Manish noted that from concept, strategy, design, coding and copywriting, which was done by young Kenyan designers, the website represents a locally generated journey into how the firm wants to tell African stories for both brands and people.
“These incredible designers went out of their way to create a powerful digital storybook. It is a visual representation of an ethos that Squad Digital is cultivating to increase value to clients by delivering experience beyond face – value”, said Mr. Sardana.
The recognition comes even as Kenyan innovators in ICT continue to make in-roads into the innovation space with creative ideas that have changed how brands interact with the continent. According to Mr. Sardana, this is a step in the right direction for Kenya’s top creative and technology minds and should inspire more creativity for novel ideas which will open up more opportunities for wealth creation. Mr. Sardana believes that Kenya has the capacity and resolve to play at the global level and create solutions that impact on people’s lives.
“The Squad Digital website points to the very heart of who we are as a people and the culture we want to create in Africa. It tells a story of where we have been and paints an image of where we are heading. We are honored because this recognition will help us tell Kenyan stories to an even larger audience” added Mr. Sardana.
