Stuart Thursby

Art Director

Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I am an art director based in Toronto. In my career so far, I've worked with agencies such as T4G Kick, BBDO/Proximity, Teehan+Lax, Edelman, DARE, Trajectory and AJ&Smart, on behalf of clients such as BlackBerry, Campbell's, the Canadian Olympic Committee, Fairmont, RBC, Shipwire, Tourism New Brunswick, Travel Yukon and many, many more.

My expertise is primarily digital, but my experience has been varied across all media types, with a secondary emphasis on all things print.
