WAYMOND HAMPTON

A WEE BIT ABOUT MYSELF

I am a husband, dad, non-staff leader at New Community Church and Senior Creative at Hemisphere Design & Marketing. I live in and love the beautifully gritty city of Tacoma, WA. When it comes to my work, I enjoy the process and beauty of design, and dabble in the problem solving mess that is code.

Since 2010 I have had the privilege of teaming up with Adam Welch, the owner of Hemisphere. This has afforded me some amazing opportunities, from working with international brands such as SAP and Amazon, to creating new brands for Washington mainstays such as ArtsWA and TAPCO Credit Union. Being able to make a mark in Tacoma is especially exciting. Examples of this include creating online expressions for companies such as Cutters Point Coffee and Father Nature Landscapes, as well as working with local school districts and non profits to help them invest more creatively in people's lives. It's a joy to be able to work side-by-side with my friends, doing what I love, in one of the most amazing parts of the country. I can legitimitely say that I'm #blessed.

In short, as a designer, my desire is to create ethical, process-based, beautiful and functional work. As a human being, my desire is to love my family, love my city and be an agent of reconciliation.
