Chad Mackenzie, national CCO, said Bhanji’s appointment was a gamechanger for whiteGREY supporting the agency’s ongoing investment in outstanding talent. Having such a powerful creative and design thinker on the team will provide new perspective for clients and expands the agency’s brand design offering giving it a “designated home”.

Bhanji was previously with The General Store as creative director and prior to that was the founder of Flying Fish Designs. She brings a wealth of experience from both agency and client side (Merivale and Bendon) to the agency.
Her expansive retail experience is garnered from working across brands such as Freedom, Rebel Sport, Aesop and Glasshouse Fragrances where she created award-winning campaigns and also lead strategy and creative thinking to create in-store spatial design experiences.
Bhanji said of her appointment: “While design thinking is a critical component of the creative process, my true passion lies in collaborating with my team and our clients to identify solutions that can genuinely foster the growth of their business.
“This human-centric approach is what drives great creative and design, and I’m thrilled to bring this perspective to both whiteGREY and its clients.”
