Based in Beirut, Lebanon.


Studio Safar, co-founded by graphic designers Maya Moumne and Hatem Imam, is an internationally recognized design and art direction agency creating cross-cultural, interlingual exchanges, and distinct visual propositions. Working in collaboration with creative producers in diverse fields including film, literature, illustration, and photography, the team of designers at Studio Safar find innovation within their research and dialogues with localized histories of design and their efforts to reestablish connections to visual cultures and practices disrupted by colonialism. These references inform and augment contemporary impulses in the production of visual identities, exhibitions, websites, and publications, including the self-published biannual design magazine Safar, which fosters creative relationships and discourses on cultural production and design tendencies in the global South.
