If we could rent out an airplane and fly all around the world with an aerial advertisement to welcome a new team member, we would do so at the drop of a hat! Unfortunately, that can get a little expensive. So, we’ll give our new teammate the floor with their own employee spotlight.

Meet Tyron Foston – a software developer extraordinaire who loves standup comedy, programming, and problem-solving. Tyton graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Microbiology with an emphasis in Immunology (how the immune system works). He even conducted cancer research for four years before he decided to be a full time stand-up comedian! With his brains and driven mindset, Tyron is ready to tackle any task Quality Logo Products® throws his way! This includes developing new software for marketing emails, working closely with HTML on future pages, and building new systems for our website from scratch.
