GRAPHIC DESIGNER, Al Best
WHEN DID YOU START WORKING AT TSG?
WHERE ARE YOU FROM?
Bit of a hard question to answer! I was born in western New York, but my mom was in the military, so we moved around for 15 years of my life until settling outside of Clarksville, Tennessee.
WHAT DO YOU DO AT TSG HQ?
I design the awesome guides.
HOW DID YOU ARRIVE AT TSG?
I was on a frantic job hunt, believing I may not find a career where I love what the company does and do what I love, when I came across the listing. I couldn’t believe I didn’t know about TSG until then! After checking out the company I got crazy excited, I applied with fingers crossed, and here I am!
WHAT'S ON YOUR DESK?
A stack of guides picked out by our Design Manager for inspiration, and a horse charm I acquired when I visited Hong Kong back in 2014.
WORDS TO LIVE BY?
Do it now. Sometimes “later” becomes “never.”
FAVORITE VACATION DESTINATION?
Pretty much anywhere in France, and pretty much anywhere I haven’t ventured yet!
This is a tough one. I’ll go with The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, because that’s a movie that’s inspired me on so many levels.
WHAT'S IN YOUR BAG?
Keys, wallet, some pens, some USB drives…that’s about it! I like to carry only what’s immediately necessary.
BEST PART ABOUT WORKING AT TSG?
The dogs! The people, too. Plus the fact that I’m working on what I’m passionate about for fields I’m excited about.
WHAT'S YOUR TSG OBSESSION?
I want to try all the food I see in the guides.
"THAT'S SO TSG":
The minimal but sophisticated design aesthetic.
