Who We Are

Just us & Otto, Qatar

In Qatar, we’re part of the fastest growing economy in the Middle East. The country has a clear national vision and an impressive events calendar that includes the 2022 Football World Cup and around 40 international sports competitions. Honesty and credibility are our watchwords. Only relationships built on solid foundations can excel. We can understand your brand and win you fans with a clear and concise image.

Just us & Otto, UAE

Situated in Dubai, we are ideally located within a global hub that plays home to the Middle Eastern headquarters of some of the worlds most well-known organisations. Winning the bid to host the anticipated Expo 2020, Dubai also hosts GITEX, Art Dubai and the Emirates Airlines Dubai Rugby Sevens. Just a few of the big events taking place annually in the ‘City of Gold’. We help businesses attract and engage with their customers visually, verbally and emotionally. We aim to create experiences that trigger emotions and in turn, create fans.

Your creative partner for emotional experiences

Just us & Otto unleashes creativity and connects people to brands at every step. Breaking away from our affiliated company to form our own identity meant making some tough decisions like, what do we stand for? In a digital age, the spread of information is vast, and overwhelming. We have an all-inclusive access, but how do we stand out?

Well, we’re for everyone; we don’t have time to pretend. For us, authenticity is key. Time-pressured consumers and businesses need clear, concise and relevant information. We dream big, and develop pioneering ideas. We are driven by goals, and want to see our clients grow. To be noticed, you have to be different. You’ll be working with a multi-disciplinary team, each one of us explorers. We will convert our ideas into ingenious expressions exclusively for your brand.

Transforming consumers into Fans

We brew together every aspect of creative, physical and digital resources into engaging brand experiences. By developing interactive scenarios, our audiences are drawn into the brand’s magic, complete with its values and personality. Ultimately, clients feel as though they have engaged with a truly visionary and exciting company. We will provide solid, creative and innovative solutions to captivate and create positive changes, while realizing brand dreams.
