I am searching for the way to tear it apart...

While also torn between my love for illustration, Arabic typography always seems to have this vague allure...

After graduating with a BS in Graphic Design from the Lebanese American University, I then went on to work for three years as an Art Director with Leo Burnett, Jeddah. Wanting to push my boundaries further, I started lecturing different and numerous Graphic Design courses, for four years now, in Dar Al-Hekma College, Jeddah.

I acted as chairwomen of one of the committees in the department. I was responsible for planning the exhibitions for the Graphic Design department. I was part of the committee that is currently revisiting the graphic design college curriculum with the help of Parsons School of Design. Part of what I was also working on was organizing screenings, and workshops for young design students, and graduates. I have also participated as a member in several juries, and Design Organizations such as Kahtt Netowork, Artmesh, and Typophile.

Local magazines and newspapers have included some of my work as well featuring a few of the exhibitions I planned. And as an active designer, I have participated in various exhibitions in Beirut, and Jeddah.

I am currently pursuing my Masters in Graphic Design in the University of the Arts, London. My personal work and thesis continues to be my deep interest regarding the subject of stereotyping of Arab Women.
