Graduate Student Profile
Shaban Al Refai
Area: Visual Communication
Undergrad: University of Texas at Arlington
Having come from a diverse background, my experiences yield the groundwork for my philosophies. Whether its a sign I pass on the road or a trip to another country, my inspiration is derived from the world around me. It's my hope that one day my work inspires others just as others' work has inspired me.
With an interest in typography and the relation between its audience and purpose, my research in the MFA program at UTA will include cultural studies and the development of my own typefaces.
