About Alma Kamal : An award-winning graphic designer with a serious passion for print. Alma moved across the globe to learn more about design, herself and others. She believes that design can be applied to literally everything, but it works best when utilized to spread knowledge, love and compassion. Alma has been a designer for over 13 years and has worked in variant industries, including a few print centric places such as Chronicle Books and Brownbok magazine where she was a Creative Director in charge of a bi-monthly magazine as well as many other projects. Alma also worked on a catalogue for one of Takashi Murakami’s exhibitions. In addition, she was in charge of finding and recruiting talent from illustrators to photographers to designers. Alma's work has won many awards and was featured in different media platforms such as Adobe Live, Communication Arts and Print magazine.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Design is the fiber that holds everything together. There's not a single industry/object/subject that escapes design. Design is the suit companies wear to present themselves to the world, the way a cup handle is shaped, the print on a cloth, the lines and curves on a scarf, the visual language of our universe. Art and design are the beauty in everything we see and use. Even though design is mostly utilized to sell and promote products, its beauty shines the most when it communicates, educates and embraces.
