Stuart Thursby
Art Direction & Design

Bio

My name is Stuart Thursby, and I am the Associate Design Director at FCB/SIX 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 digital experiences. Some of the agencies I’ve worked with include T4G Kick, Proxmity/BBDO, Teehan+Lax, DARE, Edelman, AJ&Smart and Trajectory, and some clients include Art Canada Institute, BlackBerry, Campbell’s Canada, Canadian Olympic Committee, Fairmont Hotels, Mattamy Homes, Monoqi, Ryerson, Shipwire, and Travel Yukon.

I’ve mostly been based in Toronto, with the addition of a six-month span of time spent freelancing in Berlin, Germany. In recent months I’ve also started teaching as a part-time instructor at Humber College and RED Academy. I’ve spoken on panels, written numerous articles on the industry for organizations such as Applied Arts and FITC, and have an award shelf that includes recognition from Cannes, the ADCC, CMAs, John Caples and more. Photography is my main creative pursuit beyond art direction and design.
