Ten New Designers Hired
Independent advertising agency The Many has welcomed ten new designers to its design studio. The expansion allows the agency to enhance its existing capabilities from social and digital content to brand identity while expanding to include a complete portfolio of design services such as packaging, UX/UI, key art, illustration and animation. The studio is led by Jorge Andrade, Director of Design at The Many, who, over the years, has helped grow the team as an integral part of the agency’s holistic approach to solving business challenges – providing design solutions that come from a place of strategic and creative thinking. The expansion supports agency-wide growth that has amounted to over 100 new hires thus far in 2021.
“As a design studio, we benefit from being part of an integrated agency to create a more holistic approach to visual branding that is informed by media, crafted through strategy, and given a personality and point of view through our creative,” said Andrade. “We put a lot of emphasis on design because the power a perfectly curated campaign brings to the world – it is what distinguishes brands in the sea of sameness when it comes to the content we engage with day-to-day.” The Many has also made five promotions within its design studio. As a DREAMer, Andrade has made it a priority to open the doors for people like himself to break into the advertising industry. Shina Kim-Avalos, a DREAMer as well, was recently promoted from intern to designer and made her way to The Many after learning about Andrade’s story through the agency’s Voices program.
