Rightsleeve produces the merchandise for DesignThinkers 2023

Designed by Sid Lee and produced by Rightsleeve, the 2023 DesignThinkers t-shirts and tote bags are an integral part of the conference that allow attendees to carry the experience beyond the 2 days.  


"We love working with clients that have a design-first approach and collaborating with Sid Lee and the RGD was a dream. Merch can be very powerful when it steps beyond the limits of just using a logo, as is the case with this year's DesignThinkers merch," offers Carlos Reina, Account Manager at Rightsleeve
The t-shirts and tote bags for the 2023 conference are created using sublimation and halftone screen printing techniques. "Upon first seeing the main design concept, there was a small amount of concern that we wouldn't be able to achieve the desired end result, due to the minute details in the design. However, we managed to use two of our trusted print vendors that felt very confident in their ability to print this type of design," says Carlos.

Designed to speak to each person differently with contrast handles for a fun pop of colour, the tote bag is the Rightsleeve team's personal favourite.

The merch will be available for purchase at the DesignThinkers taking place in Toronto on November 2–3. View the conference schedule here and register here.
