Juhood (Woohoo Updates!)


This is an academic journal on Middle Eastern and North African affairs, for which i designed the cover and layout. “Juhood … is an arabic word that means, “make every conceivable effort; do one’s utmost.” (From The Letter from the Editor) My inspiration for the cover (shown above, front and back) was to use a physical metaphor for this struggle which would also represent the culture of the land.

As this was an academic journal, I designed the layout associating notes and citations closely with the text to encourage close reading. I chose the typefaces Goudy Old Style and Rotis Semi Serif, the first for its calligraphic qualities (in keeping with the MIddle Eastern motifs) and the latter for its contrasting qualities.
