Komal Bedi Sohal


With over 25 years of experience working with global brands such as Ford, Cadillac, HSBC, PepsiCo, and P&G, among others, Omal has held the position of Chief Creative Officer in Saatchi & Saatchi Dubai, Y&R Singapore, and Y&R India.


Her leadership has spanned across various regions, including India, South East Asia, and the Middle East, and she has worked with notable agencies such as Y&R, Grey, Lowe, Rediffusion, and Saatchi & Saatchi. Despite her extensive portfolio, Leica holds a special place in her heart as her favorite brand.


Her impressive work has earned her multiple awards, including golds at Cannes Lions, One Show, ANDYs, ADC, Clio, LIA, Epica, D&AD, Spikes Asia, Effie, WARC, Dubai Lynx, and Goa Fest. In fact, her campaign for Harvey Nichols was ranked the second-best press campaign in the world, and she was recognized as the second-best Art Director by the Big Won.

Omal's expertise and achievements have led her to serve on the jury for several notable awards, including D&AD, Cannes Lions, Art Director’s Club, Clio, Adfest, and New York Festivals. Despite all her accomplishments, she remains humble and enjoys being judged by her big, burly, always-sleepy cat, Grey Joy.


Over a decade ago, Omal brought art direction and craft to the forefront in the Middle East and became the region's first female ECD. In 2019, she collaborated with her sister to publish "Dream Keeper," a collection of poetry and photography that showcased her Leica.
