My name is Tom Galang III. I am a graphic designer from the East Bay Area in California. I am a recent graduate from Academy of Art University in San Francisco with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design.

My focus in graphic design is editorial and branding with skills in packaging, environmental, and digital design. I believe great design is organic, meaningful, concept-driven, and strives to make the people's lives better.

Aside from graphic design, I also have a strong interest in fashion. I am the founder and designer of a lifestyle brand called VSTG® (Visions Sent Through God®)—a design venture I started in 2020 while studying at the Academy.
