Integrated design, advertising, and digital agency Parker Design has launched a new office in Dubai. The move is an extension of the company’s recent growth, which includes new offices in London and Cambridge to be closer to long-standing clients, such as Thomson Reuters and AstraZeneca; and new account wins including Manchester Airports Group, Novartis International AG, and H&T Presspart.
Parker Design has been helping clients connect with their audiences since its inception in 1995, in large part due to the diverse team of creative thinkers, designers, producers, web developers, animators and project managers with expertise across sectors including pharmaceutical, healthcare, education, fintech, professional services, construction, utilities, leisure, travel, medical and retail.
The Dubai office is headed up by Dan Kendrew, who has over 15 years’ experience working both agency and client side on B2C and B2B projects in a wide range of sectors. “Parker always had aspirations of opening an international office,” says Kendrew. “We have several UK and global clients with operations in the UAE: AstraZeneca, Thomson Reuters, Sage, Ecolab, Air Products, Firmenich, Kingspan, to name a few. So this, combined with the fact that Dubai is an exciting hub for global business, innovation and creativity, meant that it was a perfect match for us, and a really easy decision to make. We’re delighted our international dream is now a reality.”
The Dubai office will service the Middle East region. “Our initial focus is to work with Dubai-based businesses, but we will also be looking to work with companies in the neighboring Emirates and Gulf countries,” adds Kendrew.
