MILWAUKEE INSTITUTE OF ART & DESIGN (MIAD)

Tony Holz is a bilingual visual thinker and creator with an eclectic sense of identity, currently finishing up his degree in Communication Design at MIAD. Tony’s early exposure to colorful characters in anime and video games is the predicted reason behind his sparkly passion for illustration and animation in design … both of which enable Tony to channel and capture life in spirited ways that (he believes) resonate in special areas of the heart.
