Calligraphy & Digital Design
Arabesque Zodiac Posters
As an Arabic calligrapher and love for lettering, I decided to create a series of designs that characterize each zodiac sign in Arabic. The signs were done by hand in Arabic calligraphy and vectorized in Illustrator. The Arabic calligraphy shown also translates to each of the sign's characteristics to add a more personalized touch.
This project wasn't just digital, as mentioned above – I sketched these designs by hand and worked them into Adobe Illustrator. This series helped me win the Therese McCabe Ralston Connor Fund, a highly competitive project-based scholarship contest hosted by the Art Department at The City College of New York.
