The Edison Agency has made four new appointments in its Sydney office to service the continued growth across key account The Arnott’s Group and the recent appointment to Nestlé Oceania’s strategic packaging design roster.
Over the past 12 months, the culmination of strategic and creative work across the Uncle Toby’s brand and continued growth of projects across The Arnott’s Group portfolio has led to an expanded on-ground Sydney team.
Amber Bonney, founder and managing director of The Edison Group, an award winning independent brand and design consultancy, said, “while remote working has become the norm, the opportunity for a local team supplying Edison’s unique strategy and human centred design approach is something we’re so proud to offer Nestlé and The Arnott’s Group.”
The creative team will be headed up by industry FMCG legend Pedro Merida as design director and senior designer, Roisin Quinn, bringing a combined 30 years of brand and packaging design, along with unique specialist knowledge of the FMCG environment.
The appointments of Niki Beeston as senior account director and account manager, Phoebe Di Nallo bolster the project team, which is headed up by group account director, Steve Wren.
A new Sydney space will soon be announced, and the 10 year celebration coincides with some exciting new product launches;

- Glow – A trends, insights and research division designed to facilitate innovation and inspiration amongst client brand and product teams.
- Design for Good – Edison’s purpose-led initiative to secure a better future by striving to achieve a balance between profit, people and planet.
