SYZYGY Group has increased their shareholding in Warsaw-based agency Ars Thanea from 26 to 70 percent with effect from 06 February 2014. The remaining shares remain with the management of the company. 

Ars Thanea has some 50 employees and is internationally known for their high-quality work in the field of digital illustration, animation and interactive design. Co-Founder Peter Jaworowski has been repeatedly named a Top 10 talent within AdWeek?s Talent List. 

Also, the gaming division of the company - AT Games - has earned an international reputation for being a games developer: The iPhone / iPad game "Puzzle Craft" has been downloaded almost 4 million times so far and has won numerous awards, including "Best of 2012" (Apple), "25 Best iOS Games ever" (IGN.com), Webby Awards, DICE 2013 and Appy Awards 2013. 

Their next blockbuster "Another Case Solved" will be available for iOS by the end of February, whilst the next platforms for the game will be Android, Windows 8, Windows Phone 8 and PC. 

Marco Seiler, CEO of SYZYGY Group: "Peter Jaworowski, Bartlomiej Rozbicki and PawellPiotrzkowski have built a company, a team full of extraordinary talent. The results of the collaboration between Ars Thanea and other SYZYGY Group entities has been amazing with SYZYGY Group clients, such as Chanel and Paramount already benefitting from their skills. We are delighted that Ars Thanea is a full member of the family now and look forward to delivering more outstanding work for our clients across the world." 

Bartlomiej Rozbicki, CEO of Ars Thanea: "We have been cooperating closely with SYZYGY for over four years now. Over these years we have learned that we share the same values, not only as companies but also as people. Being part of the Group will stabilize our position in foreign markets, both in Europe and the US, but what's even more important is the fact that joining forces will allow us do even more extraordinary things. In our competitive market we were looking for an independent and flexible partner and SYZYGY Group fits the bill perfectly for us at this stage of our development. Without a doubt everyone will benefit from the strengthening of this relationship." 

Ars Thanea`s client list includes (to name but a few) renowned brands such as Chanel, Discovery Channel, General Electric, Nike, Nutricia, Nvidia, Ubisoft and Visa.
