Currently working as a Principal UX Designer in Centennial, Colorado.
I am a full stack designer based out of Denver, CO. Jumping into the Wayback Machine... out of high school... I started my career as a fine artist and abstract acrylic painter. After completing my Associates Degree, I quickly began pursuing a career in Graphic/Web Design at the Art Institute of Colorado focusing on the basics of user experience, color theory, layout, typography and more. This built the foundation for what was to become my true passion, design & user experience.
Fast forward to present day, I now have over 15 years of hands-on real world experience in product design, rapid prototyping and front-end design systems. I have created websites and applications for a wide range of industries ranging from: apparel, health care, banking, oil and gas, and retail. I focus my attention on creating a blend of user driven design and clean semantic code.
This year I also started a YouTube channel to begin teaching others about design and user experience. You can check out my channel at YouTube.com/ThomasWicker.
Aside from all the work stuff... I am a father of two beautiful and healthy girls that keep me on my toes and my life well balanced and meaningful. I love spending every free moment that I have with them.
I am an avid cook and love to experiment with different cuisines. I enjoy a good Texas Hold'em cash game in Vegas, being out on the golf course, or cheering on the Broncos in full face paint. I love to travel when time permits, traveling gives you perspective and helps inspire my creativity.
I also love to learn, learn, and learn some more! Life is a short ride and my motto is to always be learning.
Thomas is truly a worker that loves his craft. I've seen him work harder than those hungry first year career employees, despite the fact that he has nothing to prove. I would highly recommend him in any role knowing fully that he will rise to the occasion, and enjoy every moment of it.

Thomas is a detail oriented designer with great imagination. He was responsible for the majority of our custom CRM system and managed the UI/UX for just about every front end project at Cricket. He's such a valuable member of our contracting team that we brought him on full time at Cricket. I would highly recommend him for any UI/UX work.

I was brought on to Thomas's development team in late 2013 and with his guidance as team-lead we successfully delivered a robust, Enterprise User-Interface for Cricket Wireless. Thomas possessed excellent leadership skills as a project-manager, and as a colleague he was essential in excelling the project above and beyond the initial scope.

Thomas is very adept at quickly learning what we needed from a graphics perspective, despite hazy directive. He always delivered on-time or ahead of time and his work was top quality. I look forward to asking Thomas to work on future projects...
