TOM SLOAN  |  Creative


Creative director, artist, strategist, yarn spinner and knot untier.


Trained as a sculptor. Chose to mold brands instead. For the past two decades, I’ve been driven to create something timeless. From consumer to B2B to B2SB. From print to digital to “digital print”. I’ve been producing visual and written solutions to the questions marketers are trying to solve. Along the way I’ve been fortunate to do it for great brands and alongside great people. Always asking “why?” and always looking to create a lasting connection.
