I have worked with all kinds of creative people and designers over the years. Many of them highly talented and inspiring, and Rami definitely belongs in that group. The great thing about Rami is he never approaches a brief freely. He always takes a step back, tries to understand what is needed and asks a million questions before getting started on any project. He is both a creative thinker and strategist which explains why his designs always stands out from the clutter. And his work ethic is second-to-none, always following a project through till the very end, from creation to implementation. Oh, and he’s a pretty good DJ too, just sayin’. I would recommend Rami to anyone without a moment’s hesitation.
How can I help?
My approach to brand strategy is a balanced one. Not too much, not too little, but enough to create clarity to bridge the gap over to good design.
I know how hard it is to come up with a name for your business, company, or idea. We can set up a brainstorming session to crack this.
Once we have a proper brief and all questions have been answered we start playing with ideas, visually. This is an exciting part of the process that spans all the way from logo design, typography, and color exploration, down to the smallest brand assets. This is your look!
You may already have an established brand but feel that things are outdated, inconsistent, and require some realignment. I can come in and help audit, analyze, and structure a new plan to move the brand image into a more sustainable direction.
I can help inspire, as well as guide other creatives who are brought on to fulfill various tasks within a project.
You may wonder what this is all about. I love tackling all sorts of creative exercises and do not limit my design thinking to visuals. I am always up for exciting new challenges.
Seeing projects through to the end usually requires a production layer. This is where a lot of the magic actually happens. Whether it is a carpenter executing a shelving unit, for retail, printing jobs, or a leather craftsman putting together a customized menu for a restaurant. I can manage the process and make sure things are done right.
My curiosity has always fueled my problem-solving skills. That same curiosity pushed me to explore a number of different creative industries over the years ranging from animation, branding, publishing, advertising, and teaching. And the learning continues.
Since 2014, I have been working independently with SME’s from various industries around the world. I have helped some build new brands and others rethink, redesign, and reposition their old ones, but most importantly, I built long-lasting relationships with people!
My approach has always been a collaborative one, it is the only way to do great work. The better the client, the better the work. We are always creating things, to.ge.ther!
And for what it’s worth, we can communicate in English, Arabic, Swedish, German or some French.
What my collaborators say?
Talented – Innovative – Creative – Efficient – Listens to the clients brief + needs and gives it all…no matter what the project’s size or nature is. I wholeheartedly recommend his work as it’s always a pleasure to collaborate with Rami O.
The depth of Rami’s design work is what draws you in. Intelligent, practical, thorough, sophisticated. The work is based on listening and understanding. The product has impact and an ever-lasting quality. As the co-founder of Yoga Souk Beirut, I am eternally grateful to have had the chance to work with Rami and his team who created our studio’s brand identity, one I will never get tired of…
On the occasion of our 10-year anniversary, we needed to rework our visual identity. As always, we wanted to work with the best, we, therefore, approached Rami, a seasoned professional with brilliant creativity. At the beginning of the process, he took the time to fully understand Burgundy’s culture and aims, so that his design work ultimately was a reflection of our company’s true essence. Throughout the process, he was willing to hear our feedback and suggestions, and the result was a highly refined and elegant finished project. We wholeheartedly endorse Rami for those who want to do things differently when it comes to design. He is both analytical and creative in his process and takes the time to genuinely understand the business he is collaborating with. His professionalism, dedication, and eye for detail will no doubt impress anyone who is fortunate enough to come across him. We as Burgundy intend to pursue a long partnership with him.
I never wrote a recommendation letter for anyone but for Rami I will.
This is because he’s not only the most talented, perfectionist, genuine, ethical, honest, organized, and efficient professional I have worked with in my whole career, but he is also the nicest, the kindest, the funniest and the coolest person you can possibly hang with.
I first met Rami during portfolio night years ago and I was impressed by the quality and freshness of his work as well as his passion for branding, design, and typography. A couple of years later I was happy to get him to finally join my team at Drive Dentsu Beirut, where he did a great job in creating, refreshing and upscaling clients’ brand images for a bit more than 2 years, before deciding to fly with his own wings.
I have worked with many designers during my career, but Rami has this little extra touch. You can rest assured he will always deliver something different, authentic, and timeless for your brands. Who else could I choose for designing my own company logo?
Rami O is truly one of the best Art Directors and Designers i have had the pleasure of working with. He is very versatile, super well organized, and always professional and delivers on time, time and time again! I absolutely recommend him for everything and anything design…
Rami is a very creative designer and graphic artist. As an architect, I’ve had the chance to work with him on a public cultural project (museum). He is professional and dedicated to provide the best concept that fits the clients’ needs. I highly recommend Rami as he is passionate about what he does and would go the extra mile to make sure that everyone is satisfied with the end result!
Rami is not only one hell of a designer but was also a mentor I could always look up too. Professionally I doubt I have ever met someone with such great leadership, passion and character. A skilled master in his field with a neverending hunger for growth. To be honest I don’t only miss working with him I miss having him around.
Rami is the perfect type of designer to have on a project. He is a strategic thinker, understand business constraints, great attention to detail, no ego, and understands how to solve problems within our brand’s restrictions.
Rami’s depth of creativity & overarching professionalism consistently ensures the greatest levels of excellence. The highest recommendations for a veritable living legend.
What really stands out working with Rami is not only his swift ability to understand the requirements of the brief or project at hand but his ability to transform that understanding into workable ideas that really sing. His technical skill is matched by his affability and ease to work with, traits which inevitably lead to positive outcomes. His intuitiveness in his graphic design and creative branding comprehension means that on any project we always hit the ground running. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.
I met Rami four years ago in Beirut and he has been a very attentive listener to our work at Temporary Art Platform, a small international institution dedicated to socially engaged contemporary art. His positive energy, proactive attitude was a great push for us! In times of scarce funding, Rami offered to introduce us to his network of friends and collaborators which was very beneficial to our small organization. We have tremendously enjoyed our collaboration over the past two years. His input and pro-bono work has been extremely valuable for us to uplift our visual identity without losing touch with who we are. Rami strives to understand the people he is working with in order to best deliver what they’re looking after. He is timely, thoughtful, generous, and incisive. He takes the time to go over every minute detail, creating a strong and trusting connection with the people he works with. Most of all, his positive energy is contagious !! We cannot recommend Rami highly enough for his multidisciplinary visual, design, and copywriting skills.
