What we do:

Gold Van assembles the creative and technical team to deliver a project from concept to execution and oversee production throughout. While we have the capability to work across mediums, you’ll see we have a soft spot for character, lettering, and pattern design.

When we’re not heads down on client work, you’ll find us exploring new styles, doodling, and trying new techniques. See how we play.

Gold Van takes pride in fostering a network of creative collaborators whom we work with to offer a breadth of style for any given project. Below is a taster, but if you don’t see what you’re after here, don’t hesitate to ask. We’ve always got something more up our sleeves.

Services Include:

Art Direction
Event / Installation

Live Drawing


our story:

Gold Van is a studio by Timothy McAuliffe, former creative director at Google (2017-18), William Morris Endeavor (2015-16), and AT&T AdWorks (2011-13). Tim came up as a graphic designer in 2007 and broke into illustration in 2013, where he began racking up clients in the sports and entertainment world, catching the eye of major players like ESPN, Nike, Live Nation and Adidas.

He’s passionate about work that involves collaboration and visual problem solving.
