Thomas Wakely 

BA [Hons] Visual Communication Design

Hi, I'm Thomas. I am a design student with a love for authentic and bold concepts. While studying visual communications I have developed a deep interest in visual storytelling focused on user needs through the use of creative image making and language. I believe that as a designer, it is important to utilise your own experiences, interests and hobbies outside of design to inform the creative process, giving each project a personality born from individuality.


Orbit operates as a space mining organisation. With investment at 51% public, Orbit's public investors are its leaders. This ensures that the ecological ethos and mission of Orbit cannot be compromised by individual agendas. Orbit changes the source of precious metals, rendering Earth mining inferior to the abundant new source, and is in a position to give back. With its profits, Orbit itself invests in the reclamation of mines across the globe, healing the scars of the past as we move forward. Whilst reclaiming mines, new industries in these areas develop, land becomes usable, and the invasive nature of mining in developing nations becomes a thing of the past.
