10 Thousand Design announced today that Rhinnan Kith has joined the brand design firm as design director. Kith will bring her extensive brand design and retail experience to direct industry-leading design-centric projects and create brand experiences, from print to digital to fully integrated campaigns.
“Rhinnan has an amazing background and impeccable design sensibilities,” said Ed Bennett, executive design director, 10 Thousand Design. “Design now plays a bigger role in the branding process and the entire marketing communications landscape, and she understands the complex needs of today’s challenging marketplace and can create blended experiences where every brand interaction matters.”
Kith’s 15 years of experience includes design, art and creative direction for print, packaging, advertising, environmental (retail and other), video, social and digital platforms, as well as creative and marketing strategy for brand development. She has worked with some of the world’s best brands and retailers, including PUMA, Nike, Jordan, Adidas, Paul Frank, Burton Snowboards, Schwinn, Nixon, Rip Curl and Quiksilver/Roxy. And she’s collaborated with many award-winning design shops, such as Liquid Agency, Nemo Design, Fiction, Kamp Grizzly and others.
“I was drawn to 10 Thousand Design because of its unique situation — a young, design-focused boutique agency with the support and infrastructure of a full-service ad firm,” said Kith. “I look forward to being an integral part of the agency’s growth during this exciting time when the mandate of design is evolving and growing beyond its traditional scope and becoming an indispensable part of the experience of our lives.”
