- Chairman, Chief Creative Officer
- Stanley Hainsworth grew up in a small town in Western Kentucky, right between Possum Trot and Monkey's Eyebrow. After pursuing an acting career for some years he embarked on a new profession, spending several years at Nike as a creative director before moving to Denmark to join the Lego Company as their Global Creative Director. Stanley returned to the U.S. to work for Starbucks where he thought it would be fun to work for a company named after the first mate in Moby Dick. Stanley lead and oversaw all creative aspects of Starbucks Coffee Company with his team of illustrators, designers, web designers, writers and art directors. He recently left Starbucks to start Tether, his own creative company where he pursues his love for all things hand-crafted.
