Aya Al Bawwab from Beirut, Lebanon is in our Poster Monday spot of the day with her poster entitled “Beyond Carbon Neutral”. Aya Al studied graphic design at the American Univresity of Beirut and graduated in 2012. She’s currently completing her masters degree in Strategic Design and Management at Parsons The New School for Design.
The poster design is inspired by the title of the event Beyond Carbon Neutral. “The keywords that I worked with were ‘architecture’ and carbon’. I aimed to visualize the concept typographically by cropping the arabic words vertically, which are a translation of the title, in a way that they are still legible. The diacrtic marks and the dots usually add a beautiful texture to any arabic text, so I decided to highlight them in a different color to visualize particles floating in a defined space.” explains Aya. “I’m hoping I will be able to contribute to the world with more sustainanable/ environmentally conscious designs to make the world a better place.”
