Tim Patek


Tim creates graphic themes, looks, logos and sometimes copywriting that best represent BAM’s clients’ needs. From there, he designs outdoor boards, print ads, direct mail pieces, web banners and TV graphics for specific promotions. Tim tries to be “game ready” for whatever challenge the day may bring. He enjoys working with clients, accepting their challenge and giving them a product they can be proud of.

Tim brings more than 30 years of experience to BAM, including small agency, large agency and freelance work. He has worked in a wide array of industries, including beer, soft drink, racing teams, Clydesdales, bull riders, LPGA golfers, car dealerships, restaurants, financial institutions and more!

Tim loves working in Photoshop and creating digital paintings, as well as using Adobe Illustrator, exploring the world of design and vector art. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Art and Design with a minor in Photography from Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.

Tim lives in Troy, Illinois with his wife, Sherri. They have three young adult children – one daughter and two sons, plus a dog. They love going to the beach, are very active in sports and enjoy visiting various restaurants. The best time according to Tim is when the whole family is on the same schedule and able to spend quality time together.
