Ladies, Wine & Design is pleased to partner with Thinkific to bring you an intimate and inspiring evening with guest speakers Andrea Merson, Director of Marketing & Creative and Chuiee (Chungwon) Yang, Senior Product Designer at Thinkific. This is the launch of a new series where we invite you into a local, creative Vancouver studio or office to get a behind-the-scenes peek at what they’re all about and a chance to meet some of the amazing ladies powering these creatively driven operations. Our speakers will chat about their current roles, design specialties and the abundance of experience leading up to their work today. The event is hosted by Denise Villanueva and ECU alum Stephanie Ganea.

Meet The Organization & Speakers

Thinkific is a software platform that enables entrepreneurs to create, market, sell, and deliver their own online courses. Our mission is no less than to revolutionize the way people learn and earn online by giving them the tools they need to turn their expertise into a sustainable business that impacts both them and their audience.

Andrea Merson Director of Marketing & Creative
Andrea Merson is the Director of Marketing & Creative at Thinkific. She plays most at the intersection between business and design. With a background in both Entrepreneurship and Industrial design, she focuses on giving design projects the structure and marketability to take effect, while injecting business projects with the design thinking and creativity that’s so often left out. When she’s not supporting entrepreneurs with Thinkific, you can find her crafting intricate cakes, designing tech-centered kids toys, and getting her hands’ dirty building bespoke furniture.

Chuiee Yang Senior Product Designer
Chungwon Yang, more commonly known as Chuiee (pronounced “chewy”), is a Senior Product Designer at Thinkific. She made the leap of faith into UX/UI design from graphic design just over five years ago, previously having worked on everything from packaging design to digital marketing campaigns and analytics SaaS applications. She strives to combine creativity and objective reasoning to craft meaningful user experiences.
