Arise News

We are delighted to announce our new relationship with Arise News, a global news network founded by Nigerian publisher Nduka Obaigbena, with bureaus worldwide and studios in London, New York, Johannesburg and Lagos soon to be broadcasting 24 hours-a-day, seven days a week.

Yellow Yoyo were introduced to Arise by longstanding client TIMA (The International Media Associates) who currently lease their 12th floor broadcast facilities to Arise in the same building that we will be developing the new Arise brand space.  The new Arise offices are on the 8th floor of New Zealand House, home of the New Zealand High Commission, in Haymarket, London SW1 opposite the Yellow Yoyo designed TIMA offices.

The multi-million pound space will be their European headquarters and incorporate full broadcast facilities, editing suites, meeting spaces and office space for their network of journalists, technicians, production staff and senior directors.  The office space will provide 21st century working space for around 50 people.

Arise are also leasing other office space on the ground floor mezzanine of New Zealand House, also previously designed and built by Yellow Yoyo, and visual and technological integration between the ground, 8th and 12th  floor spaces is an essential part of the project.

Yellow Yoyo is managing the entire project including concept and detailed design, all construction drawings and project management of the site and application of Arise branding.  Due to the Grade 2 listing of New Zealand House, Yellow Yoyo is also handling all liaison and approvals with Westminster Local Authority.  The project is intended to take four months and will be completed in April 2014.

Arise have an interesting mission, and that is to “reflect the experiences of under-served communities, championing the voices of the African community across all continents and engaging citizens of the world”.
