Tom Uferas studied at Penninghen design school in Paris. When he got his diploma in 2005, he began to work at Laurence Madrelle’s studio (LM communiquer). They worked mainly in the cultural fields. One year later he moved to Rome and lived as a freelancer for almost a year. In 2007, he came back to Paris and set up his first studio with a friend, which was called Tom&Léo. They designed a lot of corporate events, artworks for concerts, zines, logos… Three years later, Léo decided to concentrate on illustration and moved to Argentina. Tom decided to keep running the design practice under a new name: République Studio.
