I'm a freelance brand developer, graphic designer, artist, writer, videographer, and animator
I’ve been a freelance graphic designer since 2012. In all my years I enjoyed working on many projects. I love the world of design. I’m infatuated with art and the history of art but mostly I am captivated by the contemplative and enigmatic world of philosophy.
My aim is to combine my education in arts and history with my long experience in graphics and advertising to produce different outcomes in relation to marketing strategy and the business plan.
My greatest inspiration is the “creative thinker”. Especially the way the mind binds its right and the left side to create a beautiful blend of abstract thoughts. To that I try profoundly to create my art based on my understanding of the very complex and exhilarating human experience.

Education for Leadership in Crisis (ELC) Scholarship Program
Project Manager and Art Director | Beirut Lebanon | 2019
I was responsible for producing the ELC TV campaign. I started by assessing the past campaigns to specify the campaign goals. I conducted field notes by interviewing the students that had already won the scholarship program to define the target and segment the audiences. I designed and directed a specific strategy that is carried out across different mediums to achieve desired results. I wrote the script and designed the storyboard. I executed the overall visual appearance and how it communicates visually, stimulates moods, contrasts features, and psychologically appeals to a target audience. I made decisions about visual elements, what artistic styles to use, and when to use motion and angels. The challenge was to solidify the vision of the collective imagination while resolving conflicting agendas. This project involved collaboration with Women for Afghan Women, American Embassy in Afghanistan, and American University of Beirut.
