Design business Re, part of the M&C Saatchi Group, has expanded its presence in Australia with a new offering in Melbourne, with a team of five led by Creative Director Shannon Bell. This adds to the agency’s offices in Sydney, London, Shanghai, and New York.
“We’ve been working with clients here for a while now, so it feels beyond time for Re to open a dedicated Melbourne office,” said Bell.
“I think we offer something genuinely unique, a real focus on brand as a system of experiences, and a passion for making things that connect with people. I’m very excited to continue building our team here, as well as work more closely with our M&C Saatchi Group partners.”
Bell’s transition to Melbourne follows eight years at Re Sydney, where she led the creative team working across clients including Optus, Commonwealth Bank and Woolworths, with a particular focus on verbal identity projects.
“Re Melbourne is a silver lining from the pandemic,” said Benjamin Harrison, Managing Director, Re APAC. “We were able to hire the best design talent in Australia regardless of location, and so we brought together a team of exceptional brand, digital and verbal designers in Melbourne.”
