Kim Thompson has been a designer in the film and music industry for over ten years. She finds inspiration for her distinctive creations in everything from horror films and industrial music culture, to philosophical musings, to visionaries like Clive Barker, Aubrey Beardsley, and Stanley Kubrick. Neo-Victorian styles, elegant machines, and fetish allure have also been a tremendous influence.


I started Dark Mind Design in May of 2010 to produce distinctive items that were sophisticated enough for a night out, but subtle enough for every day use. Dark Mind Design apparel, prints, jewelry and fragrances exist within a wide gamut of genres, but all have the dark twist that I set out to create. Everything you see is designed by me, and I do the hand work as well. I have no minions. Because the apparel is hand screened, the fragrances hand-mixed, and the jewelry hand-made, each piece will be slightly different.

I hope you enjoy my products and check back often to see what new items are on the horizon. Better yet, look at our upcoming events and come out to see me in person. Not only are events the best place to see everything Dark Mind has to offer, but they are also just fabulous events in general with many things to see and do.

If you can’t make it to any of the listed events, you can purchase Dark Mind Design items on Etsy, and soon, my items may be available in specialty boutiques online as well.

The best way to keep up with Dark Mind is to “like” my face book page. And, of course, you can always contact me directly with any questions or requests.

Thank you for your interest,
