Timothy Goodman
Designer, Illustrator, Author


Like many designers, Timothy Goodman is held down by rules and parameters that constantly stifle him. So how does he get his own sensibilities and his own voice into his work? Five years ago, and many 7-day weeks, he decided to redirect his design career and push himself into new, scary, and unexpected territory through drawing, writing, and personal projects on the internet. He made a decision to approach graphic design as a practice, not as a profession. Join Timothy as he talks about where he’s been in his career, where he’s at now, and how he’s constantly trying to redefine what it means to work in this industry.
