It all started for Tom Ingalls in Minnesota, where he was born and
After receiving his BFA in graphic design from Syracuse University,
Ingalls traveled west to earn an MFA in graphic design from the
California Institute of the Arts, in Valencia, where he has taught since
1980 and is currently senior adjunct professor.
His first real job was for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art,
making everything from banners to books and then some. In 1978 he was
lured to San Francisco by Rolling Stone, for whom he worked until
the magazine moved to New York City. Ingalls decided to stay in San
Francisco and start his own firm, Ingalls Design.
Ingalls first joined AIGA in 1976. He finds great satisfaction in the
many clients and colleagues he has worked with along the way, which
include museums, publications, wineries and distilleries, restaurants
and bars, banks, law firms and software companies.
In-house designers are at risk of being just different enough to be misunderstood, undervalued and marginalized by both the business and design communities. Shame on us, though, if we let that happen, says veteran in-house design manager Andy Epstein, who outlines how to use outsider status as an advantage.

I’ve seen it dozens of
times. A design team meets after observing people use their design, and they’re
excited and energized by what they saw and heard during the sessions. They’re
all charged up about fixing the design. Everyone comes in with ideas, certain they
have the right solution to remedy users’ frustrations. Then what happens?
