About me
I'm a self-taught graphic artist from Marseille and I am currently based in London. I have10 years combined experience in fashion design, product development and more recently graphic design doing artwork design for clothing, posters and book covers. My design medium of choice is typography and I am passionate about social justice, sustainable and inclusive business practices. As a result, I create work that's colourful and uplifting but also tackle issues such as racism and injustice towards people from minority backgrounds.

  • The Black Joy Posters Collection
    The Black Joy Posters CollectionAs part of a zine collaboration with online platform Ayoka and urban culture webzine 33 Carats, I designed a series of posters to go along the zine's theme of celebrating Black Joy. The aim of the zine is to showcase black artists, black people doing good within the Black community and beyond and the various ways Black people around the world keep themselves happy and joyful. I wanted this to be reflected in my posters by using both colourful imagery and uplifiting messages. In addition, I was
  • Not Even Water | A Ramadan Special
    Not Even Water | A Ramadan SpecialThe 'Not Even Water' collection was inspired by the question that most Muslims are all too familiar with - 'Not Even Water????'. This design was a humorous way for Muslims who are fasting during Ramadan to notify the non Muslims around them that indeed, they will not be drinking water during their period of fasting. It was launched for Ramadan 2019 in collaboration with brand Sassy Apparel.

    Black Joy: a special zine by Ayoka & 33 CaratsThe same way that some people have a hard time understanding the concepts of #BlackLivesMatter or #BlackGirlMagic, some won’t understand #BlackJoy: Don’t all people deserve to feel joy? What is so specific about the type of joy felt by Black people? To answer these questions, we spoke to activists and artists who believe that Black joy is a way of resisting racism, sexism and all forms of oppression.
