AAF 16 Speaker Series – Tad Carpenter

Tad Carpenter is a designer, illustrator, author and educator based in Kansas City, Missouri.

Carpenter co-runs the design and branding studio, Carpenter Collective, with his wife, Jessica. Tad celebrates the power of play and embraces that the harder he works the luckier he gets. Tad will share his story from his Midwest roots to growing up as the son of an art director to how ultimately riding in a Ferrari changed his life forever.

Tad was lucky enough to grow up the son of two artists smack dab in the middle of the midwest. His father is an illustrator and has been a creative director for Hallmark Cards for nearly 40 years. Tad Carpenter and his studio Carpenter Collective’s overall approach to branding, strategy, and design have gained wonderful clients ranging from Target, Macy’s, Coca-Cola, Rayban, Nick Jr, MTV and Adobe. Tad’s work has appeared in numerous publications and he has written/illustrated over a dozen children’s books in the market today. Since 2009, Tad also teaches Graphic Design at the University of Kansas.
