GET TO KNOW OUR TEAM

Our team was built along different time stages. The diversity of talents and skills helped in the formation of a highly experienced and professional team. The mixture of cultural backgrounds and identities allowed the team members to add to each other, considering Cairopolitan a wide-sighted school in different fields.

Shennawy worked side by side with Hefnawy as a designer and art director for Cairopolitan's first collection of products. He worked on the visual identity of the products' labels, posters and the brochure. Shennawy studied applied arts with a major in advertising and worked with Hefnawy since 2000 in the advertising field then quit it to freelance. He works and lives between Cairo & Brussels since 2015.

" I liked the phase of choosing the name of each product! The idea was to combine two names together in order to get the product's name. I believe that the name itself is as important as the product ."

NELLY EL SHARKAWY

Manager & Creative Director

Despite her young age and the fact that she joined Cairopolitan while she was still an architectural design student, she was the only person who succeeded in understanding the nature of the place and its needs. Her wide background in photography, architecture and art added a lot to the project which made her worthy of her job title. Her unique combination fit the project which made her understand cairopolitan easily and very quickly without any effort. Her presence made a big difference in the project and we couldn't have made it here without her help.

ABDULLAH MUHAMMAD 

Illustrator & Designer

Graduated from Fine Arts school, though an important phase that was of a great addition, Hefnawy however, doesn't consider himself a painter but believes it is a useful tool when it comes to documenting his observations. He then moved to the advertising field that despite its loudness and pressure, he succeeded in using his creativity and was given a space to mix and combine different things together. His relationship with Cairo was always a love/hate relationship that's why he decided to create this space , to help him see Cairo in his own way. He considers Cairopolitan a museum where several elements of Cairo are presented in an uncanny way.
