Last year, UK-based design shop Bluemarlin underwent a redesign and repositioning that expanded the agency from a packaging design firm to an international brand consultancy with offices in Europe, America, and Asia.
Now Bluemarlin is installing Mark Gandy to the newly established global brand director post to help connect all of its various services. Gandy will be responsible for providing vision and direction to maintain and grow bluemarlin as a leading brand design consultancy worldwide.
“Mark has a solid track record of driving creative and commercial brilliance," says Bluemarlin co-founder and CEO Andrew Eyles. "With his strong leadership and knowledge of the industry, I’m confident his joining will help unify brand-building activities and provide our clients with the best possible experience at every stage.”
Gandy brings 25 years of industry experience with previous roles as managing director at both JKR and Brandhouse. Working with some of the world’s most prominent companies including Unilever, P&G, Kraft, Diageo and Mars, he has led teams that created award-winning work, securing several accolades from the D&AD, Design Week, the DBA, and the CLIO’s.
“I’m very much looking forward to championing bluemarlin as an international agency known for braver creative solutions,” commented Gandy.
