Travis Crow PLA

Born and raised as a third generation Austinite, Travis has a keen understanding of the proud Texas heritage the towns and communities across this great state, hold dear. Since graduating from Texas Tech University in 2007, Travis has established himself as a leader in graphic illustration across Texas.  Although skilled in a wide range of abilities, Travis’ specialty is his ability to transform a simple idea into a dynamic, graphic representation of a finished project. While Travis’ artistic approach effectively communicates the vision for a project, his knowledge of materials, and how spaces relate help push those ideas into finished realities.

Outside of the studio his passion for art and skill in fabrication help him excel in the full gamut of the design process.  From building up canoes to race in the Texas Water Safari, to fabricating off-road gear for a family overland adventure, design and adventure go hand in hand.
