Thom Rockliff

Creative Director | Director of Hot

Thom was a curious boy, prone to daydreaming, drawing outside the lines, and fabricating elaborate stories. Luckily the education system failed to remove his imagination during the time they had him in their charge – their loss is Whirl's win.

Thom uses his ability to generate ideas to help leading brands deliver sharp, compelling, and captivating creative to a wide range of audiences. Give him your complicated, your elaborate, or your hopelessly confusing content and watch him transform it into creative that sings.

But ideas are just part of the story. Thom loves the entire production process. From the smallest smartphone screen to the largest live stage, Thom brings a wealth of production and creative knowledge that delivers clarity in fresh and compelling ways.

He earned his stripes during his time as a producer, creative director, and partner at the St. John Group. For over three decades, Thom has been creating live events, tradeshow experiences, and interactive environments, for clients such as Bell, BlackBerry, KPMG, CAE, Cisco, Castrol, Nissan, AT&T, Bell Labs, and MaRS Innovation to name a few.

In 2017, Thom returned from the UK where he was the CMO of an innovative automotive software start-up. He established the brand, set the marketing vision, and developed the digital strategy through two successful rounds of venture funding.

When Thom is not helping his clients, you might find him working on a socially responsible start-up, making a racket in his music studio, or cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
