Make Day with Paul Thompson

Who said intro videos can’t be awesome?

We’re participating in Make Day by Unsplash as a way for us to create, inspire, and in this case introduce our newest Junior Designer, Paul Thompson.

A Bit About Paul

My name’s Paul Thompson, I’m 20 years old, born and raised in Tampa, Florida. I got into design by absolute chance. I went to Tampa Bay Technical High School and spent my first year hating the business program. Thankfully I switched to the Commercial Art Academy which is where I learned the basics of Graphic Design. I sucked at first, but I loved the challenge of learning new techniques and the idea of creating; it just kind of took me over. I bounced around a few colleges starting at HCC, jumping across the bay to SPC and eventually jumping on a plane to Denver for RMCAD (Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design). There was something about school that I felt didn’t resonate with me so i decided to take what I had learned and become a self-taught designer. Fast forward 7 months and here I am!

Me currently, I love my family. Blood related or not, family is at my core and is what I love most on this Earth. Photography and Videography have become a place of inspiration for me as a creative outlet apart from design, so that’s been awesome to experiment with. I like to play a lot of sports. I played baseball for about 12 years, basketball here and there but this last year I’ve been playing nothing but soccer. I’m happy with the creative path I’m on; I’m looking forward to venturing on in video but I honestly don’t know where I want to be years from now and I’m ok with that. Lastly, one of my top life goals that I’ve accomplished has been losing over a hundred pounds going from 300lbs to 193lbs.
