After several weeks of planning, the iChat presentation by Mahmoud Arafa and his firm, Design Frame, came to fruition.
Arafa spoke from his Washington D.C. office and included his colleagues in Cairo as well. That sentence gives a hint at one of the things that makes Arafa so interesting – his business and designs cross cultural and geographical boundaries everyday.
Arafa provided real-world examples and stories along with inspiration for Graphic Design and Communications students and local industry professionals. His disarming and conversational style made everyone a believer in his motto – “chase your passion, not your pension.”
On a personal note – Mahmoud – thank you very much for sharing your experiences with Bismarck State College students, faculty and local professionals. It meant more to us than we can tell you.
