TOM MESQUITTA

I’m a designer / photographer with over 12 years experience in branding and image making. I’d consider myself well versed across all disciplines of print with a dash of digital for good measure. I have a deep belief in ideas and an anal approach to typography that underpins my craft. I drink whisky, take photos, ride bicycles and dangle precariously from climbing walls. I am most definitely a dog person.

 

All work showcased on this site has been produced by myself, or as part of a collaboration where credited. Projects have been delivered under my own company or when working for others, and in each case both credits and or copyright are displayed accordingly.
