Stuart Watson


A legend in the world of design, Watson is the co-founder of Nomad and has worked with some of the biggest brands in the world. Hear how it all started - as a junior designer - and how he went on to create an agency whose work is seen by billions of people, every day!


Whilst at Wolff Ollins he co-created the brand for ‘Oi’ – Brazil’s fastest ever start-up to reach one million customers, winning a Guinness World Record and Grand-Prix at The DBA Awards!

In 2003 he left to join venturethree where he went on to create brands for Sky, The Times, Little Chef, and King; who’s IPO valued them at US$7.08 billion. In 2015, Stuart joined Design Studio as ECD, winning the pitch to rebrand Premier League. A year later, fed up with being an employee, Stuart quit to start Nomad with a maxed-out Amex card as funding. Their first project was the rebrand of Sky Sports.

Nomad now has a roster of clients including Premier League, Disney, Sky, The FA, Natural History Museum and Rolls Royce. Nomad is also the proud sponsor of Hackney Laces, a community supported and run football club for girls who want to play football and learn new skills, on and off the pitch.

Stuart has had articles published in Fast Company, Muse by Clio, Campaign Magazine, Tortoise, Design Week, and Creative Review, and has been a D&AD judge, and Chair of AGDA, Australia.
