Showcase & Discover Creative Work

Christina Fayad

Graphic Design, Visual Communication

Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Fresh graduate from the 4-year Industrial Design program @ Universite de Montreal. Passionate about creativity in all forms, I lived in Russia for some years before moving to Lebanon, and ultimately to Canada for my bachelor studies. I had the opportunity to discover and experience a diversity of cultures. I’m looking for occasions to cultivate this diversity trough product and graphic conception.
