Finding Lincoln Logs and Legos “too restrictive,” Brian ‘The Thomanator’ Thoma finessed his design process in architecture school while studying abroad in Florence, Italy. This experience, as it often does, led to an affinity for grey tones, a penchant for sporting a beard (albeit calico), and an uncanny ability to misappropriate descriptors while discussing design. Brian firmly believes that he is, in fact, the second most ‘hipster’ person in the office—not third most—as is commonly agreed upon by his peers.
