Limelight began in Dubai with an iMac in a spare bedroom in the midst of the 2009 financial crisis.

Despite the economic turmoil of the time, the vision for Limelight was to create a new kind of design firm, one that broke a few barriers and did somethings differently.

The goal was to not only develop an agency that offered a range of services that was broader than anyone else, but to also create a collaborative design culture based on exploration, curiosity & innovation.

That culture and service offering, in combination with quite a few late nights, enabled the firm to grow into the multi-faced company it is today working across the MENA region on shopping mall, hotels, healthcare, hospitality, commercial and education projects.
