We are Punch Advertising Design. A branding, creative & design agency based in Dubai. Since 2006, we’ve helped our clients design living, breathing brands powered by interactive ideas, retail activations, campaign strategies, creative communication and solutions. In the bargain, their brands have risen to new heights.

Creativity is famously unpredictable. We may have our whole team working on a logo idea for a whole week. But after several research attempts, profound brainstorms, and ‘inspirational’ sessions, the idea will be hiding somewhere in an overheard conversation. And you’ll wonder, “Why didn’t I think of that before?”

They define us, they drive us. To mark our 9th anniversary we revisit the 9 core values that Punch has always and will forever abide by. Each of these stem from basic principles that we believe in not only as professionals but also as human beings. And on close attention, you will see that they are present in every thing we do.

We are proud to announce that Punch is now a part of Johnson & Johnson’s global New Way of Marketing movement. This company-wide paradigm shift was initiated in November 2014, by their CMO, Alison Lewis. It aims to to move to a One-Idea model for its global mega brands.

Honest to the term “classic”, these cars were more than just old-timers. From 1917 Saxon Horseless Carriage to a space-age, electric 'green’ car from the second half of the 20th century, each car represented a trendsetting point in automobile history.

The Emirates Classic Car Festival is back. Enthusiasts goggling at cult icons like the Mercedes Benz Patent Wagon, the 1960 Rolls Royce Limousine and even the DMC-12 DeLorean from ‘Back to the Future’ have given the festival a fine reputation in the past. No doubt, this year (19th to 22nd March) will see an even larger number of admirers orbiting the MBR Boulevard at Downtown Dubai.

Sit back, zoom out and get a stratospheric look at our society. In today’s world, there seems to be little untouched by branding. Even basic services and industries, like academia and healthcare prominently flaunt their logos and slogans.

Congratulations Silvie Cidricova, the lucky superhero who won the Apple® 11” Macbook Air. We received an overwhelming number of superheroes dressed-up in their avatar. Some looked intimidating, some just plain cute. But together, every participant showed how inspiring brand-builders can be. And in honour of their enthusiasm, we have sent each participant a personalized Moleskine® Diary.

Every year on our anniversary, we try to conjure up an interesting escapade. Something light-hearted to remind everyone (clients and ourselves) why they love what they do. This year, we turned 8. An age of wonder, discovery and growth. And like every 8-year old we too have heroes to look up to. Not just fictional ones with speech bubbles and terrible fashion sense. But our very own superheroes -our clients. They perform superhuman tasks for their brands. Every day.
