Tyler has earned a reputation as one of the most talented concept artists in the business – I am consistently impressed by the work that he and his studio put out. His versatility, creative prowess, and raw ability are paired with strong communication, collaborative spirit, and flexibility. Each of the last three studios where I worked (EA Los Angeles, Sony Santa Monica, and Blizzard) commissioned pieces from Tyler that helped shape creative vision. I expect concepts from Tyler will continue to influence the development of many characters, objects, and worlds to come.

First and foremost, the quality of their final work was terrific, but along the way [Tyler's] creative communication, ‘active listening’ and timely iteration process were excellent as well. In Tyler I felt I had a fully invested collaborator helping bring my vision to life, as attentive to aesthetics as he was to the technical considerations at hand. The whole experience was exactly what I’d hoped, I look forward to working with Tyler and his team again soon, and I am happy to recommend him with gusto to one and all!

It was a pleasure collaborating with Tyler and his team at West Studio. Given a challenging visual development brief, they produced a good variety of high quality inspirational options for us to work with. I would be happy to work with West Studio again given the opportunity!

It was a pleasure! Eat Sleep Play could not have gotten there without West Studio. We are thankful for all that Tyler did to make Twisted Metal what it is. I hope to have the opportunity to work with West Studio again- it was a blast and it made our game much, much better!
DAVID JAFFE | Game Director, Bartlet Jones Supernatural Detective Agency
West Studio was a pleasure to work with. Tyler and his team were reliable and able to provide us with a tremendous variety of different styles to choose from. Their focus is always on the quality of the work and addressing our feedback with skillfulness and experience. We look forward to working with West Studio again.

Tyler is a visionary designer and entrepreneur. His ability to switch between concept artist and creative manager is rare and extremely valuable for collaboration in a professional environment. His services are extremely versatile and West Studio provides the most important components to a successful pre-production as well as production phase of any IP in development. Tyler brings a lot of very positive energy to the table and is extremely reliable as well as enthusiastic. His background as an industrial designer and his experience in the gaming industry are invaluable to any client looking to develop their ideas with West Studio.
PATRICK MARC HANENBERGER | Production Designer, Dreamworks Animation
Tyler West is one of the most skilled in the business. Some projects at Infinitum Nihil are very complex and challenging to visualize. Tyler was able to solve many of the visual unknowns and created inspiring artwork that combines originality, sophistication and design that is hard to come by. I look forward to collaborating with West Studio in the future.
