New Designers V3

New design firm 10 Thousand Design announced today that it is expanding its ranks with the hiring of three new employees. The interdisciplinary brand design firm launched in August with a distinct, agile approach that is driven by innovation, inventiveness and the ever-shifting preferences of today’s consumers. The new employees are:

·       Dustin Yerks, as senior designer. Yerks has more than a decade of experience designing for traditional and digital mediums, specializing in logo and brand identity design. He’s worked on a diverse range of brands, including Allen Edmonds, Allstate, Asics, Harley-Davidson, IBM, Johnson & Johnson and Under Armour.

·       Diana Quenomoen, as senior designer. Quenomoen is known as a hybrid designer, exploring both traditional and interactive design, as well as art direction. She has worked for clients such as Target, Commerce Bank, Phillips Distilling Company, General Mills, MOM Brands and Citibank.

·       Nick Neary, as associate designer. Neary joins the agency making a career move into graphic design after working in numerous marketing positions in creative-focused companies.

“We’re thrilled to add Dustin, Diana and Nick to our team, since they all bring different and incredible experiences and expertise,” said Ed Bennett, founder and executive design director, 10 Thousand Design.

10 Thousand Design evolved within ad agency Colle+McVoy and has a broad mix of clients in retail, consumer packaged goods, and health and wellness. In the last three years, the design group has tripled in size, thanks to new clients that include Target, Align Technology (makers of Invisalign) and Stanford University, as well as to extensive organic growth from existing clients such as Cub Cadet and General Mills.
