Hi!
Creative Art Director with a bachelor's degree in Applied Arts and over 15 years of experience in advertising and Graphic Design. 
As an art director, I lead the charge on all graphics production activities, developing print specifications and delivering top-notch creative solutions using my expertise in branding, print design, social media design, typography, and the Adobe Creative Suite. 
I have a track record of delivering innovative solutions and leading successful projects and I have led teams of designers and production staff to consistently achieve outstanding results. 
In addition to my role as Art Director, I co-founded two startups - Satori Adventures and Blue Odysea - that help people tap into their full potential through nature-based experiences. Since 2014, I've organized over 42 successful experiments in Egypt, bringing in over 450 participants. 
My mission is to empower people to discover their essence, achieve clarity about their life goals, and confidently follow their dreams. 
I specialize in creating original, polished, lyrical, and aesthetically appealing designs for corporations, agencies, and individuals. 
Currently based in Cairo as an Art Director and Explorer, I'm always on the lookout for new challenges and opportunities to showcase my skills.
