about

Osama Khalil is a community builder and branding designer. He believes in the power of branding, the power of communities, and their role in directing customer’s behavior. They add an emotional touch and a relationship between products and customers. He explores color, expression & visual languages, and works with brands, to create strong visual work

Osama has been working in the Jordanian ecosystem for four years now by building communities for designers in Jordan. Osama organized more than 20 events, competitions, and hackathons for more than 4000 participants. Four years ago, Osama joined the Corporate Entrepreneurship Responsibility department at Zain Jordan and worked on developing this community and connecting more innovative and creative young people in a loop of beginners, professionals, and experts in diverse fields and industries. During his time at ZINC, Osama managed and developed high-impact programs, such as Zain Al Mubadara and Women Entrepreneurs Development Program, and created hackathons and established new opportunities for startups.

Fun fact: Because he's minimalist, Osama is wearing the same shirt with different colors every day.
