ZODIAC THUMP DESIGNS: ORIGINS
Zodiac Thump Designs (ZTD) got it's official start in 2015 - though the roots of the new graphic design company reach back a little further. When brother company music label Zodiac Thump Music (ZTM) needed a logo as well as other marketing materials, Andre Jones (label owner) decided that it was up to him to supply the graphics he needed.
Drawing on a both self and college-taught graphic design background as well as an intuitive eye for all things "design", Jones grew his label's identity into a recognized brand on the local music scene. Various patrons in the music community were impressed with his work and hired him to do graphic design work for them as well.
Fighting an uphill battle in the corporate sector, Jones decided to bet on Jones and in 2015 Zodiac Thump Designs was officially born.
