Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Thomas POROSTOCKY

Previously the creative lead at a the magazines I.D. and Seed, I currently run a small studio here in New York. It's a multi-disciplinary outfit, but the work tends to focus on mostly branding, art-direction, illustration and lately, infographics. I also do quite a bit of on-site art/creative direction at agencies like Ogilvy (working on IBM), Collins (Amex and Lenovo), R/GA (Nike), and Carbone-Smolan (TIAA-CREF).

My clients include: Wired, New York Times, IBM, Ford, Fast Company, Esquire, UCBerkeley, Men's Health, Car&Driver, Fortune, Business Week, Nature, The Atlantic, DonQ, E*Trade.
