Fahad Ali Dhawi

Assistant Professor of Graphic Design

Dr. Fahad A. Dhawi is an Arabic typographer, information designer, and design educator. He holds a Ph.D. in graphic communication and Arabic typography from Central Saint Martins, UAL London. He earned his M.A in graphic design (distinction) in 2012 from Coventry University, and B.A in graphic design (Cum Laude) in 2009 with a minor in communication from the American University of Kuwait. 
Dr Dhawi’s practice-based research highlights the importance of Arabic typography and graphic communication in language learning and how teaching Arabic can be further ‘simplified’ through a creative visual pedagogic approach. His research reestablishes the term "educational typefaces" with the aim to possibly open up future research on the role of design and typography through the creation of educational typefaces—in visual pedagogy and interdisciplinary design.
