About Me

my life in a nutshell

As you may have already guessed Thread Creative isn’t my real name, luckily my parents weren’t that cruel. No, I’m really called Dan and I’m the founder of Thread Creative, a design and web agency born in 2012 in Basingstoke, Hampshire. Having spent over 10 years working in the design industry frustration and a desire for change has demanded, in my humble opinion, something more bespoke and personal to the client.

Since my very first graphic design job in 2002 I quickly grew aggravated with how sales lead the design world was, leaving little regard for genuine customer focus. Me? I’ve always loved talking to the client, getting to know a customer better as an individual has always helped me design something more unique to them and that’s what it’s all about right?

“A desire for change has demanded, in my humble opinion, something more bespoke and personal to the client.”

Are you still with me? Good, just checking.

I believe it was Ghandi who said “Be the change you want to see in the world” and he seemed to do alright. With his words stuck in my head I decided that the only way the design world would change was if I was the one to change it, the result? Thread Creative! “Design tailored to you” is not just a catchy motto it’s how I believe design should be. Whether it’s a brochure, a logo, a poster, a website or a business card it will be 100% tailored to you, 100% of the time. That’s the Thread Creative way.
