I’m better known on the internet as “Thafnine,” “Thaf” or since no one knows how to pronounce my name properly, “T9”. I’m a British based motion graphics and game designer amongst other things and my common interests are in art, motion design and graphics design in general, but one sector of graphics design I like in particular is UI and advertisement design. I’ve been interested in the way companies and people present themselves in media for a very long time (even though I didn’t know what Photoshop was at the time) and got into the graphics design business in 2012. At first I started making graphics for the game ‘Minecraft,’ but I’ve since then moved on from the game and worked on other projects, including making a poster based off of Psyonix Studios' Rocket League and being part of a global rebranding project for Rival Esports, a community organisation.
