Studio Nem. founded by the Lebanese graphic designer and visual artist Naji El Mir (aka Nem.). A Paris based multidisciplinary design studio that focuses on cross-cultural and multilingual projects. We have forged over the years an experience in the different areas of the graphic design and visual communication, from creativer direction to visual identity design, Arabic and Latin type design, motion design, book design and illustration. We mainly design for the artistic, cultural, musical and audiovisual scene for both public and the private sectors.

About me. My design education started at LAU (Lebanese American University) in Beirut, before I  moved to France to follow studies in Animation. I’ve been practicing graphic design from my studio in Paris since 2005. I was a team member in one of the Khatt Foundation’s Type design research projects, Typographic Matchmaking in the City between 2008 and 2011. My work has been exhibited internationally, and published in books and magazines like Arabesque 2 and La Revue Graphê to name a few. My work expresses a contemporary representation of the Arabic script as lettering and digital fonts and focuses on projects of cultural and political relevance to the Southwest Asian and North African region.
