I am Mhd Gazwan Al Harash, a Syrian-born graphic designer and artist based in Dubai. I love exploring
vibrant and colorful concepts, and have a deep passion for urban art and culture. Design is my driving passion. Everything in my life is affected by it, life decisions are based upon it. Understanding how great design works – and showing others the importance of well thought out, beautiful design – is what I get the most joy from.
With more than 17 years of accumulated work experience, during which I worked in the fields of advertising and design at several advertising agencies in the Middle East and Gulf region, in addition to a substantial scientific background, which all together provided me with a very broad experience and many skills in this particular field of business.

I also have a very good experience in the management of advertising agencies, the management of creativity team as well as the administrative coordination with other heads of departments.
