My name is Riham, as you may have figured out already. I am a conceptual visual communicator aka graphic designer. At the age of 10, I started doodling my name in different styles and shapes creating different visual compositions, little I knew it’s called logos. I also used to create my own stylized alphabets long before I learned about typefaces. Following my passion, I got a BFA in Visual Communications from the best (and only back then) Fine Arts University in Syria.
Soon after, I was headhunted from Qatar, where I have enjoyed nine years, working with the leading global design, advertising and event agencies such as Imagination, Publicis, DDB, BBDO and Fitch. Throughout my academic and professional exposure to art and design, I have developed an obsession for branding; from creative strategy to naming and sloganing followed by design then delivery. This obsession came in handy when mixed with the right amount of dedication. It gave me the opportunity to create many local and international brands, as well as the chance to work with global clients like Shell, Land Rover, Intercontinental Hotels and the Olympics.
From the Middle East and North Africa to Europe and North America, I have worked with a long list of clients in multiple industries scattered around the world. Designing in many languages such as Arabic, English, Spanish, Russian and Tajik. Luckily, I was able to travel, learn and collaborate on a global level. In 2015
I decided to move to Canada to cool down from the desert heat.
My clients and colleagues describe me as passionate, creative, dedicated, efficient, resourceful,
and fun. However, “Super Star” is my personal favorite description. Being a self-professed art nerd, I enjoy all forms of creativity from cooking to photography, and from stencilling to calligraphy.
In short, I love what I do and I hope you love it too.
