tap who?
TAP Creative is a freelance design firm started by myself, Tim Pucillo, in 2005. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with a BFA in Graphic Design in the late 1990s. Despite being strongly recruited by companies from Wisconsin to Florida, I decided to stay in Wisconsin and accepted a position with ADX Creative, a mid-sized design agency located in downtown Milwaukee. Starting out as a Graphic Designer I quickly moved up to become ADX's Web Master. After over five years of successful design I decided to take what I had learned and start my own freelance company. I am located in between Appleton and Steven's Point, in beautiful Waupaca, Wisconsin.

Throughout my years in the graphic design business I have worked with many types of companies, from Fortune 500 to small locally run business. As an employee of ADX Creative I got the privilege to see just how diverse the enterprise world is, here is a just a small example of the business/organizations I have done work for:

Hotel Metro

Leveraging technology - I can show you how your business can achieve maximum levels of success in advertising and branding using the latest and greatest techniques.

Results driven design - I'm only satisfied when you’re satisfied. My goal is to develop productive relationships with my clients so I can help determine what it will take to make your business grow. I truly listen to my clients and am always striving for their success.

Technical mastery - Computer guru is just one label I have owned for the last decade. I have spent countless hours reading manuals, taking classes and experimenting in order to offer my clients a broad range of services and options.

Creative - Thinking differently is not always the best approach as each business has different needs. I am a master of recognizing exactly what you want and what I can do to make it happen. I have the ability and skill to create both out of the box design as well as more conventional approaches.
