“I have worked with mecs for years, since Saxo Bank first established at Dubai International Financial Centre.

This included designing Arabic versions of ads for the Middle East market, which mecs fulfilled very capably.”

Frequently asked questions

Good question! For starters, the annual cost of a full-time senior-level designer can now exceed £45,000, or $100,000 in the US, plus benefits (if you can find one available). And that’s not accounting for Arabic RTL (right-to-left) experience.

Aside from that, you may not always have enough work to keep them busy at all times, so you’re stuck paying for time you aren’t able to utilise.

Then you would also need to source professional Arabic translators and copywriters (human, not AI).

Adding in the cultural awareness and first-hand experience mecs has gained over 25 years in the Gulf, to replicate a comparable in-house team would be very difficult.

With our monthly plan, you can pause and resume your subscription as often as you need, so that you’re only paying us when you have work available.

Once subscribed, you’re able to add as many design requests to your queue as you’d like, and they will be delivered one by one.

On average, most requests are completed in just two days or less. However, more complex requests can take longer.

Every project is managed by Marisa Manns. This means you’ll work directly with our co-founder. However, specialist services such as animations, custom illustrations, location photography, or web development are sometimes provided by partners.

We understand you may not have enough design work to fill up entire month. Perhaps you only have one or two design requests at the moment. That’s where pausing your subscription comes in handy.

Billing cycles are based on 31 day period. Let’s say you sign up and use the service for 21 days, and then decide to pause your subscription. This means that the billing cycle will be paused and you’ll have 10 days of service remaining to be used anytime in the future.

Adobe apps such as InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop.

Membership offers a ton of flexibility in how you request designs using Trello. Some common ways clients request designs is directly via Trello, sharing Google docs or wireframes, or even recording a brief Loom video (for those who prefer not to write their briefs out). Basically, if it can be linked to or shared in Trello, it’s fair game.

No worries! We’ll continue to revise the design until you’re 100% satisfied.

That’s fine. You can pause your subscription when finished and return when you have additional design needs. There’s no need to let the remainder of your subscription go to waste.

Due to the high quality nature of the work, there will be no refunds issued.

Using English-only marketing collateral from abroad can alienate Gulf buyers
