I’m Geo Thornton,

Graphic Designer

at Follow the Eyes

What do you do here?

I’m a member of Creative Team. We bring our clients’ visions to life.

How has your role at FTE evolved since you started?

My role has evolved and grown exponentially since I started at FTE. As we pick up new and different goals as a company I have to evolve to meet them – from magazine ads to websites to display to video; I can now do it all!

What’s the best thing about your job?

I love the variety of work and the fluidity of our day – how quickly the day can shift from one thing to another. There’s no time to sit and grow complacent.

What drew you to agency life?

Necessity mostly, but I spent five years working as an in-house designer for one company and being able to shift out of my comfort zone and into the fire and flames has been the best thing that could happen for my career.

What was your first job?

My first real job was as the in-house graphic designer and web-master for a company that makes luxury fire pits. My first job ever was playing cards to pay for college.

What’s your favorite quote?

“Go ahead and switch the style up. If they hate, then let them hate while you watch the money pile up” – 50 Cent

What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?

I’m probably the biggest conventional nerd at Follow The Eyes. I’m a former professional Magic: The Gathering Player, Pokemon Master, and currently a top 1% ranked PlayerUnknowns BattleGrounds player.

If you could have any one super power, which would you choose and why?

Ominipotence, because it’s like cheating at life.

What would you sing at Karaoke night?

ONE TO THREE UH, MY BABY DON’T MESS AROUND BECAUSE SHE LOVES ME SO AND THIS I KNOW FOR SURE! WHAT DOES SHE REALLY WANT IF SHE CANT STAND TO SEE ME WALK OUT THE DOOOOOOOOOOORRR (Outkast – Hey Ya)
