I am a multi-disciplinary designer, hailing from the centre of old Damascus. I’ve been designing commercially for more than 11 years and have worked for small design agencies, from 2000 to present. Since then I’ve played a key role in the launch of many brands in Dubai and Syria such as: Dubai Isalmic Bank, Dubai Bank, Dubai Commercial Bank, Bank Sohar, Meraas Holding(Hubzero, Playtwon, The Green Planet, Dome Box), Emaar, Landmark Group: (homeCentre, Centerpiont, Splash, Shoe Mart, ICONIC, max, Q home decoré, Babyshop, E-max), Rasassi, Etisalat Dalil, TRA, DOT, DTS, Welldone, Emirates Post, Dewa, ABU DHABI TV, SilkRout, Agthia:(Al Ain Water, Caprisun, Grandmills, Yoplait), Tamweel, Al Shamsi Group(Zara, Vincci, Okaidi Obaibi), Abu Dhabi Airports, Abu Dhabi Duty Free, Unilever(lux, Lipton, Veet, bond, Closeup, Vaseline, Fear & lovely) Aujan Group(barbican, Vimto, Rani) IFCO( Noor oil, Rahma Oilive oil), ALADIB note book, Abu Arab Haider Group, Cham City Center, Ansco and more which have gone on to be a huge commerical success. In addition I freelance as DoArt; this is where I get my fair share of recognition for my work.
I’m your typical creative; I’ll buy something because the box is nicely designed, I’ll try and name typefaces walking through the shopping mall, I’ll be skeptical of a restaurant with poor menu design. I’ll over-analyse the message behind everything I see, which makes me truely think about everything I see… and how I could do it better.
Let’s work together.

I’ve been in love with Dubai ever since I fell in love with Design. I fell in love with the place, especially DMC. It manages somehow to be chaotic yet organised, loud but calm. That’s the kind of place I want
to be, and that’s the kind of place which can inspire to reach new creative heights.
Dubai it is mixed between the modern and classic, mixed between the Sea and desert. A lot of civilizations are existing here, Dubai really it is a such wonderful place.
When I’m not designing (which is rare, to be honest) I spend my time in drawing or doing calligraphy at home and should probably be good at it by now. Besides that I take an interest in all the usual
things; movies, art, reading. I’ve recently become curious about photography, and whilst I have no idea what I’m doing - it’s still great fun
Around the Internet
I’m active in lots of places around the internet, and always try to get involved in the community. If you’re into the whole stalking thing you can see what I’ve been up to here:
