I am a creative, reliable and hard working designer with an excellent academic and professional background in design. I am a highly-motivated person and I have a passion to learn and excel. I possess a combination of talent, distinct personality, originality and a healthy competitive attitude.I am very familiar with design research, design methodologies and problem solving techniques, as well as outstanding skills of sketching, technical drawing and 3D modeling.
In 2011, I earned a First Class with honours BFA from Décor Department (Interior Architecture and Scenography Design department),Faculty of Fine Arts, Helwan University, Egypt. I was in general among the top three students in my classes. Throughout the whole five years of study, I ranked the “third” of the top students and my grade was very good with honors and excellent for the graduation project. In August 2010, I attended a course of Product Design (IDSS) at Faculty of Engineering, Bologna University, Italy. It was a great experience in the field of industrial design, as I got the opportunity to visit reputable Italian manufacturers and design studios (for example: Ducati motorcycles & Toro Rosso Formula1 factories). This was in addition to completing a workshop for product design along with Japanese students of Osaka University. In January 2013, I was selected by The German Arab Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GACIC) to join a study trip to Germany as to visit design firms, factories ( for example; Nolte, Rohr & Gepade) and IMM Cologne Fair.
In June 2010,I was a product design intern at the Innovation lab of the leader office furniture company in the Middle East MOBICA doing design researches on office furniture as well as designing products and working on the product development strategy of the company. In August 2011 right after graduation, I was appointed as a Product designer/ Design Researcher in one of the leading design firms in Egypt; Rhimal Design that works mainly to promote design in Egypt through managing design workshops, exhibitions and competitions and also publishing the well-known award winner magazine; Magaz Design. My job is about designing products and doing researches in industrial design.I have been involved in many projects that require planning, design and development of products.
Through my studies & professional experience, I became fascinated with issues of product design and product development researches. Being a designer, I consider changing or making life better through Art & Design my main target which I can achieve by product designing. I would like to help Egypt be an active contributor in the international market of product design and industry in general. That is why it is important to reconsider developing the field of product design in Egypt. As a designer, I am concerned mainly with the methods by which I can interact or deal with the industrial challenges in Egypt as part of the general economic and social problems facing the country nowadays and to help the country pass through this difficult period, we need to clearly point out the problems and the best ways to solve them.
