Print and publishing is my forte with specialisation in magazine design.
Having worked in some leading publishing houses in Dubai for the last eight years, I have had the opportunity to design the launch issues of more than nine magazines.
Have redesigned over 10 local magazines and also worked on brand identities, campaigns and BTL work.
Won the IAA-GCC Award for CityLife Magazine in 2002 and the IAA-GCC Award for a coffee table book, Arabian Treasures, in 2004.
Now venturing into Digital / online media with my company Digital Guru.
