Bio

My name is Stuart Thursby, and I'm a Senior Art Director/ACD based in Toronto. To date, I’ve been fortunate enough to work on every media type out there for a wide variety of clients, though my focus has been on conceptualizing and crafting digital experiences as well as building and leading creative teams.

Agencies I’ve worked with include FCB/SIX, BBDO and Proximity Canada, Track DDB, T4G Kick, Teehan+Lax, Edelman and more.

Key clients over the years include BlackBerry, Campbell's Canada, Canada Student Loans, Canadian Olympic Committee, CIBC, Fairmont Hotels, Keurig, Mattamy Homes, Mercedes Benz, PFlag Canada, Primus, RBC, Rogers and Travel Yukon.

Additional work includes stints teaching as a part-time instructor at both Humber College and RED Academy, speaking on various panels, and writing numerous articles for organizations such as Applied Arts and FITC.
