Ion Brand Design, Herrainco Brand Strategy merge
Two Vancouver-based branding agencies, Ion Brand Design and Herrainco Brand Strategy & Design, have merged. The company will operate as Ion Brand Design and will focus on place branding and destination marketing in the Pacific northwest. Herrainco founding principal Casey Hrynkow and the staff of the agency joined Ion yesterday. The two agencies have worked for destination brands including the Burrowing Owl Winery, Chateau Whistler, the Vancouver Art Gallery, Rocky Mountaineer, the BC Golf Museum and Tourism Vancouver.
"As an expanded team, we will have greater capacity, a deeper breadth of experience and a wider range of creative expertise to bring to each project, which will create a more integrated and fresh experience for our clients," said David Coates, partner and design strategist at Ion Brand Design. "We are elated to have the incredible Herrainco team joining us and look forward to reaching new heights as a place branding agency together."
