Hans Thiessen


Hans Thiessen is the Creative Director of Design at Rethink. He throws curveball ideas, sweats the details and eats a bowl of laughs for breakfast.

Over the past decade, Hans has helped ambitious clients achieve success including IKEA, Uber, Nike, EA, Molson Coors, WestJet, Shaw, A&W, CBC, Canada Skateboard and The One Club among many others.

Hans’ work has been recognized with over 100 national and international awards, including the prestigious D&AD Black Pencil.

Originally from Calgary, Hans earned a Bachelor of Design Degree from the Alberta College of Art and Design (ACAD).

Outside of work, you’ll find Hans with his wife and four sons – only seven shy of a perfectly kerned soccer team.
