Here comes the judge.
This year’s judge is Tim Harrison of Milwaukee, WI. He is a curious, disciplined, and friendly creative director with over 15 years of experience working at global agencies and brands in New York City.
Although his professional career has been rooted in the digital arena, such as websites, social media, and video, he admires all mediums and welcomes the opportunity to luxuriate in more traditional art forms, like painting and photography. He received a BFA in Visual Design from Loyola University Chicago (2004). After graduating college, he spent two years in Spain, harnessing his art direction skills through Miami Ad School in Madrid (2010). After 12 years in New York City, he returned to the Midwest to run his creative agency in Milwaukee. In addition to working as a creative professional, Harrison has taught visual design courses at the Academy of Arts University in San Francisco and participated in various portfolio reviews for young professionals while in NYC.
Peoples Choice Award
The public can vote for a People’s Choice Award for their favorite entry. Visitors to the gallery can cast their ballots at TNPS from April 5–19. The People’s Choice award will be announced at that time.
