Numu

Brand identity for a premium early childhood centre

Where Each Class Is World-Class

Research, strategy and naming:

Welcome to a completely new learning experience, where we inspire curious hearts and creative minds.

Numu is designed with love to reimagine early childhood education. At the intersection of technology and tradition, it’s a nursery focused on ensuring that each day for your child is the best one ever ever :)!

During our workshops, and through comprehensive research into the audience needs, market gaps and global benchmarks, we realized that parents are really looking for a safe, joyful, stimulating environment that helps them raise well-rounded children. Our strategic direction focused on the idea of raising the future, while making the present magically memorable.

Name creation is always fun and challenging but in this case, we all gravitated quite quickly towards Numu as it comes from the Arabic word for grow, tying in beautifully with the essence of the brand.

Little Wonders Meet Days Full Of Wonder

Brand expression:

As always, a solid strategy really helps drive the visual exploration of how to bring the brand to life. We knew we wanted to create something that is whimsical, playful but sophisticated, clean and minimal. What we didn’t know was how our creative team would take that brief and just completely blow us away with their interpretation of it!

From a logo that alludes to growth to the cutest looking characters that represent the different sides of children to a palette that is both colourful but also appealing to the sensibilities of the modern millennial parents who shy away from anything garish, it’ s an identity that’s incredibly easy to fall in love with. What inspired our aesthetics? The classic pragmatic, the funky biker, the colorful happy souls.

As always, the brand identity phase was followed by the creation of various touchpoints that really immerse you in the actual brand experience and truly showcase the difference. Each application was thoughtfully crafted to appeal to parents who want to ensure their children are in a safe space that fosters a love of learning.

Clement Lombelle

Branding for the next big drop in fashion

An uncompromising “je ne sais quoi”.

In fashion, it’s all about the next big drop. The latest Adidas x Moncler collab, the Jacquemus Chiquito, the Loewe Cloudtilt- you name it! And don’t we all live for that? So when our client came with their prototype of sunnies, our jaws dropped. This IS the next big drop. We know it.

We needed to create a brand that breaks free from the constraints of daily life, one that pushes self-discovery and freedom; yet is a lasting timeless slice of luxury. Something for the seen and be seen, for the gifters, for the quiet fashion gurus… something that would enable everyone to celebrate their uniqueness, one way or another.

Handcrafted somewhere in France, Champagnole.

Welcome to the world of Clément Lombelle. A world where elegance meets luxury, where craftsmanship exudes uniqueness. Yellow’s mandate: to create a brand that makes a statement; one that embodies the artistry and edginess.

We developed the strategy, claiming a unique positioning for Clément Lombelle. One that is a reflection of our target audience’s state of mind.
What inspired our aesthetics? The classic pragmatic, the funky biker, the colorful happy souls.

The whole journey with Clément Lombelle from strategic foundation to visual identity development was one embracing imagination, individuality, sophistication and artistic expression.

Fine Arts

A Place of Discovery

Welcome to Fine Arts

We worked across different touchpoints, from the image style to packaging, all the way to social media look & feel. The intent was to showcase an unusual yet effortless form of grandeur, one that is home to some of the finest brands around the world.

A place of discovery

DTC has disrupted jewelry.

It’s no longer something you wait for your significant other to hopefully buy once a year for your birthday 🤞! Now, it’s all about self-expression and self-gifting – from me to ME! We love the new generation’s aversion to “diamonds are forever” and should cost 3x your salary in favor of street-wear styles, stacking and independent, colorful brands.

So when our client came to us with the idea of an outlet that stocked the most coveted DTC and eclectic brands from around the world, we were on board and in love!

We wanted to create a brand that flirts with the edges. A brand so boho and whimsical that it screams unexpected, sublime. A brand that is simply…it!

A destination, a mood, a moment!

The it place, the discovery, that avant-garde destination where you will always find something new to fall in [or express] love with.

A brand that celebrates art, self-expression and discovering the IT girl in you.

With the strategy in place, we developed the unapologetic brand identity. One that illustrates the destination. A destination for those who are champions of self-expression, curators and narrators of their own story.

Seeking the unexpected?

You’ve come to the right place!

We’ve partnered with some of the most successful brands across the region – from the finest jewelry to the coolest restaurants and avant-garde tech platforms!

Not sure how to stand out within your landscape? Yellow does!
We will encourage you to flirt with the edges of your tastes, break the barriers and be a little braver in your choices!

You and us? We can make magic happen!

Ovasave

Branding for an innovative fem-tech platform

Brand strategy, brand identity, tone of voice, messaging, website, social media, photography style and packaging for the first FemTech platform centered on giving women total control over their fertility journey.

TikTok over Tick Tock

OvaSave is the first fem-tech startup of its kind in the region, with a focus on fertility and women’s health. A tech platform that provides women with access to fertility and egg freezing services across a vetted network that will grow to more than 50 partner clinics in 10 countries and 20 cities.

We created a brand strategy that encourages women to fight against the tyranny of the dreaded biological clock that has ruled their lives and open their minds to options.

Freeze your eggs, not your ambitions.

We spoke to multiple women to understand the concerns, barriers and customer journey and benchmarked against some global brands that are in a similar space. The led to the creation of a brand platform centered around the idea of being there for a new generation of women, helping them pursue their amibitions and put themselves first.

We loved creating the tone of voice and messaging for this brand, which is rebellious, powerful, encouraging, unconventional and energetic.

Productive now. Reproductive later.

With the brand centered around the idea of putting women in charge of their biological clock, the logo depicts this by subtly incorporating an on / off switch withing the O.

We developed a rich visual language made up graphical devices and illustrations to support an image style that shows women living their life to the fullest, pursuing their personal and professional goals. A full set of original icons were also created for use throughout the website and app, along with packaging for the testing kits, social media look and feel and design of various collateral.

Ready to create now?

We’ve been working on some incredible tech platforms and DTC brands. If you have seen a gap in the market, a pain point that you have a great solution for and have been wondering whether to take the leap or not, we say go for it! If it’s a REALLY great idea aligned with our values, we also consider partnering for equity.

Maveroc

The art of rebellion

The art of rebellion

Meet Rita & Ibrahim, an incredibly talented couple that left their established careers to pursue their dreams of creating a bold new fine jewelry brand. Rebellion was a major theme throughout everything – from the playful, unexpectedness of the pieces created to it being a purely DTC brand to the personality of the founders. This segued into the essence of the brand being centered on the idea of “The Art of Rebellion” – a narrative that was all about celebrating self-expression, confidence, colour, creativity, boldness and femininity.

Why Maveroc

Naming is always one of the most challenging aspects of creating a brand. It’s incredibly personal, subjective and often all the great ideas you come up with are taken. We explored many themes and ideas, focusing predominantly on evocative and associative names – names that communicated the brand idea without being too descriptive (our favourite kind of names)! And thus Maveroc was born.

With a strategic foundation in place, a name we all fell in love with and the essence of rebellion at the heart of the brand, we developed the brand identity that consisted of a vibrant colour palette made up of our favourite colours – pink and yellow! The colours of passion, optimism and creativity. We selected contemporary, bold typefaces, and created a visual language that allowed the hero of our story to shine: the jewelry. This was followed by developing all the supporting touchpoints where the brand really comes to life – from creating the packaging and image style to working closely with the founders and various partners to design, direct and launch the website, social media and photoshoots.

Passionate Cheerleaders

The team: Yellow works collaboratively with our in-house team which was made up of Sarah, Mamta, Dan, Stuart along with a special shout out to our partners and collaborators.

We’ve worked on some of the most successful homegrown brands in the region like OliOli, Cafu, Luma, Goat amongst many others. If you’ve been daydreaming of starting your own business, this is the sign you’ve been waiting for!

Pan Home

Rebranding a beloved home furnishing store

Extraordinary furniture, ordinary prices

An affordable furnishing brand that started out as a single store 29 years back in Sharjah, Pan Emirates is now one of the fastest growing furniture stores in the region.

The key challenge was to pivot from a mass brand to one that’s in the affordable, accessible luxury arena and appeals to a younger, savvier audience segment, thus expanding their market share.

We conducted multiple in-store, telephone, in-person interviews as well as online (Instagram) and email surveys to understand the brand perception and market. In addition, we looked at reviews on Google, Trust Pilot and Glassdoor and went down Reddit rabbit holes.

Your home. Your style. On your budget.

This led to the development of target audience profiles, identifying primary customers, a messaging style that would resonate with them and of course, the brand platform & story.

HOME COMES FIRST

There’s one place in the world where you feel completely safe. Where you’re free to be yourself and surrounded by lovingly selected elements reflecting your tastes, memories, travels and stories. It’s where you get to invite the world a peek into who you are. It’s your sanctuary. It’s your canvas for self-expression. It’s where there’s finally balance and the noise, the deadlines, the overwhelm just fade away as you walk through the door into the arms of your family or sink into the comfort of your couch.

It’s where you come first. it’s where your family comes first. It’s because at Pan Emirates, we know that Home Comes First.

What’s in a name? A lot, actually.

A name change sends an important signal, which was much needed in this case. We wanted to retain “Pan” because of the brand equity but replace Emirates as the brand had expanded geographically far beyond the UAE. Many iterations were considered but we landed on one that tied best with the essence of Home Comes First and encompassed their offering: Pan Home.

Design your happy.

With a new direction, strategy and name in place, a beautiful, contemporary and much more minimal identity was created. Benchmarked against global DTC furniture brands, the new image style is much cleaner, allowing the products to really shine. The modern colours and typefaces deliver on the repositioning of Pan Home as a brand for a younger audience that is embarking on a new phase in their life (newly weds, a nursery for their newborn, first home).

We also worked with Pan to revamp their website, social media presence as well as advertising campaigns.

Time for your home run

Legacy and heritage brands are facing a bit of a struggle now that the purchasing power has shifted to a new generation with entirely different tastes, behaviours and even language. If you’re figuring out this new landscape and need some help, we are the right partners – our team is made up of Dubaiians who’ve been born & brought up here, to those who have been working in the region for 25 years. Our insights into the local customer behaviour and preferences is second to none, while our ability to design according to the most contemporary global standards is self-evident.

Drop us a line: hello@welcometoyellow.com or use WhatsApp and let’s revamp that brand.

Cafu

Refueling reinvented

Cafu is the region’s first fuel delivery service. Subscribers can choose between either a once off, pay-as-you-go service or a monthly subscription option. By pinpointing the location of a vehicle, and leaving the fuel cap of their car open, subscribers can now have fuel delivered to their car while at home or at work.

Working with the team at Mena Energy, we began working through the various challenges that an entirely new type of fuel product would face, how best to address those challenges and how to educate the public on the new app. Following a detailed brand audit and strategy phase, we developed a brand name for the brand – something both descriptive and intriguing, while fitting comfortably within the identified benchmark space.

We developed a series of engaging brand messages, designed to live across a wide number of different spaces – online, in app, across social and in advertising. The brand identity was then taken across all key applications, including app design and informational and educational onboarding videos. Iconography was developed to support a simple, no-fuss product, while Arabic considerations, including logo creation and typography choices were developed for the brand and detailed in a thorough brand guidelines document.

Al Majlis

Saadiyat Beach Resort’s upscale lobby lounge

Working with Jumeirah, we developed brands for the five dining experiences within their latest Abu Dhabi hotel offering – Saadiyat Beach Resort. Al Majlis, the upscale lobby lounge offers guests a place to meet, unwind and sample a variety of coffees, teas and pastries.

In developing the name and brand identity for the venue, we wanted to ensure that the brand was in line with the café’s core offering – a place where people can meet, socialize and where guests can take the time to sample a number of smaller cakes, pastries and starters. At the same time, we wanted the name to reflect the regional, Arabic heritage surrounding where much of the coffees, teas and desserts are sourced from.

Certain stylistic choices were carried through into all of the venues – metallic finishes (golds and coppers), patterning and an uncluttered, modern, sense of design found its way into each and every one of the venue’s brand identities. There though, the similarities ended and each brand became its own experience.

Menus – rich, hardcover leather-bound volumes with gold trim and copper screws, were designed to not only reflect and enhance the restaurant experience, but also to allow for quick and easy amendments in the future. Inside the menu, gold foiling was then applied over full color images to further enhance the richness and authenticity of the experience.

Working with the team at Jumeirah, we created a full suite of restaurant brand applications for Mare Mare – from menu design to coasters and napkins – finally compiling the project in a neatly documented brand guidelines document.

Tean

The art of Arabic

Tean is Saadiyat Island Resort’s upscale, Arabic dining option. Along with four other venues, it forms a suite of restaurant brands we created for Jumeirah’s five-star hotel.

Brand naming , Logo design and brand identity creation

Each of the five restaurants offers guests different dining experiences: Mare Mare specializes in seafood, Majlis serves tea, coffee and cakes, Tean offers a modern take on cuisine from around the Middle East. We wanted to ensure that each of the brands reflected that unique experience, while fitteing into, and complimented, the greater vision and proposition of the resort.

Certain stylistic choices were carried through into all of the venues – metallic finishes (golds and coppers), patterning and an uncluttered, modern, sense of design found its way into each and every one of the venue’s brand identities. There though, the similarities ended and each brand became its own experience.

Saadiyat Island is renowned for embracing art and culture. From The Louvre, to the Manarat Al Saadiyat, Salwa Zeidan and The Art Gallery at NYU, the island is rich in color and expression. We wanted the Tean brand to both embrace the richness of the food on offer, while reflecting the ethos of the Island’s greater vision.

The brand identity is dynamic. The logo is versatile; it shifts and changes throughout the many applications it appears on – from printed material – (such as coasters and menus) to signage and uniform design.

Working with the team at Jumeirah, we finalized a full suite of restaurant brand applications for Tean, finally compiling the project in a neatly documented brand guidelines document.

Chapters

Lose yourself in a good story

Chapters restaurant at Zabeel House by Jumeirah in Dubai is not your normal lobby lounge. Here, guests are invited to settle in with one of the many books within the venues library, lose themselves in a good story, or even write their own.

Challenge

Each hotel has their own lobby lounge – a venue within the hotel that is typically a waiting area and meeting point. They are where hotel guests meet before heading out for the day, and where informal meetings are held.

We were tasked by the Jumeirah Group to create a unique and evocative name and brand identity for the restaurant while also creating a theme that set it apart from other lounges.

Solution

By giving the F&B outlet a theme and identity, we were able to to turn a standard hotel lobby lounge into something more than just a simple meeting point. And that’s where the idea of Chapters stemmed from – lounges are where individuals meet, catch up and exchange stories about their own lives. They are places where business men and women get together, discuss opportunities, plan and write new chapters in their own ventures.

We wanted to take this idea and turn it into a brand that people could relate to, connect with and spend time with. Chapters – the brand name given to the venue captures everything that we wanted the place to become, a place where stories are born, shared and retold. Our task then became to bring this idea to life.

Large bookshelves lined with novels further build on the brand idea, while colors were selected to support existing uniform materials and tableware. Menus and bill folders were designed to mimic hardcover novels, note books and sketch pads, while messaging for the brand was brought through into every aspect of the brand experience.

Chapters is a simple brand that, while delivering on its own unique brand experience, lives comfortably within Jumeirah’s unique new offering of Zabeel House at Al Seef.

Marina Arcade

It’s time to update your status

A high-end development offering luxury apartments in Dubai Marina,  Marina Arcade offers the very best in Marina living. Combining high-end services, luxury finishings, state-of-the-art facilities and easy access to Dubai’s primary road networks, Marina Arcade raises the bar on Marina living.

Challenge

Developed and operated by Madain Properties, Marina Arcade needed to communicate its offering to a number of different markets: Local – families living and working in Dubai, regional (GCC) and a number of international markets. This made targeted communication channels of utmost importance.

Advertising and messaging

First and foremost we developed a compelling creative idea with visuals and messaging solutions that would be used across print and digital applications. Identifying a number of key points – those attributes that differentiate the offering from its competition (including concierge and service) determined the overall tonality for the brand, and the overarching messaging that the campaign was going to employ.

We then began to look at how the creative ideas could be applied to print, digital and social media.

Social media marketing and digital advertising

We decided to use social media not just as a tool to promote the development and the individual units within it, but to transform it into something useful – a tool that residents could use to find out about upcoming events and promotions within the area, and a digital platform that educates and informs international audiences about the benefits of buying and investing within the Marina.

Social media was then complemented with targeted, digital advertising – both on social channels (such as Facebook and Instagram, as well as external news and property sites) and backed up by a simple, easy to navigate website, including downloadable brochure, floor plans and video walk through.

As with everything we do, in taking the Marina Arcade brand to market, it was important that everything from the visual style to the words we used across each and every channel – be it outdoor advertising, print, or social media – remained true and consistent to the overall brand experience.
