ta.c is a one-man operation. 

Based out of his hometown, Chicago, T A Collins (whose real name is Tommie Albert Collins) is a multi-faceted creative with experience in graphic design and marketing. His niche is conceptualization, organization, and agile design.

A designer from humble beginnings, Collins believes in the impossible. The outlandish and the unconventional are the environments where he thrives. A results-driven and meticulous creative, Collins utilizes a three-component to evolve ideas to solutions and collateral:


Collins views all projects as an opportunity to challenge current trends, products and redefine the limits. When he says redefines, he means to eliminate them.

He has a diverse portfolio that showcases a keen eye for detail, fluidity to engage on print and digital mediums, excellent usage of typography, and a stellar understanding of color theory. 

A former employee of brands such as tronc (formerly known as Tribune Publishing) and Gannett Co., Inc., Collins has worked on annual reports, branding and style guides, college and university collateral, editorial designs for magazines and newspapers, and much more.

Collins has a degree in design from Hampton University and will further his education pursuing dual masters in design and business administration this fall at the Illinois Institute of Technology Institute of Design.
