Role: Graphic Designer.
Keywords: Editorial design, journalism.
Objective: I was a graphic designer for a newspaper called GulfNews in Dubai. The main goal was to design for many sections of the newspaper under tight deadlines and restricted brand guidelines/templates while still being creative. Collaborating and communicating with journalists, photographers, editors, and selecting the best imagery to represent the articles.
Strategy: Newspapers are words-heavy but as a designer, I worked with imagery to narrate a story. By integrating visuals with type and adding simple graphics when needed. Below are a few of the pages I've designed.
