Twentyfive is my real last name. Spelled just like the number. All one word—no hyphen.

I’m a visual designer, occasional letter-er, type snob, and random movie quoter.

Originally from upstate New York, but I’ve called Seattle home since 2008. Went to RIT and received a degree in printing management—–upon graduation, decided to play and tour in punk bands for a while. In 2013, realizing I was never going to be the next Mike Watt or Henry Rollins, I went back to school at Seattle Central Creative Academy and brushed up on my design foundations while expanding on my skillset with UI/UX design. I graduated in 2015 and promptly went to work for Amazon. I left there in April of 2019 and am now the lead visual designer a 6–12 private school called Seattle Academy.

I’m always interested in taking on small design projects, talking about design, or movies and music. Let’s get a coffee and talk.

Inspiration, Interests, etc.

Drawing letters, Coffee, Herb Lubalin, Ghostbusters, Famous Monsters magazine, Records, Comicbooks, Massimo Vignelli, Punk, 80’s John Carpenter films, my friends, sarcasm, etc.
