David Thomas has been with KSNF/KODE since November 2020. He graduated from Missouri Southern State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design earlier that same year. He has done design work for newspapers and magazines and has worked as a freelance designer for a variety of clients.
Creating visual art is one of his passions. From conventional poster design to traditional mediums like watercolor, he enjoys a multitude of mediums.
He is on staff with a local passion project called “The Joplin Toad” (https://www.joplintoad.com/), which is self-described as “An Intergalactic Joplin Missouri Platform”. The toad supports the fine-arts in the Four State region through various ventures, including a semi-annual magazine which can be purchased at many local businesses in the Joplin area.
