Hello. I’m Zenab.
I conduct workshops on lettering; calligraphy; letterform design and typography. I organise Sign walks and restore old handmade signs digitally. I'm currently involved in rebuilding, reforming and refurbishing the 1980's Golber Jobbler roller press. I do type talks and share type stories.
I hold a BA in Visual Communication Design from Swinburne University, Australia and an MA in Typeface Design from the University of Reading, United Kingdom.
I work as a typography/ design lecturer at the Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore. Previously, I was a production assistant at UNSW (University of NewSouth Wales); creative consultant at FujiXerox Australia. As a facilitator, I have assisted TypeCamp during India camp., and curated calligraphy workshops with Workshop Australia, before that as a senior visualiser at Positive Art and Ideas I've worked on corporate design projects (AstraZeneca; PWC; Aditya Birla; L&T; and Reliance) such as corporate branding, presentations, publications, design templates and environmental graphics.
Lastly, besides typography, I like to do street doodling and baking.
