Tom was 25 when he discovered CG on a multimedia course at college. He progressed to a Computer Animation MA at Bournemouth NCCA, then joined a 3D studio in London. All the while 3dtotal.com was growing as a hobby. In 2001, he took the leap and started 3dtotal full-time. And it's been growing ever since! Tom also works as a woodsman (as he's now getting on a bit and slowly turning into his Dad, who thinks anyone who works in CG helps the Coast Guard)
Simon is currently serving his second sentence at 3dtotal after taking a couple of years out to write and illustrate children's books. He's happy to be back as the Studio Manager and is also the proud founding father of Burrito Thursday. When you think of Simon three things come to mind: pasty shoes, a big forehead, and bad jokes!
Production & Communications Editor
Melanie comes from a publishing background and has previously worked for academic and educational publishers. Having always had a strong interest in art, she is now very pleased to be working for 3dtotal. Melanie enjoys skiing, Burrito Thursdays, and trying to exercise enough to justify Burrito Thursdays.
Annie comes from an arts background and studied contemporary fine art and literature at university. She spent time travelling and exploring different roles in the arts industry before taking an English Literature MA. Having joined 3dtotal in 2015, Annie enjoys working with some amazing artists and finding new talent for 2dartist magazine.
Marisa studied illustration and creative digital media at university, and loves to both create and look at art. She lurked around doing drawing-related odd jobs for a while, before joining 3dtotal full-time in 2014. She loves books, games, music, shoes, dogs, and dragons, and is a loyal member of the Burrito Thursday squad.
Debbie briefly dabbled with being a primary school teacher but decided it didn't give her enough free time to read and do arty things, so she joined 3dtotal in 2015. Since then she has filled her desk with a veritable zoo of small inanimate animals. She is mildly obsessed with her new puppy, sushi, and stationery.
Adam joined the staff at 3dtotal in August 2013, bringing with him writing and editing experience, as well as the will to help customers. He is constantly amazed by the creativity of others and loves the written word, but is becoming increasingly impressed with the CG 2D and 3D artwork out there!
Lead Graphic Designer
Imi originally worked for 3dtotal in 2007 as a design intern while studying at college. After graduating from university, she went on to work for a number of (super busy!) design and marketing agencies, specialising in design for print. In 2013, she rejoined the 3dtotal team as our Lead Designer, bringing with her a keen eye for design and layout.
Matt first began his affiliation with 3dtotal towards the end of 2005 when he joined 3dtotal as a part-time designer while studying at the local art college. After a stint in Cardiff, Wales, where he completed his degree in Graphic Communication, he returned to Worcester - and the 3dtotal team - to take a full-time position on the design team.
Since joining the 3dtotal team as a designer in 2011, Az has made a name for himself as a formidable opponent in the office pool games. And when he is not collecting tattoos or watching sports, he can be found working on a variety of projects within 3dtotal, including designing and laying out one of the monthly magazines, 2dartist.
IT Manager & Web Developer
A long-term computer geek, thrilled to be in charge of the SysAdmin/WebDev/IT-dogsbody duties for 3dtotal, and constantly amazed by the outstanding quality of the technology and digital art out there, Tristan wishes that these amazing tools and helpful resources had existed back in 1995 when he was struggling to learn the ropes on DeluxePaint and Imagine 3D on his trusty Commodore Amiga!
Greg has been playing and designing games for as long as he's been able to walk. He likes to think that he's finally getting good at it, although he claims that he still falls over sometimes. He enjoys linguistic ambiguities, cultural change and chocolate; he's also a doctor of psychology, but prefers playing games with people to studying them!
