The Bad Feathers

Brad Thomason

Creative / Project Director

Brad loves, in no particular order, CSS + HTML, information design, fiction, climbing, typography, Heather, web standards, running, WordPress, baking bread, JavaScript, content strategy, pasta, and whatever he happens to be figuring out on his current projects.

Before Bad Feather, he co-founded the artist-in-residence Hueyhaus in the outskirts of Santa Fe, New Mexico and spent a couple of years as a High School art teacher in Denver, Colorado. Most recently, he developed a curriculum for Foundations of Web Design, a class he teaches in the Visual Arts department of Fordham University.

Heather Marold Thomason

Creative / Business Director

Heather got her start creating identities and print campaigns for a number of award-winning design studios and advertising agencies in New York City and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Eventually she teamed up with Brad, began to design websites, and in 2008 Bad Feather Inc. was born.

Dinner parties, wearing costumes, Brad’s weakness for bad puns, all things Italian and her dog Francine make Heather smile. She is also dedicated to good food and supporting sustainable agriculture, and documents her culinary adventures on her blog, Operation Gastronomia.

Our Collaborators

We Bad Feathers know you can’t do everything alone if you want to do it well. Lucky for us, we have lots of talented friends! We collaborate with specialist studios and fellow creatives whenever the project calls. What that means for our clients is a small, personal, full-service studio with the capacity for bigger, badder projects.
