Wrestler names Kris Hermansson creative director

Wrestler has welcomed Kris Hermansson to the team as creative director.

The appointment sees Hermansson move back to New Zealand from Amsterdam where he served as creative director for Resn.

He brings with him storytelling and digital skills as well as a keen sense of smell, which according to the release is the perfect combination for the agency.

Earlier this year, Wrestler co-founder and chief executive Ben Forman was named on the 2019 Forbes Asia 30 Under 30 list and when talking to him about the achievement, he told StopPress the plan for the future is to continue to grow the agency and its storytelling, work with bigger clients and do more of the upfront creative thinking.

"We also want to work with clients to role out content strategies that see us creating stories for them over a period of time that adds up to a stronger brand narrative. That's how you get big results."
