Hi, I'm Yara.

I’m a graphic designer based in Austria, originally from Amman, Jordan, but with roots in Dubai, Toronto, and Dallas. My work combines a background in communications with a technical approach to visual design solutions. I am currently a graphic design consultant for the UNODC PTRS and an illustrator for an Arabic children’s book series titled Adam wa Mishmish.

Previously, I headed the communications team at Amman Design Week and was responsible for developing and launching a new website to serve as an information hub for design in Jordan and the region. I was also responsible for developing, overseeing, and maintain branding and visual styles for all communications efforts on behalf of the organization.

Other experiences include combining corporate and NGO projects, with a history of leading print and digital design projects to completion. I have worked on local and international communications, publications, advertising, and campaigns for companies and organizations, including takween (Goethe Institut), WANA Institute, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, USAID Jordan, Trendesign Magazine, Mondelez International, GSK, Samsung Mobile, and several other global brands.
