Hartnady concludes: "Everything we do at Grey Design is the culmination of our passion, dedication and search for great design that makes things better. Design that converts. Design that performs. Design that astonishes. Great design delivers, but when rational meets emotional, form meets function, art meets science, that’s when great design evokes emotion, delivers an experience and ignites a passion. This exciting new chapter will continue to steer us to create famous new brands, reinvent existing brands and help brands stand out through Grey’s famously effective design."
