My name is Karl Toomey. I’m a designery-creative type, who under the name KTOOMS, enjoys noodling around with playful ideas. For the most part these take the form of proposals, prototypes, provocations and the occasional prank.
Me as a pot by Alice Wigley
Alongside my playful activity I work as an independent designer. You can see this work here.
