Hi! My name is Hamda and I'm a multidisciplinary graphic designer
who desires to contribute positively
to the world through design.

During my childhood, I used visuals to navigate the complexities of learning in school, which led me to fall in love with and appreciate the importance of arts and design. Later in life, that background became my philosophy as a professional designer; one who strives to take the most tangled concepts and present them in the simplest way possible. My motto in life is to advocate for good design, enrich our humanity and be friendly to our environment.
