Thinking Strategically About Design

Thinking Strategically About Design

Gill Thomas is an independent brand strategist.

She began her career as a graphic designer at the internationally renowned agency Pentagram with a focus and passion on the craft of design. She then spent 18 years at award winning creative agency The Partners, starting as a mid-weight designer rising to a board position of creative partner. Gill went independent 10 years ago and made the shift from designer to strategy. Uniquely, she is in the position of ‘speaking both languages’, working directly with clients and with a number of (small and medium sized) agencies wanting to add a strategic dimension to their work.

This intensive one-day session is designed to give you an introduction to thinking more strategically about your design work. It explores what’s involved in thinking strategically and the benefits of doing so and how to use it to your advantage. You will explore ‘the four corners’ of thinking strategically and consider a range of tips and techniques, which you can apply directly to your current work.
