The Association of Registered Graphic Designers has named Jamie and Lyndon Cormack, Co-Founders of Herschel Supply Co., as Canada's 2019 DesignThinkers of the Year. The Award is given annually to Canadian corporate leaders who have incorporated design into their organizations to achieve business objectives and drive innovation.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Herschel Supply is a design-driven global lifestyle brand that produces timeless products with utility design. Founded in 2009 by brothers Jamie and Lyndon Cormack, Herschel Supply originally was renowned for their contemporary renditions of classic backpack silhouettes, but their range has since expanded to include luggage, headwear, accessories, apparel and more.
"Design is everything to Herschel," explained Jamie, the eldest of the two co-founding brothers. "It permeates every single aspect of the brand from product innovation to consumer experience. We're thrilled to be recognized as DesignThinkers of the Year among so many other talented peers in the industry."
