Why The Last Pick?
Great question. I bought the domain name in college to teach myself web design and liked it so much that I adopted it as my design alias. I’m also a sucker for a good vanity URL and any type of underdog.
My name is Tim McCarthy and I'm a designer that specializes in Art Direction, Web Design and Branding. I love vintage neon signs, Nike Air Max sneakers and the Hartford Whalers logo.
I just joined SeatGeek as Creative Director. I'm excited to help make ticket buying more enjoyable and build a brand people love. Because let's face it, fans have suffered for too long.
I recently left San Francisco where I was an Interactive Art Director at Apple. Unfortunately, that's all I can say about that.
Prior to Apple, I was an Art Director at Bonobos, an online men's clothing company in New York City, where I was the design lead on all online marketing creative and oversaw all creative for the golf line.
On the side, I run a blog called HeySport, which follows all things design in the world of sports. What started as a New Year's resolution has now become a full-time hobby.
