Currently working as a Design Director 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 design, 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, user research and interviews, design systems, and more. I have worked with a wide range of companies from Fortune 500 to start-ups. I've also worked across a wide range of industries: apparel, health care, banking, energy markets, retail, and more.
I'm not as active as I used to be on YouTube, but I started a channel awhile back to begin teaching others and sharing my experience around design and UX. YouTube.com/ThomasWicker. I definitely have plans to continue this moving forward. I have had such positive feedback from others in the community ❤️
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. Although they have now moved out and on to start their own lives, I love spending every free moment that I can 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. Seeing the world gives you perspective and helps inspire creativity on a different level.
Recently I have jumped back into creating fine art again, and very recently NFTs. The NFT community aside from all the tech bros and overnight pump and dumps... is an amazing place that has given the small art community a place to shine again. Try not to be so ultra biased up front and give it a fair shake.
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...
