Journal Safar

April '14

With Journal Safar we became editors, curators, photographers, and translators. It is a sixteen page bilingual publication in Arabic and English conceived, published and designed by Studio Safar. We commissioned six artists to contribute to this pilot issue, themed around the celebration of spring and supplemented with a poster. It presents to the reader an eclectic collection of pieces on and around graphic design, and in relation to other creative fields we are passionate about such as food, film, art, comics and poetry. The bilingual journal follows a particular system in combining Arabic and English. The translations (of either Arabic or English text) appear as a form of footnote below the correspondent original piece, creating a rich, coherent and, most importantly, accessible outcome for the interested reader.
