Emakina, which already operates in 18 countries around the globe, announces its first foray onto the continent.

Emakina, a prominent European digital agency, has announced that it is taking its first step onto the African continent by opening an office in Cape Town. The agency already has 26 offices in 18 countries and sees opportunities in Africa as part of a global growth strategy.

The launch of the full-service user-centric digital creative hub in the city will also bring “compelling” work opportunities, Emakina said. Expertise being sought includes art directors, design strategists, digital project managers and UX designers.

“By expanding into South Africa, we bring much-needed stimulation of opportunity to the country’s creative professional workforce,” says Karim Boutaour, Acquisition and Integration Director for the Middle East and Africa.
