In 2009 Khatch Mikaelian launched Kalian Branding, a boutique design consultancy focused on creating immaculate brand experiences. Kalian Branding has since been committed to delivering commercially effective design solutions to our clients, whether they are global giants looking for reinvention or local start-ups looking to challenge the category. 

Our team’s international background and rich experience deliver innovative results that are culturally relevant and creatively stimulating. We strive for nothing short of breakthrough ideas that define brand meaning, drive consumer emotion and build brand equity. Through insight, powerful designs and experienced leadership we tell our clients’ stories and create beautiful, confident brands.

After many years of client side and agency side experience, strategic thinking and core creative is done in-house by our team that’s been together for many years. Everything is integrated as it’s managed by the authors of the core thinking and brand development. We pride ourselves for being experts that identify what your brand needs after it is created. Through our Beyond Branding team of marketing professionals, our clients can essentially tap into what is the best possible next step for the brand to create a sense of awareness and drive conversion through effective and relevant brand experiences and tools. 

We believe in the importance of not only great work, but to be great to work with. Through the power of collaboration, we have developed strong and successful brands throughout the UAE, Qatar, Egypt and Saudi Arabia ranging from property developers, NGOs, architectural firms, luxury hotels, financial institutions and several F&B products.
