Skyne, the Dutch-founded international branding and design consultancy, has expanded its company to open an office in Abu Dhabi’s media hub, twofour54.
Skyne’s Abu Dhabi office will be the fourth in the company’s portfolio, following the opening of hubs in Netherlands, Dubai and Lebanon. Skyne’s head office opened in Dubai in 2008 and the company has since established a solid roster of local and international clients.
Dennis de Rond, Founder of Skyne, said: “We strongly believe that Abu Dhabi is going through massive transformation and growth plans for the future. Skyne sees plenty of opportunities to partner with twofour54 and Abu Dhabi-based companies on their exciting projects that are born out of creative visions with a human-centric focus and spirit of innovation. Skyne definitely aspires to be part of this journey across various sectors. We’re proud to be continuing our expansion during this globally challenging time and hope that our announcement sends a message of hope, optimism and resilience to business owners in the UAE and around the world.”
Katrina Anderson, Director of Commercial Services at twofour54, said: “We are consistently seeing that Abu Dhabi is an ideal base for companies looking to expand further across the Middle East and North Africa. For media firms, there are huge opportunities in the region thanks to its innovative and pioneering new companies. We are delighted that Skyne has chosen twofour54 as its next hub and they join some of the region’s most dynamic creative leaders who value our collaborative ecosystem and industry-leading facilities and services.”
Skyne opened its new branch with support from the Dutch Embassy.
H.E. Lody Embrechts, Ambassador of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the UAE, said: “Over the years, Skyne has established itself as one of the strategic branding and design agencies in Dubai. The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the UAE is delighted to experience the opening of the Skyne office at twofour54 in Abu Dhabi. Skyne stands for creativity, innovation, pragmatism and resilience – Dutch traits we are happy to bring to the table. We look forward to supporting the agency’s ambitions and appreciate its contribution to the strong UAE-Netherlands friendship.”
Skyne has advised more than 150 companies in the MENA region including Abu Dhabi Terminals, Shurooq, Sharjah Media City, Dubai Chamber of Commerce and industry, Deloitte and many more.
