Pomegranate (aka. POM8) (http://www.pom8.com), a leading digital agency and creative talent network, announced today that they will be expanding their business into Brazil, growing their international presence into the South American market.

The Brazil office includes a team of five other advertising experts brought on board to build the business by providing a wider range of services for their existing clients and offer more in-depth creative service projects and interactive marketing campaigns being on-site. The Brazil team has worked with the likes of L’Oreal, Huawei, Globo TV, Pão de Açúcar Supermarket Group, Technos and Petrobras.
