Richard Kahwagi

I am a London-based, Beirut-born multidisciplinary graphic designer and polyglot problem solver. I specialize in creative direction and have an avid love for all things Arabic typography. I have been in the creative field for 10 years and my work exhibited, sold, and published. A highlight has been being invited to the biennial design conference Tasmeem Doha, alongside regional and international talent. In 2016, my talk on Arabic Typography and Popular Culture was part of the Data4chan.ge conference.

I have a passion for collecting and documenting Arabic and Orientalist vinyl records from and around the Middle East.
