Tim Frisch joined BVH as a graphic designer in early 2015. The design voice he brings to the firm is rooted in a love for hand-made processes and a strong background in studio art.
After receiving his BFA in Painting from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, Tim worked as a print-production designer where he gained invaluable experience in both conceptual design and real-world technical skills. His role at BVH allows him to advocate for better design in everything from print materials to environmental graphics.
When not spending time with his family, reading about black holes and time travel, or eating burgers at Honest Abe’s, Tim continues to pursue his first love of painting. He also serves as graphic designer for 2 Pillars Church, and is a member of AIGA Nebraska.
What is your favorite place you have visited?
A traveling exhibit of Utagawa Hiroshige prints in Rome.
What are you optimistic about?
I’m hopeful that, while design won’t save the world, it can definitely make it a better place to live in.
What is your area of interest or research?
I’m very interested in the act of bringing graphic design—whether rooted in print, digital, or experiential media—into the environment.
What is your inspiration?
I get inspired by simple yet unexpected solutions to design problems, especially when they go deeper than what’s visible on the surface. I often come back to the work of artists like Chris Ware, Edward Hopper and Dan McCarthy, and designers such as Michael Beirut and Dan Cassaro.
