Tom Blanck

As the Founder and Creative Director of TMBPartners, Tom believes “the secret to good design lies much deeper than visual appeal.” A designer at heart, Tom understands that behind every well-executed design is one key element: strategy. Also trained in engineering and photography, he begins every project by understanding exactly how something works and then uses that information to create the design and strategy.

Throughout his 25+ years in the marketing and advertising industry, companies such as AT&T, Ford Motor Company, Neiman Marcus and Chevrolet (to name just a few) recognized Toms’ strengths and sought him out to develop campaigns and product launches that resulted in increased revenue, decreased expenses and exceptional brand exposure.

Ritchie Fliegler

A voyage of passion, creativity and discovery has led Ritchie to this important principle: greatness is achieved through critical thinking, energy, passion and responsibility. His extensive resume includes tenures as a Sr. VP of Marketing and business/market development at Fender Musical Instruments and Vice President of Marketing at Barrett-Jackson classic car events.

Ritchie states, “My real-world media and production experience comes into play with clients who are often overwhelmed by all of the new and old media they’ve been told they need to participate in. None of this stuff is magic, it all serves a purpose, but too often that purpose is lost in the noise of the latest must-do initiative. I enjoy walking clients through this maze, easing their stress, helping them focus on what they need.”

Cooper Richardson

After seven years of designing and developing websites and brands for companies around the globe, Cooper joined TMB Partners to advance the digital presence of our clients. As a technology enthusiast and continual learner, he has experience in web development, user interface design, artificial intelligence, robotics, 3D printing, and autonomous drones.

Cooper’s penchant for teaching helps him inform and inspire our clients about the technology expressing their digital strategy. He believes, “When you break a complex problem down into it’s elements, finding solutions and making decisions becomes a lot easier. So much of today’s technology appears opaque at first, but that’s only because it is too complex to understand as a whole. I enjoy finding simple ways of explaining these complex concepts in a way that everyone can understand.”

James Welch

“Everything’s impossible until somebody does it.” It’s with this outlook that James approaches every project. Whether it’s a local non-profit, national or international company, James brings a less is more mentality that delivers the simplest solution possible, while taking client goals and expectations into consideration.

As a multi-disciplinary graphic designer/web developer, James has delivered creative and out of the box solutions across brand identity, print, and digital media.
