Hole In the Wall. Doha, Qatar is a hub for cultural diversity and what comes with that is the emergence of rich culinary history and culture. Having different kinds of culture and people across the globe in one place created a demand for food choices in the city. The influx of workers from developing countries made a market for hole in the wall restaurants. This low vernacular restaurants found around the city emerged from that. This inspired the use of low vernacular imagery and a very sketchy, often snapshots of restaurants and street photographs.

Parallax Project.
The first project in a graphic design visual narrative course. Students are asked to investigate 'narrative' and select three photographs to tell a story. The photographs represent a beginning, middle and end, but do not have to follow that order. Students are then asked to investigate ideas of diachronic and synchronic as visual story telling devices. The final outcome of the project is a series of 3-5 scenes that use multiple photographic images that have been 'animated' to create a surreal scene and tell a story. All the images in these projects are static images that have been dissected and reconstructed in photoshop and then animated using after effects. 
The students work shown here is: Noor Al Thani, Mohammed Jawad, Ghada Al-Suwaidi, Mack Cortel and Aisha Al Thani
