What I do
What I Do

a bit of this, a bit of that

I love how the world of design is constantly changing and there is always the opportunity to learn a new skill or improve upon those you’ve used since day one. I also believe honesty is the best policy, so below you will find a breakdown of the skills I have to offer with ratings based on customer feedback. After all who doesn’t love a bar chart?

Custom built WordPress websites


Logo design and brand identity


eCommerce websites


Image editing and retouching


Graphic design and page layout


Search Engine Optimisation


What first attracted me to the design industry is the variety – no two projects or customers are ever the same. Combine that with a huge desire to learn and I’ve been fortunate to build up a wide range of skills in the past 11 years. To me good design is good design, whether it’s for print or the web I always approach a project in the same way – with a freshly sharpened pencil and a blank piece of paper.

About Me
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 15 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.

“We are all designers, the difference is that only a few of us do it full-time.”

you had me at hello…

Sometimes the best relationships start from a friendly “hello” and why I can’t promise you we’ll end up like Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger in Jerry Maguire it’s not a bad place to begin. Now “show me the money!”… Ok, I think that might be a bit much, sorry.
