My creativity

Creativity has always provided me with an enjoyable sense of pleasure and accomplishment. This sense has compelled me to generate new ideas, which seem to produce positive responses from professional designers. In this respect, Islamic heritage has been a remarkable source of my inspiration, in addition to other European and American creative works.

I am a Muslim graphic and typographic designer, living in Gaza — Palestine. I live in a terrible situation, bad economy and the roads are always closed. I can’t travel outside Gaza, so my only way to get experience is through the Internet, through which I can contact people by chatting and emails.

I tried to participate in many world exhibitions as I believed that I could learn a lot from the experience of other people.

According to my artwork, they all compound between Digital Art, fonts and some calligraphy words to produce a nice show.

Besides that I am a type designer, I designed many Arabic fonts (You can visit my website:, where I have included some of my fonts specimen.
