudUp (acquired by Automattic, makers of WordPress).
