Portfolio of Ty Lagalo,
a pixel-pushing,
based designer


I currently work for a fortune 50 company with heavy emphasis on visual identity, branding, interactive design, user experience, and visual leadership and guidance. Over the years, I’ve been blessed working with other creative and passionate people on a wide variety of projects, completing large scale projects for web and mobile applications.

I enjoy spending my free time with my wife and two sons, relaxing up north in the summer, taking photographs, or attempting to play all the games I buy from Valve’s Steam Sales. I’ve also started to delve into the world of game development, which has been pretty exciting so far.
