Change, for some, is usually terrifying, however as the saying goes, ‘’Opportunity knocks only once’’, I’ve decided in 2008 to take a leap into a new journey called Dubai.
A graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, I found my passion in graphic design. For 9 years, I’ve enjoyed designing posters, flyers, wall graphics, digital & more for a retail and F&B company. Later on, I’ve decided to redirect my path towards admin work.
Joining The Card Co was a blessing. Being the first friendly face you see when you enter the boutique has its challenges. For example, meeting and greeting clients have been tough at the beginning, but as they say, ‘’Practice makes perfect’’, and I truly believe that it has become a skill that I’m perfecting day by day.
Although I stepped away from the creative realm, however The Card Co.’s environment with its white walls, unique invitations and lively spirit allowed me to realize that creativity is still a big part of me that I will find difficult to let go, especially that in the future, I do plan to create my own gift shop back home inspired by the elegance and sophistication that The Card Co. portrays.
For the few months I’ve been here, I have seen tremendous growth in my skills, and I can’t wait to see what more I will be learning from The Card Co. and its supportive team!
Whether branding, typography, design, or photography, I live and breath design and the visual arts.
A graduate from the American University of Sharjah, I possess a Bachelor's in Visual Communication and a minor in photography. I am fascinated by the world around me - glimpses of adverts while driving, lyrics from catchy songs or even day-to-day interactions –my work is inspired by all facets of everyday life.
Working at The Card Co. has opened me to an exciting new world of creativity, colour and opportunity. Each day I am challenged to cater to the different wants and needs of clients. This is never easy, but achieving the right tint of color, shape or design is exactly what strengthens a designer – and leaves the client with an end product they can truly treasure.
As an optimist and go-getter, I am always up for a challenge, so The Card Co. is perfect for me. Joining the team has given me an opportunity to really expand my knowledge in design, especially typography. I am now able to determine the exact font that works with the theme of a certain invite or business card.
I am constantly striving to improve and learn more as the days come, and I am glad that The Card Co is the place to do that.
