Omar Al Zo’bi, Jordanian Designer

Above: Illustration by Omar Al Zo’bi, reads Rodda Lee E’tebaari. The work from this young Jordanian designer somehow strikes me as especially resonant and human. He has a very generous eye, and seems to have a truly sympathetic relationship with both his work and his subjects.

Above: A few more samples of Omar’s work. It is exciting to see this work in a contemporary global context. I am struck by how well Omar seems to blend both
a contemporary feel in his illustrations, but also address regional issues
and subtleties.

Take some time to examine his work through his own website here, or peruse the many examples on his Flickr page.
