Founder - Thad Cox

Former Advertising Creative Director turned Branding specialist with over two decades of experience working with global brands to create a variety of award-winning work across all media. 

With dazzling blue eyes and crooked smile, this former professional coach is passionate, intense and doesn’t take any nonsense. Thad is fiercely loyal, supportive and protective of his clients.

Known for his loathing of fake gurus and show offs, his combination of tough love, creativity and enthusiasm will make your brain fall out, but in a good way.

Never without his AirPods, a coffee and his trusty sketchbook. Trust him with your brand, but not with your Nutella.
