A Brand Rebirth: International Brand Embraces Its Dubai Pride With Studio 77

Posted on March 9, 2017 at 2:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Katch International was appointed to help with the branding for this new concept of theirs and the brief was simple – we needed to create a brand that reflected international standards but still stayed true to its regional roots. With this in mind, we came up with a contemporary monochrome logo and the name Studio 77, which is an ode to the street number the brothers grew up on that now serves as the studio’s address. The logo also embodies the chic essence the Sharawis were so keen on capturing and incorporates a camera’s viewfinder icon. 

While zeroing in on a name, we were conscious of the fact that we needed to communicate that the Sharawi’s latest offering was not just restricted to kids’ photography but also extended towards diverse areas such as photography for weddings, families, schools and nurseries, corporate clients and products. This led us to choosing an elegant colour palette for all branding collaterals that featured black, white, grey and bronze.

With one-and-a-half years of experience running a brand that focused on childrens’ photography, brothers Hamad and Abdalla Sharawi have steadily built a loyal clientele and reputation for themselves.

The seed for their new venture Studio 77 was born when they realised that Dubai has a pressing need for photography at a luxury level. Studio 77 is an attempt to diversify their areas of expertise while drawing upon their existing strengths.

A passion for quality and a need to retain the story-telling elements of art drives everything they do. There is also a high level of respect for every portrait and a team of three qualified photographers with highly-specialised skills ensures that every client leaves satisfied.

The personalised elements of the brand are apparent in everything they do right from the name Studio 77, which was inspired by the street number the brothers grew up on and now serves as the address for the studio. With Studio 77, Hamad and Abdalla aspire to create an inspiring space that allows clients to recreate some of their most treasured memories.

After building a loyal clientele and strong reputation for themselves by introducing an international brand that focuses on children's photography to Dubai, it was time for our clients to begin a new chapter with their own (then unnamed) brand. While the vision for this exciting concept of theirs was clear from the onset, they were certain that the final product had to adhere to the highest international standards, as this is a quality they have become synonymous with.

Roux Dubai: From Ideation To Execution

Posted on February 6, 2017 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Rustic, earthy and homely were the three words that we were certain needed to be highlighted in any branding and communications that were created for Roux. From the restaurant's location at City Walk to its open interior design, it was evident that we needed to create a brand that was aligned with this message.


Our work started by using a clean typeface to reflect the simplicity of the brand. We also used a mixture of raw materials such as marble, wood and metal across the branding of all items from menus to coffee cup and cutlery holders and even sugar sachets. We think we have achieved the winning look and feel for a great brand like Roux.
