Ty Cooper

Art Director, ca. '21

I order the club sandwich all the time. And I'm not even a member! I don't know how I get away with it.

Ty is a multidisciplinary designer with front-end web development experience. He believes that design should be thoughtful and have a purpose that’s more than purely aesthetic. Ty comes to Vital via Chicago where he worked at a boutique branding agency, which afforded him the opportunity to do a little bit of everything (and a lot of some of it). He spent a good deal of his pre-Vital career working with not-for-profits and cultural institutions in and around the Windy City.

Outside of work, Ty can be found — well, outside. He enjoys skateboarding, music, hiking, reading, photography, cooking, and attempting to develop a believable New England accent.
