Day 1. Researching my DNA. My ancestors were fur traders, wealthy landowners, and tenant farmers. And I’m a designer? I think I understand how I’ve become a designer (sitting in my dad’s design office eating Junior mints by the box). My dog is looking at me a little weird right now. She does have fantastic fur.

My DNA Day 1 Ancestors From France

Day 2. I understand how my ancestors ended up in the US. Fur trading doesn’t interest me. My dog is wagging her tail about that. She loves her red ball as much as I love doing high-quality creative ideas and design.

Day 3. I see how my family made it to Massachusetts. I love my parent’s heritage and how it’s influenced my life. I understand how I’ve become a designer. I know why my dog loves playing ball. I’ll have to get her a Cubs hat.

My DNA Day 3 Mom & Dad

Day 4. So it’s confirmed. Being a designer is in my DNA. I still wonder if my Dad gave me his name with Junior after his based on the number of Junior Mints I used to eat.

Today, I continue to push the boundaries of digital branding and marketing, exploring new ways to present dynamic content. Thanks to Mom and Dad, I love what I do, and I continue to pursue what’s next with a passion that borders on the fanatical. Tomlinson Design is headquartered in the grand old maritime city of Newburyport, Massachusetts, now home to many vibrant 21st century initiatives. We would enjoy an opportunity to meet you in person and learn about your business challenges. We’ll be more than happy to bring you a box of Junior Mints. Sources:
