Cade Thurlby 

A native Chicagoan, Cade has traded the harsh winters near the Great Lakes for the warmer climate of North Carolina. He became interested in design while experimenting with photography manipulation in high school. This led him to discover digital design on his computer, where he was truly infected by the “design bug.” A trip to North Carolina to visit his girlfriend would prove fruitful when designer Rachel Walker referred Cade to Phillip Oakley, which resulted in an interview and graphic design position. By designing consumer-packaged goods for the past 5 years, Cade brings this creative insight to Common Giant.
