Furthermore, Onfire’s clients will benefit greatly from Grant’s extensive experience in developing many of New Zealand’s best-known brands.
“Onfire is one of the country’s emerging branding design agencies,” says Grant. “It’s driven by Onfire’s principal and founder, Sam Allan, and has put together an impressive portfolio of work in its 10 years of operation. I can’t wait to contribute across the business and look forward to watching its talented and energetic team thrive and grow.”
