Thomas Porostocky started his design career in the NYC magazine industry. After realizing he was far too independent for a cushy office job, he boldly set out to start his own studio… a week before the 2008 global financial crisis. Despite this impeccable timing, that company has evolved into the The TOM Agency he runs today. Thomas has a Bachelor of Design from ACAD (Calgary) and a Masters from the School of Visual Arts (NYC). He was included in Print Magazine’s Top 20 Under 30, and has had his name and work appear in numerous Design Annuals, Books and Art exhibits. When he’s not designing, he’s lusting after cars he’ll never own.
