The Qatar University Library project demonstrates how our space designers bring the strategic vision to life through interior creativity and intelligent use of space, selection of materials, fabric and industrial design nuances that ultimately deliver a unique, relevant and consistent tone of voice.

Our team created a concept and produced a space design solution where a unique new interior pays homage to the history and heritage of the institution.
ADabisc Agency’s designers were presented with the challenge of branding the College of Medicine at Qatar University and designing its interiors. The requirement was to create an exclusive space for students to interact and engage in discussions with a specific goal of triggering a conversation. Our space designers approached the project by celebrating the study of medicine at Qatar University. They opted to go to the very heart of the human body and focus on its neurons.
Imagine a network of neurons as the foundation of the interior décor – systematically beautiful, yet randomly simplistic. A network with a life of its own – creating engaging points for connections between students and faculty staff. The spaces created displayed dendrites which branch out into neurons of different sizes – some offering interesting tidbits about ancient Arab medics – while others offered important reminder notes on events, public holidays and other relevant messages to students.

Consume wisely.” The campaign embraced an integrated mix of media including print, outdoor, social media, online advertising and radio moving seamlessly from a successful launch to tactical messaging.
