Research Project: Graphic communication in a multilingual environment
"In July 2008 I completed an MA in Branding and Identity Design at NTU. I achieved a distinction and become more confident about my design, research and learning abilities; a PhD then became a possibility in my mind.
"I'm intending to finish my PhD in three years time and go back to Jordan to start my academic career in the department of Graphic Design at the University of Petra.
"In the global village we live in, the design for multicultural audiences is becoming a common need. The idea of exploring the visual communication requirements for multilingual audiences came from my previous interest in the function of graphic design in communicating and engaging international audiences."
