Set in the creative district of Rosebank, the move is part of Jellyfish’s expansion into the EMEA, Asian and North American markets.
"Jellyfish has been operating successfully in Durban for 10 years," says Jellyfish managing director, Tim Lombard. "During this time, we have built an excellent reputation with notable brands in the digital landscape."
"Our Rosebank office is a tactile commitment to our brand’s expanding client-centric footprint and is also an excellent means by which to accommodate our growing complement of digital experts," adds Lombard.
Jellyfish, one of two Google accredited sales partners in South Africa, says its carefully selected digital partnerships are one of the reasons the company is able to offer clients innovative business solutions.
"We’re receptive to working with both brands and traditional media agencies because we’re able to offer such a specialised area of expertise," says Lombard.
The Rosebank Link office space has been designed with the intention of encouraging collaborative partnerships in the pursuit of solution-oriented business objectives.
"Smart companies know that knowledge-based collaboration can drive overall success and performance," says EMEA managing director, Ed Ball. "We are constantly adapting, evolving and innovating."
London-based chief executive, Rob Pierre, says, "We’ve envisaged a conduit of international thought leaders serving as a frontrunner for dynamic creative and expediting learnings around new technologies."
The company is set to host many industry events in this space, where they say they are eager to learn and share with the country’s best digital innovators and influencers.
Jellyfish will also now be running classroom and private training sessions from the Johannesburg office, located next to the Gautrain.
"We’re excited about the South African market. There’s definitely an opportunity to upskill the digital capabilities of brands, CMOs and CTOs using a stable of robust technology platforms and proven case studies," says Pierre.
"We believe our new office is perfectly positioned to offer the ambitious brand the opportunity to explore a progressive strategy that is supported by specialised industry experts," he adds.
To celebrate the launch of the new Johannesburg training location, Jellyfish has invited members of industry and digital influence to attend the first training session: an exclusive one-day digital workshop.
The course is designed to provide activities and insights into the main digital channels, including search engine optimisation, social media, Google Ads and Google Analytics.
