Right from when the Middle East Film & Comic Con was set to be announced by the dynamic duo from Extracake PRA in 2010, Xpanse had an early insight into this upcoming event as an official design partner in charge of producing the website and handling the social media management for MEFCC.
The event which had not yet found a date, required an eye-catching, dynamic and intuitive site allowing the admins to manage featured activities and guests listed on the site. Some of the designs we created for the website became a running theme in the event.
During 2011 we promoted MEFCC through a social media awareness campaign, managing their Facebook page and Twitter account. We also created a teaser promo animation for the 2011 event which was eventually postponed.
For all good things to happen, the time must be right – in this case it was 2012 when the event was officially announced and we could finally launch the website we had completed over a year ago. Xpanse has had a prominent place in the con where we promoted our comics and artwork and gained quite a few fans in the process. Our chief comics-man Ashraf Ghori was also a featured guest in 2012 & 2013, rubbing shoulders with the likes of Alvin Lee, Jason Momoa & James O’Barr.
The rest, as they say, was history. For as long as we have such amazing events happening in Dubai, may we Live long & Comic Con!
