    Aaron Turner is the newest partner in Melbourne-based design business Disegno.

Independent strategic design agency, Disegno, welcomes Aaron Turner as partner alongside founders Marino Di Camillo and Alan Jane.

Turner was previously general manager, and then went on to take the position of Head of Strategy and Client Partnerships to work more closely with clients in identifying and realising strategic and creative brand opportunities.

Managing director, Alan Jane said, “I'm so proud of the client list we've developed, the calibre of the team we've built, our culture and the work we're producing. It's truly the most exciting time of Disegno's nearly thirty year history, and Aaronr has played a significant role in that.”

Founded in 1995, Disegno has helped worked alongside some of Australia's most recognisable brands including Bega, Vegemite, Aldi, Darrell Lea, Don Smallgoods, Sirena Tuna, Rosella and Leggo's. The company points out the name Disegno is actually a tribute to the brand language it created for its foundation client: “Authentico. Classico. Delicioso.”

Turner said, “We're in the business of helping clients navigate critical brand change. We do this with relentless creative energy and our collaborative approach is defining our difference. From market-leaders to challengers and new brands, our clients are realising truly authentic and effective solutions that are differentiated and distinctive in their categories.”

Global food and beverage solutions company, Tate & Lyle, has acquired nature-based ingredients company CP Kelco for US$1.8 billion on a cash-free, debt-free basis. Tate & Lyle said the deal will “significantly accelerate” its growth plans.
