Conran Design Group Adds Ankur Naik

Design and branding agency Conran Design Group has added experienced brand storyteller Ankur Naik as their new Senior Strategist. Working directly to support Managing Director Christina Falzano and the Conran team, Naik will lead projects across brand strategy, naming and expression. Naik’s career is defined by integral roles at a number of high-profile agencies, helping to build everything from massive global brands to buzz-worthy disruptors. As Senior Program Manager at Wolff Olins, his understanding of the importance of collaboration, iteration, and the integration of strategy and design fueled successful work for iconic clients like Google, Spotify, Showtime and AES. He then took those insights to branding and social innovation agency BBMG, where he worked with brands such as Burton, Target and BarkBox to name a few. At Conran, he will be involved in helping the team pitch new work, growing and strengthening the agency’s relationships with new and existing clients and harnessing the worldwide scale and capabilities of the Havas network. Falzano notes, “I am thrilled to have Ankur join the team. His energy, drive and unexpected ideas are exactly what we’re looking for as we continue to grow in the US and think of new ways to create more meaningful and valuable work for our clients.”
