Seymour Powell has merged with Loewy Group stablemate Loewy Brands & Packaging.
The move follows last week’s merger between The Team and Loewy Branding Communications (DW 15 January) and will see Seymour Powell extend its offering into graphic branding.
The merger brings Seymour Powell’s staff level to 85, and the Fulham-based consultancy is looking for new office space to accommodate its growth.
Neil Hirst, director of packaging at Seymour Powell, becomes acting creative director for the packaging offer, while Jonathan Shaw, managing director of Loewy Brands & Packaging, becomes director of the Seymour Powell 2D packaging offer.
Seymour Powell has been working in the structural packaging field for six years, and had been looking to expand its offer into 2D packaging.
