I am a Lebanese designer and illustrator specializing in research-led design with a focus on sociology, politics and investigative field work.
My process is centered on fusing journalistic reporting with visual design skills to communicate key insights with a toolkit that draws from Arabic writing, bilingual design, data visualization, illustration and a variety of research techniques.
After holding the Creative Director position at Mojo Ink - Beirut and Abu Dhabi - for 2 years, I decided to pursue a Masters in Graphic Design at AKV|St.Joost, The Netherlands. Moreover, I collaborated with various Design studios and held a teaching assistant position at the American University of Science and Technology (AUST) - Beirut, Lebanon.
My early commercial endeavors in creating and developing works for brands across Lebanon and the UAE, was formative in driving me towards an academic and research-based creative practice.
I am currently based in the Netherlands and have sucessfully published my masters thesis entitled 'Identity representation: self-Orientalism and hyper-nationalism in Arab* design', presenting a theoretical and visual outcome to support my current career as a designer and future development as an academic and researcher.
