Afnan Aldimasi is an independent designer based Istanbul. She is originally Palestinian, was born in Canada, raised in America & grew up in the United Arab Emirates.

Afnan helps brands and design studios with Arabic logotypes to create differentiation in the market.

Through Afnan's observations of Arabic logotypes in the region, the majority fall under two categories. The first is very generic, lacks character and customization. The second involves customization however does not attend to fundamentals of the Arabic script. Both result in unfortunate outcomes and devalue both the designer's work & the brand's image. Along with her intuitive passion, this observation has led Afnan to particularly focus on Arabic typography in her work.

Her process involves in-depth concept & strategy development, research approach to visual communication, and collaborative processes.

Scopes of work include
→ Arabic Logotypes
→ Arabic Lettering
→ Brand Strategy Workshops

Available for projects and collaborations.
