As a designer, Tony Shayne has always lived by the motto, “serve the work”. With each bit of research, equipment selection, and design choice, Tony has sought to do what is essential to making the best quality work for his collaborators and the audience. A “good design” for him is good research, respectful collaboration with others, clean and concise paperwork, a minimalist design approach, and to make striking and effective visuals choices.
