Re-Design, Finally.

I know it’s still not 100% perfect and needs quite a bit of code cleanup, but I think I finally got the site to a point where I felt good pulling out this re-design I’ve been working on for a months. In between periods of zero free time, a move to San Francisco, and countless attempts at starting over I managed to put the content in a (hopefully) more usable format and took a stab at using HTML5.

The site looks more appealing in anything except IE (of course) with thanks to TypeKit for giving me a great way to use real fonts on the web. I’ve also added some Twitter, Flickr and Last.FM content here to give this a little more of a personal feel. Maybe one day I’ll even get a more recent photo of myself on here. I’d love to know your thoughts on the change.


Recent content I've written for you—just for you!— to enjoy while you're here.


Quick commentary and links to other sources you'll find interesting. I promise.


Some personal background, links to related projects, and other ways to connect.

Hi there. My name is Tom Pacyk and this is my small home on the web. I love the intersection of design, technology, and communication, which is a combination that led me to a career in sales and marketing roles at places like Zoom and ServiceNow. They're a bit old now, but I also had the opportunity to publish a couple of books along the way.

Portland, Oregon is home for me, my wife Beth, and our three kids, but I'm actually a Midwestern transplant—I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and went to school at Purdue and Illinois. When I find some free time I'm probably going to concerts, rooting for the Portland Timbers, or working on my Sunshine Burn Photography project.
