Thom Hart Creative Director
Whether it’s overseeing design, working with copywriters, determining brand standards, meeting with clients, presenting campaign concepts, or just cracking a few jokes, Thom is the proverbial captain of the creative ship at Aqua. While Thom wears many different hats, that doesn’t mean he’s big headed. However, it is his role as a graphic designer where Thom truly excels. His attention to the most minute level of detail and subtle design choices have resulted in award-winning works for tourism, winery, airport, and economic development clients to name a few. Outside of work, Thom enjoys spending time with his family, and is an avid fan of music, especially late 80s hair metal.
B.A. in Graphic Design with Minor in Business (University of Central Florida)
