Gary Stiff, managing partner at Nirvana CPH, said of the merger: “We crafted the phrase ‘Creative Production House’ when Nirvana started 12 years ago, to cover all aspects of brand launches and multi-channel activity. To move things forward we needed a global partner who shared in our passion to create. So we are very excited to join the Paperhat Group as through its network we can enable global launches for all our customers. We look forward to sharing our joint expertise and delivering great creative solutions to a wider audience”.
