What’s up? I’m Thomas Wilson, a visual artist with a focus in photography, branding, and design in the food & drink industry, specifically craft beer, here in Houston.

The #chuglife chose me.

I’m a Houston, TX based designer and content producer totally immersed in my role as a member of a global community (smart ass for I learned how to get shit done on the road). I’ve been making noise most notably in the craft beer & culinary world via a variety of projects and commissions for companies and publications.

A professional career that started in 2008 with freelance photojournalism and sports photography has grown into a creative consulting brand with a focus in visual art and direction.

 
 

A Virginia-grown country boy with a well-traveled set of parents, I was shown the ropes to this “the world is bigger than your block” thing pretty early on thanks to the different facets of culture I observed and experienced that helped shape my vision. These experiences have helped to hone my creative vision, providing the foundation of a creative process that centers around the WHY and less about adding flair which results in some of the more unique niche branding, visual, and written content. To hack that mass of thought down to a more digestible nugget, my visual style starts and ends with placing the viewer or consumer into my seat, seeing things through my perspective, with the dopest set of glasses I can grab.

As both a child of the technological age and a self-proclaimed geek, I’m always seeking out ways to further marry technical expertise with a vibrant and minimalist style grounded in realism. Significant commissions range from exhibit and commercial imagery for Mitsubishi, the Microsoft Store and other clientele to branding and social campaigns for Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce, Buffalo Bayou Brewing Company, and others.
