Nick Thompson

Creative Technology Director

I’m the Creative Technology Director at Foolproof and the founding partner of Knit, our creative technology studio. My role within Foolproof is to help our clients understand and experiment with new technology. Through this we uncover new business opportunity and deliver engaging customer experience. 

As well as being part of the senior team, I’m still hands on with creative projects. My particular skills are around conceptual thinking and problem-solving where people and technology come together in the physical world. While the ideas we come up with may be experimental or playful I pride myself on keeping things grounded in creating real benefit, in the real world. 

I’ve been involved in creative technology and digital design for over twenty years, right back to the early days of multimedia. I was joined the Macromedia developers group when it had less than 20 members. My early career involved interaction design and programming before moving into roles focused on conceptual thinking and agency management. 

In the decade before starting Knit, I was one of the founding partners of the digital agency Soup. During my time I’ve been lucky enough to work with brands like Sky, Nissan, Innocent, Hiut Denim, Lucozade, HP, Volvo, Absolut, Smart and John Lewis. If you wind all the way back, my first job was as a design (in the pre-digital age) before joining the Royal Navy as an electronics engineer. 

Outside of Foolproof I enjoy football, art, sailing and spending time with my family. Not in that order!
