  1. 1. ARCHITECT/ GRAPHIC DESIGNER MOSTAFA AL-ZEIN
  2. 2. - “There are three responses to a piece otdesign, yes, no, and wow, wow is the one I aim for" Milton Glaser - My name is Mostara Al—Zein, an Architectlerapnic Designer based in Damascus, Syria, I graduated from Damascus University, School of Architecture in 2014 among the top 20% or my class and irom there round myseli in a never ending endeavor to challenge my educational skills in real life situations. — while i enioy being an architect my love ior architecture is iused with my passion for graphics and conceptual design, and the more I indulged myself in architectural practices the more I came to terms that the two fields have more in common than i have ever imagined, not lust regarding a keen sense of proportions and matching colors. But, whether its having enough graphical skills to showcase my architectural ideas and designs in a properway, or using space planning logic to set up the layout for a poster or a magazine cover my knowledge in one field always came in handy when dealing with the other. - The ongoing armed conflicts in my country (Five years by now) may have altered my dreams and expectations in many ways, But, it never managed to diminish them. i became more determined to defy the odds and ielt more grounded to real life goals and situations, this can be seen in my graduation project where instead of the “Show off’ approach students usually take my partners and I decided to take up the lob at making a new vision for rebuilding and rehabilitating a war destroyed town in the outskirts or the Syrian capital. a dltficult and tedious task with many obstacles but a noble and most satisractory one indeed - When I'm not working on a design or thinking of one, I‘m usually out with my family, playing Tennis with lriends, or indulging myself in magic and rantasy themed novels —- The Vollowlrlg portiollo is a collection or selected works I've created through the pastfive years, by which i aim to showcase my logical, design and technical skills, I hope you enjoy viewing my works and please feel tree to oontact me at any time icr iurther iniurmation or inquiries.
