About

Thomas Kugler is a graphic & web designer with formal training and professional experience in the theory, concepts, and principles of graphic design, and award-winning web design and development skills. He has versatility in various disciplines, from print to web to mobile, with a grasp of the technical challenges of all.

A graphic and web designer since 2007, entering this industry was a career change for Thomas, following concurrent previous careers in film, music, and theatre in Los Angeles. A 2008 graduate of Center for Digital Imaging Arts (CDIA) at Boston University (Washington, DC campus), he was awarded a scholarship to CDIA after winning the SkillsUSA national championship in Web Design for 2007. This also earned him a Professional Webmaster certification from the World Organization of Webmasters (WOW).

Following his graduation from CDIA, Thomas relocated to his hometown of Washington, DC, and has since worked for a number of associations. These include the National Head Start Association (NHSA), Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), and Amercan Society of Association Executives (ASAE). This latter engagement has been a longterm, ongoing position with ASAE since 2011 as Website Administrator (Designer/Developer/Strategist).

During his tenure at ASAE, Thomas has grown and expanded upon both his design and development skills. With a number of websites winning awards from Web Marketing Association (WMA), these achievements have been widely recognized. In 2014, he led the design and development of ASAE Site's 2014 Responsive Redesign (link is to demo site, live site was overwritten in 2016). In 2013, he led front-end UI/UX design & development of ASAE's e-commerce and proflile platforms.

Thomas also maintains a freelance client base, providing services across the full spectrum of graphics for both print and digital media. His skills and experience range from logos, to branding and identity, to illustration, to fully-developed websites. He welcomes new clients, and looks forward to bringing his best to your project.
