Broadcast news as a Graphic designer 

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. Therefore, my responsibilities were:

 

1- Designing creative layouts for different sections of the Newspaper (Sports, Health, Business, Tech, Education local and international news).

2- Designing the pages and covers of Tabloid! mini-newspaper.

3- Writing reviews of some local news such as Film and Fashion.

4- Editing photos for digital usage.
