Stuart Thursby

Art Director/Senior Designer

Berlin, Germany
+49 1520 3239298
I am an art director & senior designer from Toronto, Canada, currently freelancing out of Berlin, Germany.

Primarily, my works falls within digital art direction and graphic design, though I’ve been lucky enough to work on pretty much every type of project across virtually every media for clients ranging from the biggest companies to the smallest start-ups.

My spare time is chiefly taken up with photography, though I also dabble in writing and playing music. I’ve spoken at events, I regularly write for Applied Arts, and I've even led a few workshops over the years. I am also a member of the Program Advisory Council for Centennial College's Graphic Design program in Toronto.

It's always nice to be recognized for being a part of making something good happen, and some of the projects I’ve worked on have been recognized by Cannes, the Canadian Marketing Awards, the Advertising & Design Club of Canada, Caples and Applied Arts.
