Jeff Thomas is one member of a talented team that makes us a true graphic design agency.

Q: What do you do at Vela? 

The short answer is graphic design. The less-short answer is I find creative ways to help our clients achieve their business goals. That could mean anything from logo design to website creation to retouching photos to compositing images. Pretty much a bit of everything. I also serve as the sole in-office male opinion, a distinction that I do not take lightly.

Q: What did you do previously?  

Before joining the team here at Vela, I worked as a full-time freelance designer and photographer. Prior to that I was the creative director for a technology start-up. 

Q: What do you want clients to know about you? 

 I recognize and value the trust our clients place in me (us) to give their vision “legs.”  It’s super rad to have the opportunity to build true partnerships and bring ideas to life. 

Q: Why did you want to work at Vela?

I initially started working with the team in a freelance capacity and was a little taken aback by the group’s talent, focus, drive and energy. As the number of projects we worked on together grew, we decided that we liked each other pretty well and we made it official.

Q: What’s your hidden talent/ability/superpower? 

I don’t know if this counts as a talent or ability, but I can operate an ice resurfacer (otherwise known as a Zamboni machine). It’s not as easy as it looks.
