About me

 

I am a London-based and London-born graphic designer and take inspiration from the exciting, if unconventional, route life has taken me down so far. For the past 6 years I've been a teacher, Secondary English and English as a Second Language, which has given me great insight into how we learn and how design can support learning and not hinder it. I have also worked extensively for an architectural charity, Article 25, which has given me a great respect for the built environment both at home and around the world. Studying Arabic and Middle East Politics as an undergraduate in Edinburgh has given me a love of Arabic calligraphy and Islamic art. I lived in Beirut for many years, studying the United Nations, teaching and learning Lebanese Arabic. I have recently returned to my sunny hometown, London, after living in Australia for a few years so I am also absolutely obsessed with the ocean and natural landscapes. I have just recently completed my postgraduate of Visual Communication at the London College of Communication. Find me on twitter at: @_mmomara
