Australia – As brands continue to seek notable brand design and brand creation offerings, creative agency Bear Meets Eagle on Fire (BMEOF) has announced a new head, Koen Arbouw, to lead its design team.

BMEOF offers clients teams around any problem or project – from branding and brand creation to design, experience, and communication.

As the new design lead of the agency, Arbouw brings with him wide experience that spans working with design companies including Landor, Maud, and M35. Some of his previous projects were for clients such as Nike, Google, luxury fragrance brand Escentric Molecules, and the AFTRS.

“Bear’s such a unique place where design and advertising are both held in the same regard. I think that’s rare to find and I am excited to be a part of everything that comes next,” said Arbouw, regarding his appointment.

Meanwhile, Micah Walker, the founder of BMEOF, commented, “Koen and I first worked together when he was at Maud years ago. We reconnected when I came back to Sydney and have collaborated on a number of Bear projects over the past couple of years. He’s a proper talent and we’re excited he’s decided to join us.”

One of BMEOF’s most recent campaigns was in May this year with Australia’s fintech Wisr. The campaign includes an ambitiously crafted desktop and mobile experience, co-created with another creative agency, Resn.
