My name's Tom Anders Watkins. I'm a half Finnish half English largely self-taught Designer/Creative/Art director, currently travelling around Asia working on various freelance projects. Ex AD on Nike @Wieden+Kennedy London.
I've worked as a freelance Illustrator/Designer/Creative for clients Including : Visa, Innocent Smoothies, Spotify, Adobe and Airbnb. Before that, starting when I was at high school, I worked as a freelance logo designer successfully branding over 100+ businesses.
I also tour the world and shoot films for travel companies in what little spare time I can get. Peru/Iceland/Thailand/Morocco
To fund my creative ventures, I not only freelance, but create fonts, and sell design templates/photography filters on Creativemarket.com. I had two of the top selling products of 2014.
