Brandspank grows its team by four

Following a year of sustained growth in 2021, indie creative and design agency Brandspank has bolstered its team to allow for continued delivery of client solutions, whilst also strengthening its digital offering.

Brandspank Managing Director Kurt Bradley has enthusiastically welcomed the new hires.

“It’s been a really busy Q1 so we’re excited to have an influx of talent to the agency – we know our clients will benefit from the skills and smarts they bring to the table,” he says.

Helen Prangley has been appointed as Brandspank’s Client Services Director, overseeing the team. With over 17 years’ experience, Prangley is an influential and accomplished business leader. With experience managing large and multinational clients like Air New Zealand and Frucor, she provides well-honed strategic intuition and establishes a professional, honest and collaborative partnership with clients.

“I wish I had met the team at Brandspank 10 years’ ago. Smart, strategic, and just really lovely humans, no understatement in our industry. The work they have done with Winton, Glorious, Northbrook and other clients is not only inspiring but has led to tangible business growth. That’s what excites me, when you get to work alongside clients as partners in their growth,” says Prangley.

Joe Fraei has been added to the team to work alongside Prangley. Fraei first cut his teeth in media sales before making the leap agency side. He’s no stranger to high profile, fast turnaround, multi-channel campaign work, previously managing campaigns for international retail brands Bunnings and JB Hi-Fi.

Brandspank has also bolstered its digital offering bringing Tyla Kvalsvig on board to lead digital and social strategy solutions. Kvalsvig is a seasoned marketer and creative thinker, with a results focused and data led methodology that drives lead generation and campaign visibility.

Rounding out the hires is Nicole Canuto, an exciting and AD21 award winning talent fresh out of AUT design school. Canuto joins the industrious Brandspank design team with a versatile skillset, eye for detail, as well as an impressive table tennis game.

“We’re really pumped about 2022,” says Bradley.

“We’re better equipped than ever to deliver great outcomes for our clients. We are helping bring several new brands to market this year, and look forward to welcoming new clients to the Brandspank way of working – while having a bit of fun along the way.”
