Visual Identity/Product Design/Packaging/Web design

Koosha Andish Shahkar is a floor scrubber company which was on the verge of bankruptcy. The new board of director and management team wanted to relaunch the company with a new identity with their minds on the international markets.

The identity was designed in a way to have Persian values alongside an internationally understandable identity. The first letter of the Logo Is the sound of "K" both in English and Persian. The target audience was identified as a group of mostly male company directors between 36 to 60 years old. As the result a serious tone with themes of blue and yellow was chosen with a geometric design to ensure adaptability, trust, and timelessness.

Arboree is a small woodworking online only shop. The philosophy of arboree is to give another life to what remains from a tree by using it in a new story. Every woodcraft in arboree has a strong humanistic aspect to it and it wants to celebrate the gift of life. I created the tagline “Every wood has a story” and designed the identity around a tree that always stays green.

I also collaborate with arboree gallery with photography and creation of video content for Instagram.

Application design

This app is inspired by the #metoo movement and the fact that people are stronger together. the main function of the application is to create a harassment database by the place where it occurred, the date and the type of assault. In this way, people who have had a similar accident in the same place can share their experience, comfort themselves and complete the evidence against the perpetrator. With the data and statistics collected, it can also show dangerous neighborhoods and places. This data can be used by other people to avoid dangerous places, or by the police to investigate and take preventive measures. Public reports could also play a preventive role against attackers, as the time and place of the attack and the details will be shared and made public. the app is designed to integrate with social media (like Twitter).

After a session with director and head of communicating of TNN, they expressed concerned over the lost identity of TNN and the expressed the desire to play role in the cultural environment of the Mediterranean region. As TNN is a national organization I designed a visual identity system with 3 lines and 3 colors, that can be adopted by everyone from every age and every preference. The basic geometry used in the design allows it to be formed in every style and every circumstances. The goal was to have a system that its simplicity makes it possible to be expanded in different graphic styles, while keeping its identity.

Although the design is very simple, it can be easily stand out and be remembered among other brands and graphic elements in a city like Nice. The three lines also very practical to build patterns and create dynamic and unified graphic elements. This project was part of my year 2 design graphic in Ecole de Conde.

The aim of the London Design Biennale is to "raise awareness of the importance and universal relevance of design in contemporary life and culture". These two aspects are essential in the conception of the identity. As a part of second year of my Dessign graphic formation in Ecole de Conde, I designed digital presence of the festival with a new logo which is designed to be able to communicate the subject without any difficulty. The London part of the name, which is the most obvious part of identity and has less informative value is stylized.

The designer has always tried to make written language an art form by stylizing using physical characteristics such as the choice of font, clear or bold, round or square, short or long, wide or narrow, thin or heavy, color and much more. But now, with the help of technology, we can also use "time" as a characteristic. We can play with the speed of information to make punchlines and even jokes. We can increase expectations and focus on certain information by increasing the speed and then slowing down for the time being. With the help of music and the synchronization of text with music, we have a concept of "dancing" information. This is an experimental animated portfolio in the style of kinetic typographic with after effects.

A poster addressing the concept of AI and its future. I was addressing the emerging morality around creation of human-like identities for AI application like Siri, Alexa and Cortona.
