“The artist is not a special kind of person; rather each person is a special kind of artist.” – Amanda Coomaraswany

Driven by the passion to create and express, graphic design was an obvious route for me to pursue. Having acquired four years of academic work in art school, I worked at B&A VCC, where I was given a first real experience how design works in the corporate world. After almost 2 years in B&A VCC, I took on the role of an in-house Senior Graphic Designer in Coastline at King Abdullah University of Science & Technology, adopting the passion for photography.

After a half a year in Coastline, I rose to the challenge of being an independent designer, and every day has become an opportunity to learn and discover something new from project pitches to artwork finalisation. I was able to hone my abilities in client servicing, problem-solving and broaden my skills in different areas of design, which led to the making of Iris Events.

Confucius said, “Study the past if you would define the future”. Living by his words has inspired me to participate at the University of Oxford’s Online Program in Art History.

And if I am not designing or studying, I am writing.
