1821 Design is a web, mobile, and print design and development studio founded in March 2006.

1821 Design is run by Thomas Swift and is based out of Elk Grove Village, Illinois. I have worked on many different projects ranging from iPhone Development to print design. I am quite skilled in many aspects of new media design and development. Feel free to me if you are looking to develop something extraordinary.
