Rethink Canad Case Study
A company I would like to work for is Rethink Canada. Rethink is an advertising agency located in Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal (Canada, 2016). The owner-operated company launched in 1999 in Vancouver by the founders Chris Staples, Ian Grais and Tom Shepansky (Canada, 2016). They offer jobs in departments like, advertising, design, social, digital, and product innovation. The company cares about their employees and well-being with focusing on work/life balance. Rethink has around 51-200 employees and is privately held (Corporations, 2016). In 2015, the company won bronze for the “agency of the year” award (Haynes, 2015).

These skills are essential towards reaching my ultimate goal. Furthermore, art directors and their creative team needs to know how to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. By the time I graduate, I want to know and have broaden these skills. Secondly, when I graduate I want to find a job that evolves into an art director. To become an art director, I need to be a designer for typically between three to seven years (Sharavsky, 2016).

After graduating I would like a designer job within three years. Finally, my last goal is to have an outstanding portfolio in the next seven years. Agencies now a days are not only looking for a physical portfolio, but also a website you created explaining your personal brand (Castillo, 2016).
