During his early career, Tigerman borrowed extensively from an eclectic blend of styles. In later years, his diverse design style has progressively assumed a more sensual and theatrical character. Tigerman's early skill with curves and perspective has expanded to include organic shapes, bright color, topiary, and allegory. From his early eclectic styling he has developed into an idiosyncratic theorist.


Tigerman creates specific and unique designs for each individual client. He sees design as a complex representation of art and criticism. With the transformation of his design approach, he has become a leading advocate of architecture as a cultural and technological response to society. His works have developed an increasingly Classical vocabulary.


Tigerman generates designs that are marked by formal inventiveness, sculptural and compositional finesse and attentiveness to detail. He references pop and pornography, history and literature to create formal design building blocks. He feels that architecture should be fun, witty, and appealing. Unfortunately this design aesthetic has led to some decidedly trivial design programs.


Tigerman has been a central influence on the architectural community of Chicago. He has helped to create a community of discussions among Chicago designers and to encourage talented beginners to participate. He has also brought architectural issues to a wider audience that includes architects, artists and the general public.
