I love computer hardware, especially the expensive stuff! I've spent years, slowly upgrading my custom desktop, funded by my part-time work. Not only is a killer gaming rig, it effortlessly provides the ultimate workstation experience for maximum productivity and work efficiency.

Graphic Design

I was introduced to graphic design and photo-manipulation during high-school. I'd play about with images from video games and edit them in Microsoft Paint. After following tutorials online, I downloaded GIMP (GNU Image Manipluation Program), a free image editing software. GCSE Information Technology introduced me to the Adobe Create Suite. This is when I discovered Photoshop & Illustrator.


Brand Evolution

Starting back in high-school with 'ThePhotoFXPert', my personal brand design changed several times. This alias saw me through the most progression as I'd started to use Maxon Cinema 4D for creating 3D renders. I produced graphics for people online and won graphic design contests. A few years later I attempted to re-brand to 'ProfoundGraphics' and 'ZettaGraphics', but finally settled on 'TomPlumDesigns' as I grew older and matured.

TomPlumDesigns Responsiveness

This is my final brand. TomPlumDesigns isn't a legitimate business per-se. I simply do it in my free time because I enjoy it. Freelance work can bring in money every now and then, but I don't pursue it.

Gym & Lifestyle

January of 2015. I made what was probably the biggest and best change I've ever made.


Attending the Gym

I started going to the gym. It started as just casual weight training, but a few months in, I was hooked. Not only was I becoming physically fitter and stronger, I started correcting my diet to aid my lifting. This ultimately bettered my mental health, so I was less stressed at work and university. I drank mostly water, less rubbish, so my dental health increased. It literally changed my life, for the better!

I then started taking the weight training seriously and began cutting and bulking through the seasons. Below is my body-weight over time during that period, data from MyFitnessPal.
