>typography challenge

Working with the Lebanese Association for Civil Rights made us brainstorm many times: how do we make a strong and serious message reach the youth without boring them? And more difficult: how do we make it with arabic typography? A special call here for arabic font designers: we need more choice! Anyway the job was tough but the end result was "Bilad", a refreshing monthly magazine which is now getting a great feedback from its young readers!

>beirut fashion scene: julien abboud

Tonight I was "front row" at the Julien Abboud fashion show.
Winner of last year's "project fashion", Julien strikes again with an amazing collection, mixing streetwear cuts with haute couture materials. Check Julien's website here, designed lately by Pomme S.

>"posh plastics"...

The ultimate gift to bring back from beirut!
Images d'Orient are rubber tabletop items (coasters, trivets, placemats...) inspired from old mediterranean pavements.
A nice example of traditional design mixed with a modern material.
Pomme S is currently working on all the brand image
and the website. I will post a link as soon as it's ready!

>happy mother's day!

First post, first day of spring!
A nice day to be re-born...
Check the cool ceramics I did for my mum:
hand painted wine coolers (or vases!)
When I saw the final result I wanted to keep them for myself,
but hey what's life without sacrifice?!
Cheers mum!
