Interbrand has promoted design director Megan Schierhout to associate creative director.

Schierhout will lead creative for Interbrand in Australia, using design to develop brand solutions for a range of clients, while also overseeing the creative talent within the team.

She has been a design director with the brand consultancy since 2021, working across a number of Australian brands including McDonald’s, Coles, Sydney Fish Market, and Dulux.

Schierhout has previously worked with prominent design agencies, Re (part of the M&C Saatchi Group), Designworks (owned by WPP), and Sydney-based consultancy ET Collective, where she worked on brands such as Optus, UNSW, ActionAid, and The Benevolent Society.

Her promotion at the brand consultancy comes as it continues to invest internally and develop its talent.

Nathan Birch, CEO of Interbrand Australia, said: “Megan is set to bring a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective to her new role. Throughout her tenure at Interbrand, Megan has consistently demonstrated exceptional creative skills, delivering outstanding work and nurturing client relationships to foster creative and strategic outcomes.

“Her leadership has been instrumental in promoting a collaborative and innovative environment within the creative team.”

“As she steps into her new role, Megan’s vision and approach will undoubtedly contribute to the company’s continued success and growth,” Birch added.

Schierhout said of her new role: “I came to Interbrand as a contractor, initially attracted by the client names but was quickly won over by the people. The team is a standout – a rare mix of truly talented and nice individuals. So, after three years here, I’m incredibly honoured and proud to step into the creative lead role.

“I’m excited to continue challenging both myself and the team to deliver beautifully crafted, meaningful ideas for clients and their communities, and to contribute to Interbrand’s iconic legacy,” said Schierhout.
