As owner and operator of Thompson Agency, Stuart Thompson designs and creates advertising, branding and sales materials of all kinds for a wide range of clients. With over 30 years of experience in the advertising and graphic design field, Stuart has the unique ability to showcase a brand and deliver its overall message in a distinct and creative way.
A native charlottean, he started his career in advertising and design as partner and co-creative director at Thompson Agency with my father Joe. Together they developed thoughtful, intuitive and award-winning advertising and sales materials for regional and national brands for over 20 years. For the past six years since his father’s retirement, Stuart has been continuing the business from his home office.
After studying Fine Arts for two years at Appalachian State University, Stuart received both a Bachelors and a Masters Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Stuart lives in the historic Dilworth neighborhood of Charlotte with his wife Diane and their two dogs Gabby and Murphy. When he’s not working on his latest graphic design project, he enjoys watching NFL football and NBA basketball, sampling craft beers, playing his guitar and building things. If I’m not sitting at his computer, you can probably find him wearing a tool belt and swinging a hammer.
