Khabar Keslan

Khabar Keslan is an independently run, volunteer-based, primarily English-language online review featuring art and critique from the Middle East, South Asia, and Africa. 

Initially, I was approached to illustrate three articles for the debut issue MEDIUM. I continued on to design their logo (image used in logo provided by Khabar Keslan), assisted with their website layout, and illustrated the cover plus two more articles for the second issue DISORIENT.

Creative direction by Omar Al Hashani

my initial idea was very literal- to take the word disorient and give it a sense of vertigo

The following are editorial illustrations for the digital and pdf issues of Khabar Keslan
