About

Cairo-based designer, influenced by Rothko, VOMIR and Bill Viola. Fascinated by the inner language of brand identities, I listen. Where I can, I adopt a minimalist approach. Great design, for me, is closer to sculpture than painting. I'm always trying to take something away: to reduce things down to their essence.
