Maece Seirafi was born in San Francisco, California she grew up in Damascus, Syria where most of her love of letterforms, art, poetry and calligraphy was cultivated. In 2005 she graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles with a BFA in Communication Arts. Arabic calligraphy and Latin letterforms were a strong central theme throughout her work at Otis. After an extensive Type Design class with the renown type designer Leah Hoffmitz, bilingual identities in typography furthered her interest to pursue her MFA at the Graphic Design program at the California Institute of the Arts in 2007. She studied under the guidance of several talented design visionaries such as Louise Sandhaus, Lorraine Wild, Ed Fella, Michael Worthington, and Jefferey Keedy. Having completed her MFA in Graphic Design in 2010, Maece continues to explore the nuances of arabic and latin typography and how bilingual identities could be further developed typographically. She is an independent graphic designer heavily involved in several local Arab American projects as well as multicultural organizations. She currently resides in Los Angeles. Her work was recognized by, INDEX DESIGN:Designing Water’s Future 2010 book CalArts Magazine Summer 2010 issue Communication Arts July/Aug 2009 issue INDEX DESIGN: AIGA/Aspen Design Challenge 2009 Finalist Certificate of Outstanding Achievement from Department of Water and Power 2009 First Place Logo Competition 2007for Reach Program Otis Best of Show Exhibition 2005, Communication Arts Read Less
