Creative content agency Bonfire Labs continues its growth with the addition of three top-level hires: executive producer Tim Pries, producer John Hunt and designer Judy Leung. The company, which grew by 33% last year, sees the hires as a means “to accommodate burgeoning client demand and enhance its staff infrastructure.”

Executive producer Tim Pries is already a familiar face around Bonfire Labs, having worked with many of the Bonfire crew throughout his career. His most recent collaboration came while he was an executive producer at Google’s Brand Studio. Before that position, Pries served as executive producer at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners’ post/motion division, eLevel, where he worked alongside several Bonfire alums creating work for the likes of TDAmeritrade, Chevy, Sprint, HP, Adobe, Cisco, YouTube, NBA and Comcast. He began his career at the San Francisco based VFX studio, Radium.

John Hunt arrives at Bonfire following eight seasons as a live-action producer on the Discovery Channel’s MythBusters. His resume also includes work on Emmy Award-winning legal drama The Practice, and showson FOX, Animal Planet, and Australia’s Nine Network. In addition, Hunt “has been a presenter on educational programming at the National Science Teachers Association Conference, and produced digital media for Discovery in partnership with General Electric.”

Judy Leung “is accomplished in multiple design disciplines, ranging from graphic design and typography through to photo color correction and retouching.” She has previously worked with the Pacifica Chamber of Commerce, Hyphen Magazine and as a team lead for Minted.

“We are pleased to add these uniquely talented individuals to the roster of talent already at Bonfire Labs,” said Bonfire Labs’ managing director Jim Bartel. “Each of them will make a valuable contribution as we continue to leverage our unique position in the industry.”
