Web developer/Graphic designer

Tom Longmate

I’m a London-based designer with 12 years experience in industry, working predominantly as a web developer. My recent MA has provided an opportunity to explore generative design methodologies and techniques, using open source graphics frameworks such as Processing and Paper.js, as well as developing further my understanding of the fundaments of Graphic Design. I’m currently working at KentLyons on a variety of web projects, with a focus on responsive design and mobile devices.

I decided when I’d finished my study I would look to give something back to the local community. The riots were a shock to the system for a lot of people, but the community’s reaction to those events was inspiring, particularly the support offered to Siva’s shop after it was ransacked. I’d like to make a positive difference, in a small way, to my environment.
