Thomas Winkelmann

Managing Creative Director

Thomas has held positions as Creative Director at Publicis’s MSLGroup London (formerly SAS), as Art Editor at the Condé Nast Publications Ltd. on titles such as German Vogue, World of Interiors, and GQ, and as a designer at Benetton’s COLORS magazine. His clients have included the World Economic Forum, the Northern Irish Tourist Board, EADS, Coca-Cola, BP, and Alcatel-Lucent.

Marked by an intentional transition from editorial work to culture, organizational, and brand design, Thomas’s creative leadership focuses on inspiring fresh attitudes toward visual narrative and engaging a broad network of creative talent across design and storytelling disciplines.

Thomas believes the best ideas emerge from continually widening the spectrum of sources and references from which his creative teams draw their inspiration.

He relentlessly pursues this conviction leading design at SYPartners.

Thomas holds a BFA from Parsons School of Design.
