Let me take a moment and introduce myself.


Letter T Graphics is me, T Carter.

I graduated from Colorado State University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, graphic design emphasis. I have been professionally designing since 2004.

I worked for 8 years as an advertising designer for the Greeley Tribune in Greeley, Colorado. From there, I spent 3 and a half years as the art director and senior designer for Parelli Natural Horsemanship in Pagosa Springs, followed by a year as the graphics technician for High Plains Library District back in Greeley.

I have also continued to pursue graphic design as a freelance designer outside of my daily responsibilities since graduating from college.

My professional and freelance career have exposed me to a broad range of projects, from branding and identity, to multi-page magazine layout, packaging and experiential design through directional signs and banners.
