About Twelve Directions
My name is Tyson Hellmich. I was born and raised in
sunny, southern California and had a very diverse and extremely rounded upbringing
which included animals, music, sports, acting, and the great outdoors. I
also had an early exposure and interest in computers which melded with a
strong sense of creativity. Today, I find I have a cornucopia of life experience
from which to draw inspiration and understanding as I dive head-first into
the endless possibilities of interactive design.
Twelve Directions is my freelance company.
I chose “Twelve” because of its symbolic strength and centricity.
Our very universe contains twelve planets. Our measure of time is based on
a twelve-month year; our day is based on two twelve-hour increments, and
often, a complete set is defined as a dozen, or twelve individual units acting
“Directions” refers to the many different and ever-progressing
avenues of interactive media, such as web design, web programming, audio
and video editing, and even printed graphic design. The future of interactivity
lies within these disciplines, so I have created this company, Twelve Directions,
that embraces each and unites them under one, interactive roof.
This site reflects the diversity of interactivity. As you move
from page to page, you interact with my site and become a part of my work.
Have fun looking at what I have done so far in my career. Check back often
for updates, and drop me a line if you feel so inclined.
