GDC’s Fatima Bahm showcases at Design Indaba 2017Graphic Design student, Fatima Mohammed Bahm recently exhibited her work at this year’s Design Indaba, held in Cape Town from 1 – 4 March 2017.
As part of the Design Indaba’s Emerging Creatives programme, Fatima had the opportunity to present her graphic design work to thousands of festival goers alongside the Conference, FilmFest and Nightscape.
Fatima’s areas of interest in graphic design include packaging design, infographic illustration, traditional fine art, typography and abstract symbol design. All of which are taught through GDC’s comprehensive graphic design course.
Through her passion for typographic layout and editorial design, Fatima’s sense of composition is evident throughout her portfolio of work. Most notably, her work challenges the relationship between image and type to create a unique visual language using detailed imagery and carefully considered typography.
At GDC, we’re proud to be a part of Fatima’s design journey. Dubbed “A graphic designer with an acute sense of composition and visual balance,” she is definitely one to watch in the graphic design space.
