Hi, I'm Nura! A Chicago-based graphic designer from Jerusalem.

I graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA in Visual Communication Design in May and I am currently looking for a full-time position in Chicago!

I have an immense love for bookmaking, typography, and design for print, and love tactility and creating tangible experiences. Over the past few months, I've touched up on my HTML, CSS and JavaScript skills and developed a love for UI/UX design! Overall, I am motivated by originality and believe that the best design comes from the understanding and observation of human experience and interaction. I admire and strive to create design that is practical, innovative and thorough—a design that engages, empowers and elevates people.

When I am not designing, you can catch me trying out new restaurants, playing board games, finding new terrains to explore, and practicing handstands.

If you’re interested commissions, collaborations or just to connect, you can contact me here. You can also follow me on Instagram or connect with me on Linkedin!
