Creative Director Paul Fackerell gave a comment "Activate has been planned for several months now and it is good to finally see issue 1 online. With this forward thinking way to delivering visual entertainment and it's interactive nature some people will take a little while to get used to this approach, but in most parts of the world the usage of video and digital delivery to look at a particular subject is standard. Things are moving forward online in the GCC very fast and Activate is looking to be part of that, I really hope people like what I have designed."
