Luke Thompson
Senior Designer

Growing up on a Papamoa dairy farm, Luke is as comfortable milking a cow as he is creating one of his design masterpieces. After falling in love with art from a young age and realising he was a natural, Luke made the smart decision to carve out a career in the design industry.

As lead designer on several of WOODS’ Best Award winning projects, Luke has crafted an enviable CV and quickly established himself as a force within the design industry. A year in Melbourne saw Luke return to the Woods team with fresh ideas, ready to produce more work that will touch people’s hearts and minds.  

Luke has set himself some lofty heights for the future, including the prestigious ‘yellow pencil’ at the D&AD Awards, to become one of New Zealand’s premier Art Directors – and to one day direct his own design agency.
