Hi! I'm Nour, a French-Lebanese nomadic illustrator and designer.
I graduated from the American University of Beirut (Lebanon) in 2009 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design and a minor in Art History, and from l'Institut d'Etudes Supérieures des Arts (Paris) in 2010 with a Masters in Multimedia Design and project management. I then started working as a freelance designer and illustrator, while pursuing a Research Masters in Art History at the Sorbonne University in Paris. I do both print and web design, and my work is a combination of illustration, design and lettering.
I love typography, photography, pop art, pretty patterns, mermaids, Tim Burton, Disney films, toys, unicorns, comic books, street art, polka dots, and everything vintage. And also, cats.
Music, pop culture, and the whimsical world of childhood are my biggest sources of inspiration.
I currently work as an independent designer and illustrator (in part for Mondato, a consultancy specializing in mobile financial services), and run my online shop Draw Me a Song, an experimental project that explores the fusion between music and visual art. The project won the Deutsche Bank Creative Award (2011) as well as a PACEIM grant and mentorship (2014), and was selected as a semi-finalist in the MIT Business Plan Competition (2012). You can find Draw Me a Song on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.
