The OBIE is arguably the highest honor an outdoor designer can receive.

Tom received the coveted award for a Campbell's Soup© design in 1992.

The billboard got the attention of 61,946 football fans as they hurried from their cars throughout Minneapolis to the HHH Metrodome for Super Bowl XXVI.

Real steam rose up from a giant bowl of soup, clearly visible as the water molecules froze in the 16 o air. The caption, "Minnesota's 'Souper Bowl'..." declared a sure victory for Campbell's©.

Tom currently lives and works in Chaska, MN. He draws on over 25 years of experience as a successful outdoor art director to deliver designs that effectively articulate his clients' marketing messages.

"My creative outlook is relatively simple: The outdoor industry has basic design formats to follow. With that foundation I strive to unify the message and graphics, using legible fonts, on top of a high-impact board. I like colors. I like contrast. The whole idea is to get people's attention, then sell them on a product or service."

Tom has worked for many of the largest Outdoor Advertising companies in the country, including: Naegele Outdoor, Clear Channel Outdoor, Schubert-Hoey Outdoor, Supreme Outdoor, Lincoln Outdoor, CBS Outdoor Mpls., Newman Outdoor and prides himself in the ability to create a communication environment that is effective and top of mind.

Though Tom's primary business is outdoor advertising design, he will tackle just about any design medium. Please take a few minutes to look through some of his work. Feel free to scribble a note and he will get back to you shortly.
