Andrea: Andrea Tétrault is a partner at Tétro, a creative agency in Winnipeg co-founded in 1998 with her husband Paul. Yes, she's that old. Passionate and outspoken, she believes firmly in the value of good design, and has spent her career trying to create things that matter. She spends most of her time bossing people around, answering emails, and going for nice lunches, but they still let her design sometimes – which keeps her balanced and happy. She served as president of the Manitoba Chapter of the Graphic Designers of Canada and continues to be a proud member of the local and national design community. In her 'spare time', Andrea is an avid cyclist, hockey mom, wine enthusiast (because hockey mom), and sometime author of the blog “Winnipeg CycleChick”.
Paul: It takes guts to start a business with your spouse. Some might even suggest a touch of masochism. But in 1998, a month before they were married, and in spite of dire warnings from friends and family, Paul and Andrea founded Tétro. Fast forward twenty years – business is booming, and they are still happily married.
As principal, partner and creative director at Tétro, Paul oversees designers in the studio and provides overall design direction. Paul is also a key member of the design team, providing elegant and impactful design solutions, some of which have won national and international acclaim. His mission is to ensure all creative work coming out of Tétro is held to the absolute highest of standards — challenging his team to consider better ways to integrate smart thinking and visual solutions. He is a professional member of the Graphic Designers of Canada and treasures the colleagues he calls friends — locally, nationally and across the border. When he’s not designing Paul loves playing dad, husband and right wing.
