Thursday is a design consultancy dedicated to strategy, ideas and beautifully crafted creative. We’re a group of friends bound together by a passion for intelligent, thought provoking design. We work hard for each other every day — helping our clients build better brands. We understand the power of story telling. We understand the value of design. We understand the strength of mateship. That’s what makes Thursday unique.
Established in the Clarendon Hotel late on a warm Wednesday night in 2009, we named Thursday for tomorrow — the first day of the rest of our lives. Since inception, the studio has received acclaim and praise from industry peers who we respect wholeheartedly. Thursday values humility. We don’t publicise our cabinet full of awards, preferring our work for our clients work to speak for itself. We draw motivation from their success and inspiration from their goals.
Our broad portfolio of work is supported by a rigorous strategic methodology that underscores every design solution. That’s the process of a brand becoming authentic, with a story to tell.
Each of our clients works directly with at least one of our principals. We believe long-term meaningful collaborations are created by a personal commitment to deliver intelligent advice, original ideas and beautiful design. That’s Thursday. Everyday.
