Trevor said, “I created this position in recognition of Tom’s dedication and talent. I’ve watched him grow from the vardering process, through the one-man show he put on to challenge himself (wowing the whole company not just with his creative work but with his entertaining, engaging patter on stage), to taking on the role of mentoring the Art Team Part Deux. This is what Trevor Sorbie is about, our philosophy is encapsulated in Tom’s work and attitude.”

Tom says, “It feels like all my hard work has paid off and at the same time it’s just the beginning. In the last 6 years my work has changed drastically. Trevor has helped me develop my taste and confidence to the point where I don’t mind making mistakes in the search for new ideas.”
