Turning SAIF Zone into the ideal business hub to collaborate, grow and prosper in the region

SAIF Zone is a free zone in Sharjah and was looking to find a solution to attract more companies to establish themselves in their jurisdiction. Skyne was requested to help position SAIF Zone better. Working together, we developed a brand strategy and new brand identity that differentiates SAIF Zone from its competitors and turned SAIF Zone into a more attractive location to incorporate. Besides this, new initiatives like Women in Business and Business Connect were launched to serve the target audience better.

FROM INSIGHTS TO STRATEGY

Branding a destination to start your business

Although SAIF Zone is a well established free zone in the UAE, a crowded market place with many competitors with similar offerings, Skyne recognized opportunities to turn it into a more attractive location to establish companies. Skyne developed a powerful brand strategy, positioning and clear principle ‘where businesses connect & grow’ which guides all designs, behaviors and decisions when creating the brand experience. The guiding principle is based on the target audience’s behavior and identified opportunities to stand out as a free zone.

FROM STRATEGY TO DESIGN

Translating ‘where businesses connect & grow’ into a brand identity

After establishing the unique characteristics and reasons for SAIF Zone to be the preferred free zone to set up a company, we created a visual style that communicates these qualities. What sets SAIF Zone apart is transcended in every design we created. The brand identity including all collaterals and guidelines was further implemented in communication tools such as their stationery, signage and way-finding, sub-brands, collaterals, brand guidelines and of course the website.

SAIF Zone promises to be where businesses connect & grow
