Ramadan Karim everybody!


-- Great post Gabriel!

I think calligraphy will remain to be an intrinsic part of "Ramadan graphics" - though it would be interesting to see it evolve and incorporate Latin text and more "Western" visual approaches...

I love how you described it all: "it promotes the Islamic world, the religion, the people as one group, one complex identity, one brand"

And would love to take part in your ongoing collaboration to learn more about your knowledge of the "Islamic" brand :)

-- Thanks for sharing Darine!

Well, I can tell you this has been in my life since birth. My father is a creative, illustrator, typographer and calligrapher. He even taught me at uni (ALBA). Its from him that I got interested to the point where I wrote my Master's thesis about the subject.
Its really interesting to discover this evolution in writing/image.

From another point, branding and identity are part of my passions as well...so they all fall into place perfectly :)

Ramadan Kareem to all!
