I’m currently open for new design projects.Let's Work Together
I’m Rafal Tomal, a designer and web developer living in Chicago. I’m currently the VP of Design at Rainmaker Digital and I run my own design studio here at RafalTomal.com.
I was born and raised in beautiful, southeastern Poland. I moved to the U.S. right after graduating high school to start a new life and my career as a web designer.
I made the decision to quit college and my first full-time job and start my own freelance business when I was 21. This decision led me to some new opportunities and introduced me to the WordPress ecosystem.
In 2015, I published an ebook, The Essential Web Design Handbook, that I’m turning now into a full online web design course to help designers improve their skills and learn how to design beautiful and effective websites.
About my work.
I started my career as a developer, then transitioned into a designer, and always worked very closely with marketers, learning how to build, market, and successfully sell online products.
Having 10+ years of experience in development, design, and online marketing helped me to build up a unique set of skills that is very rare these days.
In my work I’m focused on designing simple, visually appealing, and user-centered websites that not only look good, but - most importantly - work for the business.
Throughout my career I’ve had a chance to work with many successful companies, entrepreneurs, and bloggers whom I helped to design effective websites that work and convert:
- Jay BaerPresident of Convince & Convert
- Chris BroganCEO of Human Business Works
- Brian ClarkFounder & CEO of Copyblogger Media
- Chris DuckerVirtual CEO
- Bryan EisenbergNew York Times best selling author
- Brian GardnerFounder of StudioPress.com

- Chris PirilloFounder of LockerGnome.com

Rafal is far and away the best designer we’ve ever worked with, and I don’t just mean his design competence. Sure, he’s brilliant and delivered an amazing site for our company, but he was also wonderfully easy to work with. He was patient, quick, organized, and responsive. He’s given us exactly what we need to continue growing our business.
