Hussein Alazaat is a multi-disciplinary designer and typography enthusiast from Jordan. He has worked for various clients in diverse industries from the UK, Germany, Turkey, the USA and the MENA region. Hussein believes in the power of Arabic calligraphy in modern brands and products; he also emphasises contemporary treatment in his typographic works.

Hussein received his first inspiration from children's books and magazines, and was influenced by the late Egyptian designer and artist Mohieddien El-Labbad, and in his design studio in Amman, he is collecting a vital archive of Arab publications from the past two centuries which will be turned into an online library for public soon. 

In 2012, he cofounded 'Wajha', a social/cultural/design initiative to help small businesses and shop owners who are in need of free-of-charge branding works for their shops.

Hussein has given several workshops in calligraphy and design, and lectured for schools and universities in Jordan and abroad. In 2014, he started providing super visioning services for design students’ projects in the fields of Arabic type design and Arabic visual culture for Kolding School of Design in Denmark. 

He graduated from Amman School for Graphic Arts and earned a Graphic Design Diploma from London Art College via distance learning. Read Less
