Bio

Graphic Design is my passion. It is a visual way of communicating with the world around you by putting your expertise and your experience to turn your concept to a business solution for a better world. I keep insisting on growing my knowledge and enhance my skills in this domain. I have interest in digital media that's why I enrolled for a PhD program. My curiosity to learn more about UI/UX design pushed me to enroll for courses. I love Photography. I love glass art as stained glass, coloring, fusing,..... and not to forget I like to do crafts and show my creativity through embroidery, raisin art.

Project ideas

Project ideas are meant to help inspire student thinking about their own project. Students are in the driver seat of their research and are free to use any or none of the ideas shared by their mentors.

Arabic

Teaching experience

I spent 3 years teaching graphic design at a Technical Institute introducing fundamental elements of design, advertising, and creating an art piece using different medias from softwares to printing. I always found it fascinating to help others to think outside of the box and expand their creativity to become the best designers. I enjoy my work as a teacher and a freelancer helping university students to finish their projects. I incorporate fun into my lessons when possible. And while my easy-going style is suitable for all kind of design subjects, I am also able to adapt my style to the needs of the student.
