Article Body:
Tungsten Design, a sole-proprietorship owned and operated by Thomas
Maiaroto Jr. was registered in December of 2005 in the state of
Pennsylvania and started business in January 2006.

The company will offer graphic design services to clients from all over,
but is based in New Hope, Bucks County, PA. Tungsten Design is able to
handle clients from remote location thanks to Thomas Maiaroto's online
project management software. This software, "Galileo," does more than
allow clients to see their project come together. "Galileo" is also
responsible for client relationship management, scheduling, prospecting,
and more. It runs the business from a management point of view. This
saves time and eliminates the need to hire a manager for the business.
This is extremely good considering the business is new, of course, and
every minute that can be dedicated elsewhere greatly helps the company.

"Galileo" is a fork off various other PHP scripts found on the internet
and some of which were abandoned projects. Like all good software, it
took little parts from many places and then further unique additions to
make it just right. It is completely customized to Tungsten Design's
needs and to the needs of its clients. Clients can login, see what's
going on, communicate, leave messages, share files, see proofs, and more.

Tungsten Design was started by Thomas Maiaroto after his employment as
art director for LifeStyle Magazine in 2005. Prior to this, Thomas
Maiaroto graduated from the School of Visual Arts in NYC with a BFA in
Graphic Design. Studying under world-famous professors, Thomas was able
to use his education to greatly benefit LifeStyle Magazine during his
last semester at college. Some of the guidelines and practices set forth
by Thomas for the magazine continue to remain in use still.

Thomas believes that the importance of the grid, precise, effective, and
clean layout in design is paramount. This philosophy has been carried
into Tungsten Design. For instance, LifeStyle Magazine was designed based
on the "Golden Section" a mathematical ratio that has been used by
artists throughout the centuries. This ratio is regarded as very pleasing
to the eye. Since his graduation, advanced research and study into grid
systems, usability, and human psychology has been part of Thomas'
continued study. His self-education into PHP programming and internet
marketing has also helped him further become a valuable provider for his
clients and the industry.

While Tungsten Design is a new company, it remains very flexible. Thomas'
time is dedicated to many paid and volunteered projects under the
umbrella of Tungsten Design. Due to the way the company is setup, it will
be sure to have a solid foundation for years to come. It is in part
thanks to the flexibility and "Galileo" that company overhead is reduced
and time is saved. Thomas Maiaroto also works with local, well-known and
award-winning photographer, Robert Hall. Thomas currently studies under
Robert for photography.
