Behind the Brand: Grant Gunderson

‘Behind the Brand’ is a blog series that features our most valued asset – the people behind Dunn&Co. – and what inspires them both in and out of the office.

Meet Grant. He’s a Senior Art Director whose strength is package design and weakness is cheesecake. Not only is he passionate about his design work, he’s also dedicated to building the future of Dunn&Co. This Florida native recently relocated to London to help launch the Dunn&Co. UK branch and has been filling his newsfeed with the most beautiful images of Great Britain ever since. We can’t think of a better person to introduce our brand to an international clientele.
