Amine Ghorab is a graphic designer working in Paris. Amine never studied a specific design course at art school but instead gained a communications degree from Ecole Supérieure de Publicité in Paris. “During this time I worked at advertising agency DDB and then collaborated with artists and small studios,” explains Amine. “But I’ve always been passionate about images and aesthetics. I had the chance to live and work in an environment where there was space to develop my artistic skills. Then when I got my first computer I started to dig into it and install every software I could get, starting to design things for my friends and me.”
The self-taught designer enjoys working on music-related projects creating 3D illustrations, typography and identities. He approaches his projects by looking at the material and physical aspects of the task, and the results are super slick renders and strong typography that shies away from the minimal sans serif typefaces seen in many projects at the moment. “I find my inspirations from artists in different fields of work, like Koichi Sato, Peter Lloyd’s airbrush illustrations, typography from Karl Gerstner or the sculptor Jacob Epstein,” explains the designer.
Amine’s eclectic range of references has led to him art directing tour identities and promotional material for artists and producers, and he’s currently looking to build on his portfolio. Through his work Amine hopes to create more than just a visual solution to the briefs he’s set, but to also “explore the potential of creating more interpretative response."
