Muhannad Mahayni

Consultant, Designer, and Project Manager in İstanbul, Turkey

A senior Arabic graphic designer, expert on Mac and Adobe, enthusiastic about design and print with lots of love for the Arabic language and calligraphy.

More than 18 years of accumulated experience and a keen eye for detail. My experience lays in having been involved in many multilingual advertising campaigns, and in the whole process from brainstorming to final printed product.

Perhaps being born and raised in a place that has always been called «The cradle of civilization» - The land that gave the world very first alphabet - has been always myinspiration. Experience supported by enthusiasm got me involved in advertising, when itcomes to ‹Arabisation.› I believe I have been through all the difficulties, problems, and misunderstandings that may occur in this process (Arabic Fonts, Arabic Software, Arabic Operating Systems, Right-to-left Layouts, Translations, Compatibility, File Formats,Concepts Cultural Translation, Logo Adaptations, Calligraphy, Pre-printing and PrintingProcess .... etc.).

Awards and Honors:
