Thomas Sharp

Poet & Creative Director

Thomas Sharp is a poet and Creative Director. He’s spent his life thinking about what writing can do, inventing worlds, campaigns and artistic moments with language at their heart. Alice Black, ex-Director of The Design Museum, calls him ‘a brilliant poet and creative mind’ and mü, the quarterly culture magazine founded by Youth, called him ‘the strangely most punk poet’. He’s been commissioned by the British Library, Cubitts, Henry Moore Foundation, London Fire Brigade, Politico, Google, V&A, Southbank Centre, British Council, Art Fund, Francis Crick Institute, Canary Wharf, and Cultural Associates Oxford. He regularly creates and releases new artistic projects, most recently holding a 128- minute Happening in Camden about post-truth politics. He was the second most awarded studio in the 2020 D&AD awards.
