Speaker Spotlight: Tippi Thole

Tippi Thole is the happy owner of Bright Spot Studio where she does branding, web and print design for freelancers and small businesses across North America. Before starting her own studio, she worked for 15 years as an art director and designer for a variety of U.S. magazines and newspapers. When she’s not helping clients, you’ll find her knee-deep in a home improvement project, playing in her backyard or salsa dancing way past her bedtime.
