Hi there, My name is Anthony Tilahun and I own and operate Imageburst. This place is simply an outlet to showcase all my work and speak about everything from print to web and my experiences through it all. The goal here is to make this site as useful and engaging as possible.
Often times, I get asked how I came up with such a name. The answer came to me very easily. I’ve always had several ideas whenever approached for design projects and in the thought process, I considered those ideas as multiple images bursting into my mind. Sounds cheesy, perhaps but it’s the truth. Throughout the years, Imageburst served several purposes as I was finding my footing in the digital industry until I finally decided to create it for all my artistic endeavors. I really don’t have a fancy tag or slogan but if I was to choose one, it would perhaps be something simple as “Creating imaginative thoughts”.
I currently reside in Virginia and have been for the past several years. I fancy anything that’s artistic and love a challenge. There’s nothing more rewarding than seeing or hearing a persons’ expression light up in excitement when a project cycle is completed. My work ethics and quality are solid and refined. I’ve found my calling as a designer several years ago when I first started a job at a printing firm. The child in me kind of felt like I was behind the curtain of OZ or in Santa’s work shop. Seeing and absorbing how the entire process worked was a great experience as I was given the chance to know everything from concept, design to completion.
Aside from all that, I’m very passionate about the arts. When I’m not working on something that involves a computer, you’ll find me at my sketch book capturing inspirations from either creative thoughts or through the lense of my camera.
No great artist ever sees things as they really are. If he did, he would cease to be an artist. ~Oscar Wilde
Coding has a certain elegance and when written, it will show. I pride myself in writing it from scratch. This minimizes the use of third party software (unless specified) allowing less fuss and muss on how things work. As the programmatic personality here, I like to outline and do steps in iterations and minimize post-production time and execute well staged code and styles.
Being a designer has often led me to think in, out and around the box. They are so many methods of approach but designing has always seemed like a crossword puzzle, you don’t see how all the pieces fit until they all start coming together. Often enough, I tend to have a foresight on how such designs would occur and result in before hand. Therefore happy accidents are not rare.
Drawing, photography, creating an amazing and highly detailed masterpiece to the digital canvas in Photoshop is something you’ll catch me doing on my down time. I like to view the world at different perspective whether it’s through a lense or my eyes and a pencil. I have vivid dreams that’s always feeding me an untapped pool of constant ideas.
I’m part designer and part web developer (front end) so what that means to you is that I’m a one stop shop when it comes getting everything done. This encompasses the entire conception stage to completion (development phases). Even if you need something as simple as a business card designed or printed (or both), I’d be glad to help you on that. If you’d like to get to know me on a personal level please visit my personal blog page AnthonyTilahun.com (not up at the moment). If you’d like to work with me on your project, idea, business or something else please don’t hesitate to contact me.

To help you achieve your goals
Being a good listener will tell me what costumers do and don’t like. Listen, weigh the cost/benefit and practical reality of their request and decide how to pursue and/or implement.
Consider me the “Go To Guy” to get things done, plain and simple. I like to work hard to get that smile or “Wow” expression, even if it means going above and beyond to make you happy. I soulfully believe when you give someone that kind of treatment, you’ll be coming back for more.
I want what we do together to be great. Memorable. Long-lasting. Fun.
Ever evolving and improving
