Thomas GillandI have been drawing and designing most of my life, but professionally since 2004. I returned to school after 12 years in the airlines and graduated from Park University with a BA degree in Graphic Design. An intership led to a full time job working as graphic designer and product manager with the consumer products company, Top Innovations, Inc. Here, I gained extensive experience in how a product evolves from its early development stages, through its marketing promotion and packaging stages, before hitting the store shelves.

I am currently working as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator, from 2008-2012 I was contracting with R2FACT Product Development as the Art Director — wearing several hats, including; Website design, developing business identity and marketing materials for R2FACT, and worked closely with R2FACT’s customers — developing 2D and 3D product visualizations, product sell sheets, product animations, logos and packaging designs.

Since 2006, I have continued to work in association with InterMark3 Inc., which is an International business development company. My responsibility here is the design and production for the bi-monthly, on-line news publication IBNewsmag, along with design and implementation of the IBNews email blast. In addition, I maintain the website as well as collaborate with InterMark3 on other projects.

Before working as a full time graphic designer and illustrator, I studied aviation at the University of North Dakota and worked in the airline industry as an Aircraft Dispatcher and Flight Control Supervisor from 1990-2002. Here I learned about urgency and attention to detail while managing several aircraft at a time.
