Jeff Harrison, creative director and partner at Rethink, is leaving the agency to start up his own studio.

Harrison, who started with Rethink in 2004, was behind the agency’s design division and made partner in 2009.

Harrison would not provide details of his new studio until after his departure from Rethink on Feb. 1, but said in a news release that he was leaving on good terms.

“It’s a great agency full of smart people, and I’m very proud to have had a hand in helping to build it,” he said. “I’m making this move because it’s always been my career goal. I felt like it was time to take on a new challenge.”

Prior to joining Rethink, Harrison worked at Karacters Design Group at DDB Vancouver.
