RIP Holding Page

After three years of being on hold, someone has finally answered. Massive thanks to Mike Stephens for building the site—he's done an amazing job (as per usual). I hope you enjoy having a look through the site. I'm not quite sure what else I should write, so here's some copy I stole from my About page…

This is the portfolio of graphic designer, Tom Heaton MISTD. The site will hopefully act as a catalyst for creativity—giving me a kick up the backside to produce more portfolio-worthy designs—and at the very least, showcase my recent work. There are a mixture of projects featured; including freelance, self-initiated and some from my time at Raw.

I am concept-focussed with a love of wit and intelligence in design. I lean more towards Crouwel than Carson, favouring strong grids and pristine typography. Simplicity is harmony.

The holding page can still be found here.
