She graduated from American University of Sharjah with a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Communication. Whilst Diana’s study for the degree and attending conferences and workshops, exploring all sorts of different fields within Graphic Design, she found her utter fascination; Typography. As she claims, her most favourite thing to do is to unconsciously destruct, build, overlap, clutter, spread and play around with type of all shapes and colours. Whether it’s an absolutely random quote in Arabic, or a sentence that takes you a while to figure out – it’s all there.

Diana is also a blogger, where she features artists from all over the globe – even some personal friends of hers from university and such. She is currently working independently as a freelance graphic designer. You can see Diana’s customised header on the blog, which will last a month or more, until the next feature where a new artist provides a customised header.
