As a kid, I grew up painting and drawing on my room's plain white walls, wore my Woody (Toy Story Film) outfit and acted the whole film to my parents and family friend, played my short scale guitar as if I was Keith Richards (Rolling Stones) in my room while I only knew one chord, and acted like an Opera singer o… Read More
As a kid, I grew up painting and drawing on my room's plain white walls, wore my Woody (Toy Story Film) outfit and acted the whole film to my parents and family friend, played my short scale guitar as if I was Keith Richards (Rolling Stones) in my room while I only knew one chord, and acted like an Opera singer on my school breaks in the middle of the school’s playground.
Growing up I knew and always felt that art is what I wanted to do, but I did not understand it totally since my mind wasn’t mapped to look at education paths and how they can help me achieve that.
Regardless I started being more serious about art, and what makes a human artist. I started learning the Piano and quit because who knows why. I then became more serious about Guitar and held the instrument seriously, because it is one of the few instruments that can be held close to one's body and soul, it is a very personal instrument, then I realized, Art should be personal, I wanted to know how to make art personal, and I figured art that can’t be touched but touch, is the form to go for. I then started learning my software, Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Illustrator, Premiere Pro, After Effects and InDesign. Among other various software like Final Cut Pro 7/X, Pro Tools, and Abelton and some others through tinkering and trying to understand the whole design process through 3D MAX or Maya or whatever that I come across.
I came back to Egypt at the age of 16, and I decided and started studying Film, and I learned how light, color, and cutting affects a person’s mood and feeling, I started experimenting with film, and how to make one feel something like awe, or happiness, or maybe sadness. And with film on mind, I started learning how to work with 35mm film (Photography) and that sparked a love for Black and White Street Photography, maybe on a gloomy day, it helps loosen up to go out with a Yashica or a Leica and shoot people with good ‘ol Kodak TRI-X or Ilford HP5, even Foma works for me, It doesn’t matter, what matters is that it’s a 35mm lens on a portable camera with 400 speed film loaded. And that gave me an extra dimension to be able to understand how humans feel, and how to understand that with many layers missing, like color, personal knowledge and intimacy
although I was studying film, shooting loads of street photography and totally loved it, I have been watching branding and what brands do with their design, as worldwide superpowers and what products they offer, brands like Apple, Coca-Cola and Adidas. Therefore the only logical move after finishing Film School was learning what makes design the best thing human can achieve. Design is the ultimate form of humanity, design is what makes us human. We were built to Analyze, Troubleshoot, Research and Solve.
I have dedicated the past two years designing brands, and graphics for brands.
And now, I want to become a better designer. Read Less
