“I was lucky enough to spend three intense months getting to know Steve while he was in the School Of Thought programme in 2017. He set out to challenge himself creatively and he did that in a really big way. Steve has a way of looking at briefs from an unexpected angle – one of the best traits in any creative.

School Of Thought forces you to step away from the computer and present ideas in the purest form. Some designers find this quite uncomfortable, but Steve embraced it and used it to his advantage. The result was some really big ideas and exciting presentations.

I very much hope we have the opportunity to work together in the future.”

David Campbell
Creative Director & Founder, School of Thought


“We found working with Steve Daniels at Big Torch a very enjoyable and productive experience. We were very impressed by his professionalism, creativity, communication and simple desire to get a good job done. Steve helped guide us through a well thought out design process, to achieve a final product which we were highly-impressed with. We will definitely be using Big Torch again.”

“Working with Steve at Big Torch on our arts and heritage programme, Behind The Wall, has been a first-rate experience. Across all the various platforms – design, marketing & brand development – he has exemplified clarity of thought, purpose, communication and delivery. What I particularly value is how Steve combines creativity with practicality and explains the whole process intelligently and comprehensively.”
