An industry certified textile, graphics and home accessories designer, Ross Thompson infuses his international experience and passion for beauty into everything he does. Having directed corporate design departments, been a faculty member at design schools and sold his work to some of North America’s largest retailers, Thompson applies a unique and artistic touch to every project in which he engages.     


Recognized worldwide for his work in the domains of textiles, graphic, home accessory and photography; Ross has created products which range from shower curtains, bedding, and draperies to annual reports, corporate identities and product packaging. He has also directed projects to create promotional or training materials, develop high-level sales collateral, produce publisher ready cook books or print magazines, and bring jewelry designs to market. 


Passionate about the environment and using renewable fair-trade fabrics, Thompson’s forward thinking perspective and one-of-a-kind creativity has him continually producing timeless works of art.  He believes that being a designer, be it in fashion, interior, or visual communications, involves the same principles – it is only the materials that change. Viewing the world of design as a seamless entity, Ross Thompson sees fabrics and materials as his canvas – onto which he applies unique visions reflecting the future of textile and accessory design.
