Description

Poster Design for the Graphic Design 4th Annual Students Exhibition at Dar Al-Hekma College.

The poster was a play on bilingualism. Dar Al-Hekma is a women’s college in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. English is the main language for all courses apart from, ofcourse, Arabic.
Students speak both languages very fluently and often mix both together even in a single sentence.
It has always fascinated me.

Some English letters were replaced with Arabic ones that are pronounced in the same way.

Inspiring quotes by artists and designers such as '‘I am still learning’' by Michelangelo were strategically placed through the poster.

The color bars represent the students of the first graduating class from the design program who were featured in the exhibition.
