Blog Anubis’ Louai Alasfahani Tells It How It Is

By: Copyranter.
Monday, 28 March 2011
I catch up with Louai Alasfahani at the Dubai Lynx 2011 and ask him about his thoughts of this year’s work as well as the future of the region’s creative.
Like him or hate him, you gotta respect this man for just telling it how it is. If you don’t know who Louai is, all you have to do is google his name or just check out his blog at: http://bloganubis.com/ 

Louai’s blog broke the story on FP7’s Fadi Yaish and the scam work which tainted our region a couple of years back. The scandal ultimately created a massive shake up at FP7 and eventually forced Dubai Lynx to revoke FP7’s ‘Agency of the Year’ accolade as well as various awards and ban them from entering any work into the Lynx.

To put it bluntly, bloganubis will name and shame you if your cheating in the region. Check out Louai’s blog and his thoughts here (sorry for butchering your name Louai).

Paragon Marketing Communications work published in 17th International Book titled Recycling & Redesigning Logos

Paragon Marketing Communications one of Kuwait’s leading advertising agency has its work featured in Rockport Publications’ latest release titled ‘Recycling & Redesigning Logos’, making it the 17th international publication on advertising and graphic design featuring work by Paragon Marketing Communications’.

Recycling & Redesigning Logos explores the paradoxes involved in determining when and how much change is necessary in order to arrive at a more captivating and enduring visual logo personality. The book talks about redesigning of logos and about the questions one faces when redesigning, the most important being “Where do you start from?” The book shows case studies from around the world showcasing the brand stories of many corporations such as Coca Cola, Kodak, Burger King etc.

The book is authored by Michael Hodgson, principal and creative director of Ph.D, A Design Office – a firm whose design thinking approach is based on the idea of visual personalities: capturing the essence and soul of the client, then communicating those qualities throughout all applications from building signage and websites to identities and marketing collateral. When he’s not in the office, Michael can usually be found riding his bike in the Santa Monica Mountains.

Paragon Marketing Communications has been featured in 17 international books on advertising and graphic design some of which are: The Best of Business Card Design by Sibley/Peteet Design/Austin, Letterhead & Logo Design 9 by The San Francisco Design Office Mine, Letterhead & Logo Design 11 by Design Army, Logo Lounge 4 by Bill Gardner, Identity Crisis by Jeff Fisher, The Big Book of Self promotion by Peleg Top and Ilise Benun, Logo Lounge Master Library 3000 Initial & Crest Logos and Logo Lounge Master Library 3000 Initial & Mythology Logos by Catharine Fishel and Bill Gardner.

On this feat Louai Alasfahani the Managing Director and Chief Creative Officer, Paragon Marketing Communications said “Paragon Marketing Communications has started the new year with yet another achievement and we can safely say that the rest of the year has many more to offer”. Gaya Kruchlik, the Deputy General Manager added “We strive to create work that not just helps the clients but also sets trends and helps push the industry in Kuwait towards international standards”

Blog Anubis supports 2011 Dubai Lynx

Blog Anubis is a proud supporter of the Dubai Lynx advertising creativity festival. The Dubai Lynx (in my opinion) is currently the most credible festival awarding creativity in the Middle East as evident by the actions taken two years ago when they withdrew the title of Agency of the Year and several trophies from an agency which did not adhere to the competition rules and regulations. They also updated their rules and regulations (see Great move Dubai Lynx ).

Many media vehicles including Arab Times, Seyassah and RLP have confirmed their support for the Dubai Lynx from Kuwait with many more confirming on a daily basis.
