DUBAI, UAE // Komal is the Chief Creative Officer at Saatchi & Saatchi Dubai.
She is a creative leader with more than 25 years of experience at Y&R, Grey, Lowe and Saatchi & Saatchi across India, South East Asia and the Middle East on global brands like Ford, Cadillac, Harvey Nichols, Colgate, Virgin Atlantic and Land Rover, to name a few. — Yet, Leica is her favourite brand ever.
Her work has received multiple metal at Cannes Lions, One Show, ANDYs, ADC, Clio, LIA, Epica, D&AD, Spikes Asia, Effie, WARC, Dubai Lynx and Goa Fest. Her campaign for Harvey Nichols was ranked the number two press campaign in the world. And the Big Won ranked her number two on the list of Top Art Directors. — Yet, Leica is her favourite brand ever.
She has served as a jury member at Cannes Lions, Art Director’s Club, Clio, Adfest and New York Festivals. — Yet, she loves being judged by Grey Joy, her big, burly, always-sleepy cat.
Over a decade ago, she brought the Middle East into the spotlight through art direction and craft, and became the first female ECD in the region. Over a month ago, her Leica collaborated with her sister’s pen, and they published their debut book “Dream Keeper” an ensemble of poetry and photography. She believes in a world where women can and will. — At least, the case study says so.
