Hello, I am Gerard Thomas

僕は ジェラード トーマス

I'd like to say I am big in Japan... but I'm not.

Industrial designer come website designer. Dad. Guy who does a bit of Kendo, rides bikes for fun and enjoys the odd bit of writing.

Through my passions and interests I have managed to a lot of things in the field of design - from designing motorcycles (Ducati Motorcycles), apparel, and experiential installations (for the likes of Sony, MountainCycles, Telstra, NZ Navy...), through to doing illustrations for magazines.

I'm that person HR type people can't cope with.

Unashamedly drawn to conceptual ideas and design that can only be described as uniquely Japanese in their thinking and identity, when I am not working on websites I continue to develop my own, increasingly abstract, piece of the science fiction universe; writing words and developing visuals for what has become a project I call 'The Silent'. I can also be found doing the odd piece of commercial illustration or design work.
