Thavin is a Berkeley, California based Graphic Designer who collaborates with businesses, creatives, non-profits, and cultural arts organizations to help guide visual narratives through design and creative strategy. Influenced by film, music, jokes, cooking, and architecture, he loves how all forms invite you to a space of story-telling that create dialogue and curiosity, which he believes is the foundation of meaningful work.
He is currently exploring Unity for AR and is a member of Oakland-based collective MACRO WAVES. When he’s not designing new typefaces, you can find him documenting things on his bike rides, watching A24 movies, or cooking with Kaffir leaves.
