Hans Thiessen – Rethink

Hans Thiessen is the Creative Director of Design at Rethink. He’s worked with clients including Nike, EA, Molson Canadian, and the Polaris Music Prize, and his Type Brigade talk he’ll share the background on some of his most typographically distinct projects.

Her work has been recognized by Communication Arts, Applied Arts, HOW, New York Festivals, Uppercase Magazine, and over 50 other international design publications and blogs. Locally in Vancouver and online, she is a staple of graphic design community, and has been one of Type Brigade’s biggest supporters.
