Entro Communications has announced the acquisition and merger with New York-based CVEDesign. Both firms are highly-regarded environmental graphic design (EGD) firms.
The merger follows a long history of collaborative projects and common values, as well as strong relationships between the founding partners of Entro, Andrew Kuzyk and Wayne McCutcheon, and CVEDesign, Chris Calori and David Vanden-Eynden.
“We’ve enjoyed working on an international scale and we expect this merger will allow us to significantly build upon the established practices of both firms, particularly our on-the-ground presence in the United States,” said Kuzyk and McCutcheon, in a press release.
CVEDesign will bring knowledge, an established team of designers and body of work spanning over 35 years to Entro. Calori and Vanden-Eynden will join the Entro leadership team and will work as principals in Entro’s newly opened New York City office.
“Both firms share kindred values – that EGD plays a helpful, meaningful role in people’s lives, which is accomplished by working hand-in-hand with clients and stakeholders,” added Vanden-Eynden.
The newly consolidated firm will have a total of over 50 employees, adding enhanced resources, client value and opportunities for employees at offices in Toronto, Calgary, New York and Zurich.
