The branding studio of Brian Thompson. Freelance copywriter and creative director.

play in the intersection of words, art and commerce

When I’m not building brands for clients, I experiment with my own.

These are my current labors of love:

I launched and run LasersMakeItAwesome.com, a business that does custom laser engraving for events and brands.

I'm building an ecommerce business called PartyHatsForGrownups.com that sells well-designed party hats. 

I'm a co-founder of CreativeMornings/Austin and manage our content team.

Past projects:

Permanent140.com turns tweets into physical works of art. It has been honored by The Webby Awards and featured on the Side Hustle School podcast,  Swiss Miss, PSFKDesign Taxi, and more

My first art show explored the theme "Use Your Fear As Fuel." Attendees burned their greatest fear in a fire pit.

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter, Passive Aggressive Notepads can solve your most annoying problems. 

eBook Safes hide your Kindle in a real book. They were featured by The New York Times, Gizmodo and Boing Boing.

I created this Lonely Valentine's Day card for people who don't like Valentine's Day.

I once sold everything I owned on eBay. AllMyLifeForSale.net examined how identity is shaped by objects and brands. By telling the story of each item and selling it to the highest bidder, its true emotional and financial value was discovered.
