Being a graphic designer and illustrator based in Beirut has always been linked with Rana Zaher’s perpetual inquiry into notions behind cultural, social, and personal identity. An avid freelancer since 2008, it was incessantly difficult for her to take on projects that lacked any essence of such an exhaustive visual discourse. Instead, Rana’s aim had been to utilize her research and sources in order to fuel a constant longing of figuring out her cultural and personal link to the region. Rana’s link to imagery and illustration in design has also always been a key aspect of her work. After all, the region harbors an extremely rich natural, cultural, and intellectual landscape.
