Graphic Design from Syria: Sedki Al Imam

Listen to this.

Sedki Al Imam is a young designer from Aleppo. At only 24, Sedki’s designs have proven that talent knows no age. Apart from being tremendously cute, Sedki’s designs have been pressing on timely socio-economic issues of Aleppo [specifically]. He is still forming his online presence, but I am more than happy that Syria’s talented bunch are finally joining the interweb.

During the past few months, Aleppo’s conditions have deteriorated. Sedki addresses these conditions in a very subtle matter. Seeing his designs on my Facebook timeline has ached me. The Aleppo I see in his designs is not the same one I visited a while back. It is the remains of a city ever so great.

His designs are humorous and carry a rather distinctive local virtual scent. He has a design studio and could possibly be your designer on your next big project. For more information, check here.

I usually take more time introducing Syrian artists, but I believe Sedki’s work says more than enough.

For this post, I specifically chose designs that reflect on the Syrian situation and how he deals with it. But Sedki, as I understood from what he told me, is more interested in culture and arts. His stance is apolitical.

His designs:

“Silence.. For you, for Syria.”

“Today’s game: Search for bread.”

In reference to the national Anthem of Palestine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ajDgudMC18

“Give me a tank of oil and throw me in the ocean”

“I miss you.”

“Opposition or supporter: Listen.”

My favourites from his work:

Syrian Dictionary 2011 – 2012

“My Syria is crying”

“My city is exploding [being bombed]” With reference to current conditions in Aleppo

“Let the war begin” | Inspired from Zimo’s new album “Ana Insan.”

Displaying Aleppo landmarks and major artists. “Aleppo”
