This project is in memorial of one of the most loved and iconic Egyptian singer Oum Kalthoum. She mesmerized Arab audiences with her classic, poetic and expressive music and is up till today widely appreciated among all generations.
The project was done for production design course at the American University in Cairo. This was our first silkscreen and as screen printing is known as the best option for high level of vibrancy in designs we chose vibrant colors in a pop-art inspired design. The designed pictograph of Oum Kalthoums is an edited version taken from the series of Celebrity Minimal Posters design by Razan graphics, The type is influenced by old arabic calligraphy used at the time.
