Meet The Beirut Book People | Celine Khairallah

Role: Arabic editor & Arabic font designer

I met Celine last November in London. We were both part of a design exhibition at the Graffik Gallery. I did not know her but when I discovered her work, I was charmed. By the refinement of Scene Beirut's designs, and by her brand's manifesto. Back to Beirut a few weeks later, I was pleased to buy a couple of pouffes from her collection. Finally, last spring, I asked her to pick sentences from songs or books in Arabic and to create a font specially for "The Beirut Book". And she did an amazing job. That’s a fact.
