Hanan Kandili joins forces with Gabrielle Omar to launch Strut, a brand consultancy for property developers.
Educated in architecture and specialists in public relations, business development and marketing, the dynamic pair are drawing on their successes to help developers and built environment experts realise the potential of their projects.
Based in West London, Strut specialise in the branding, design and production of communications material for new and existing projects and businesses.
Following on from her achievements on the most recent series of BBC1’s The Apprentice, Gabrielle is campaigning alongside the Royal Institute of British Architects to help change the face of architecture with the aim of giving the profession a ‘brand overhaul’. She believes that architects and developers need to communicate the extent of their versatility in the current economic climate.
‘Launching Strut couldn’t have come at a better time’ says Gabrielle who reached week 10 of the series. ‘Lord Sugar has high expectations. It was great to be recognised by him for really getting to grips with the importance of brand image on the tasks’.
Gabrielle has found a successful business partner in Hanan Kandili, founder and director of The Double Unit. Focusing on building the reputation of many successful architectural practices, Hanan has worked with world renowned CZWG Architects alongside Paul Smith and award-winning Walters & Cohen to name a few. With 17 years experience in the industry, Hanan brings her extensive knowledge of business development, marketing planning, PR and creative design into her new business venture with Gabrielle.
The ambitious team is not stopping short of stamping the Strut brand on developments all across the UK and abroad.
