William Colgrove, a rather thin white man with a buzz cut, garbed completely in black, obscuring his smiling face by waving his hands as if to say "I'm embarrased by all this" or possibly he simply hates having his picture taken.

Our People

William Colgrove

Principal, Creative & Technology (he/him) LinkedIn profile

As Threespot’s Chief Creative Officer, William develops and repositions brands through the power of words and pictures. He often serves as a creative director or designer on projects for our clients, having led major redesigns for the likes of ACLU, Planned Parenthood, National Park Service, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Smithsonian Institution, and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.A couple of decades ago, William graduated from the Rochester Institute of Technology with a BFA in graphic design.

Being a glutton for the punishment of Lake Effect Snows and not one to shy away from taking on too much student debt, he promptly re-enlisted to earn his MFA in electronic media design. He began his career developing CD-ROMs and websites for a diverse set of clients like Matchbox, who makes toy cars; and Mercedes Benz, who also makes cars (only they’re very expensive and much larger). Having lost his mentor and moral guidepost at a relatively early age altered the course of how he wanted to use his talent and whatever time he had left; hence Threespot was born.

While his work has been recognized by prestigious competitions and publications, including Communication Arts, New York Festivals, the One Show Interactive, Print, and HOW Magazine, he tries not to think about it too much. William’s professional speaking engagements have run the gamut from AIGA DC, to Creative Mornings DC, to several sessions at SXSW Interactive about life as a creative and managing challenging personalities, of which he is most certainly one.
