Hello! My name is Ty Wilkins and I'm a Brand Director, Designer, Illustrator, and Venture Partner based in Austin, Texas. I've worked for fast-growing startups, design studios, and as an independent design consultant.


A few of the startups I've worked with include GitLab, Auth0, Loom, and Vercel. I partnered with Google over four years to brand numerous products including Google Maps, Google AI, Google Analytics, Google Photos, Google Fi, and many more. I've also branded prominent open source projects including JSON Web Tokens (JWT) and Celery. And as a Freelancer I've worked with Meta, Target, and Stanford University.


My prior editorial illustration clients include Monocle, Wired, Bloomberg, Golf Digest, and ESPN. You can find some of my illustration work here.


As an early employee at Robinhood, my work spanned branding, product design, illustration, and marketing. Most recently I led an incredibly talented team of Brand Designers, Web Designers, Front-end Engineers, and 3D Artists at Scale.


As an angel investor I've invested in several high growth startups including Vercel, Medallion, Visual Electric, and Parafin. I'm also an investor and board member for Spline. Currently I'm a Venture Partner at Chapter One.
