what they say

Josh Mait
VP of Brand Marketing, Gerson Lehrman Group.
“Tino and I have worked together for the last year. He has been an awesome creative partner…and we had a lot of fun together pushing change forward in our organization. There are several things that stand out about Tino that I most appreciate. Firstly, he is an extremely strong conceptual thinker and likes to push forward big ideas. Secondly, he is willing to do whatever it takes even if it requires getting into the weeds and being tactical. Lastly, he was thoughtful but forceful in pushing forward the work and knowing how to manage those moments when people are resistent to new ideas. Our team needed this and Tino brought some strength and taught the team how to stand behind their work.

Tino is a lot of fun. Very positive and always optimistic about the work. We had a very strong partnership.”

Andrew Green
Creative Director (Digital), Publicis Kaplan Thaler
“Is Tino working on this?” was always our first question. If the answer was ‘yes’ then we knew whatever we ended up presenting to the client would be smart, original and meticulously executed. If the answer was ‘no’, we’d pound the desk until he was. Few people get it. Tino is the one that does.”

Steve Baer
Creative Director, Publicis Kaplan Thaler
“Tino is a ‘thinker’. He approaches every assignment from many angles–all on strategy. Then after deciding on the best path, he’ll blow that idea out until it becomes obvious why it’s the best. He’s tireless, focused and a joy to work with.”

Matthew Anderson
Managing Director, Business Development, Publicis Kaplan Thaler
“Simply said, Tino is a great designer. He has a way of bringing both energy and sophistication to a project. He’s a strong conceptual thinker who likes to push the limits and explore new territory, but also understands how and when to work within certain parameters without being creatively hamstrung. In addition to his creative talents, Tino is a pleasure to work with. He is a true professional who manages his time and the team’s expectations effectively. He would be a great asset to any organization looking to add great talent to their team.”
