FOUNDER + CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Debbie is the lead designer, head chef, and founder of TDC. She received her Master of Arts in Graphic Design from Iowa State University, spent time working in the field, and then decided to chase the dream and start Trout Design Co. in the Summer of ‘17. The heart and lungs of TDC, she quotes Paul Newman, drinks bourbon neat, and loves rock-and-roll. Favorite movie: PS I love You; Favorite song: Fuel-Metallica. She’s a wild card with range, people.
Quote she lives by: “Mama didn’t raise no quitter.”
WRITER + CREATIVE STRATEGIST
Math teacher by day… Assistant-to-the-Graphic-Designer by night. Tim is the lead writer, researcher, and singer here at TDC, and he’s the semi-scatterbrained brain behind many of the designs you see. As a creative strategist he likes to experiment, concept map, and flood notebooks with sketches. As a person he likes Gary Stewart songs, baseball, and the ocean, and is an activist for getting Pete Rose into the HOF. Around here he plays Watson to Debbie’s Holmes.
Quote he lives by: “Alright, alright, alright”
