I first met Omar in 2004 when he completed his university degree - He applied for a product design role at Bloch International. Omar's unique and creative ability made him stand out from the rest of the designers. We continue to work closely till now and he played a key role in designing many of our successful products on an international scale.
It's always a pleasure to work with an all-round designer like Omar who understands the footwear industry well. His approach to design and manufacturing is outstanding and each project we worked on were well managed, well structured and the final results have always been executed with high standard and quality. I look forward to working with Omar on many more international footwear projects in the future.
I commissioned Omar Alrawi to design a range of men's high-end footwear collection since 2015 under a new label Code Black. Omar raised the quality of our footwear collection with new design methods using new quality materials, new patterns, custom last development, established new manufacturers partners and maintained ongoing brand consistancy across all products. I have had the pleasure of travelling with Omar and continue to work closely with him on our seasonal men's and women's collections.
He has succcessfully designed and developed our seasonal collections from 2015 to 2017
‘We commissioned Omar to design our entire insole and medical footwear products for our clinics and he has proven to be the best designer we have ever worked with! He guided our team throughout the design process and managed the entire project during sampling and production. Working with a designer that is highly knowledgeable in material composition and material science that helped achieve our insole range. Omar successfully raised our quality at the target cost we needed to maximize our wholesale profit margins.
‘I have worked alongside Omar while he was commissioned to design our ip op products, he took complete ownership of the project, delivered brilliant products that translated our research perfectly. We sent him to Hong Kong where he managed mass production and setup quality procedures for large factories, he also went a step further and ensured that our intellectual property is protected with very precise patents’
