I conceived a magazine that would be able to challenge global preconceptions and misconceptions on heavy issues,ranging from religious issues like the Headscarf or political issues like the return of Soviet Russia, all aimed at an 18-25 year old demographic.

Images were integral to making this magazine that bit more digestible for my target demographic as they would breakup the columns of information, as well as a spacious layout and light weight typeface.
This article explores how some girls were forced to wear the headscarf for veil and the resulting effect it has had on their relationship with their family and their faith.
Each article will open with a calligraphic title, in this case, I created four Arabic fonts which can be used in various contexts and formats.
