Daniel Thompson

Designer & Illustrator

Daniel has been a valued member of the Holdens team ever since he joined as a graduate from university.

Over the years, he’s worked across a wide range of design and illustration projects, producing more than 50 pieces of theatre artwork and creating new brands for a whole host of clients.

Creativity has always been a key part of Daniel’s life, attending a Rudolf Steiner school before studying graphic design at Manchester School of Art (with a brief stint at circus school in between).

Very active on the local design scene, you’ll find him at most design events across the city – often chatting away in a corner over a glass of whisky or occasionally running talks about his work.
