Tuire Kontiainen

Managing Partner

What do you do at Bright and how did you get into that?
I’m Managing Partner and Co-Owner of Bright Design. Brand strategist, agency
salesman, account manager, cheerleader and more - every day brings something
different. I committed myself to brand design in a London tube decades ago in a
‘what am I going to do with my life’ moment. Perhaps, I was too serious a young
adult, but it all worked out in the end. I love what I do and having the opportunity
to work with brilliant people.

What rule do you live by? 
Perform at your best when your best is required. Your best is required each day.
– Coach John Wooden

Game of Thrones or Entourage?
Game of Thrones, definitely. I was a Tolkien junkie in the beginning of time.
George R.R. Martin brought new life to the genre.

What was the last book you read?
I recently listened to Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand about World War II hero
Louis Zamperini. I take books over movies any day.

How do you describe yourself in one word?
Determined.

What is the one unique habit or daily ritual you have?
I like to unwind on the road with a good book or podcast. Preferably with the
windows down on PCH.
