Polly Thurston, M.S.

Creative Director
I love design because it’s a combination of art and strategy. I love Mighty Citizen because it’s the perfect balance of work and fun.”

Polly makes art.

In the moments each day when she isn’t designing websites, logos, and campaigns for clients, Polly is doodling in her notebook. But her doodles are like most people’s finest work. She’s just. that. good.

It’s not mere talent; she’s also put in a ton of work. After earning an art degree from Austin College (in Sherman, TX), she moved to Austin as an AmeriCorps volunteer to work with artists with disabilities, later doing a stint at a local institution: Amy’s Ice Creams. A couple of years later, she moved to New York City to study at the internationally acclaimed Pratt Institute, where she earned her graduate degree in Communication Design. Along the way, she developed an additional skill: a deep understanding of information architecture.

In other words, if you can envision it, Polly can make it.

In her free time, Polly likes to paint, sew, block print, and spend time with her family and friends. (Oh, and catch up on Netflix.)
