Brainstorming session for a prenatal care website:
Client 1: “How hard would it be to have an unborn baby on the homepage that ushers you through the site.”
Client 2: “That would be creepy. What about just a regular out-of-the-womb baby.”
Client 1: “But then that’s not really PREnatal care, is it?”
Client 2: “True. Yeah, let’s stick with the unborn baby.”
Graffiti cubed was an event created AD1-210 residents Aisha AlQaseer and Sahar Sheikh.
This event was part of an experiment dealing with self expression. They provided students at the American University of Sharjah with blank 11x11cm boxes and instructed them to write or draw whatever they liked on them using poster paints and markers.
The event was a success as they managed to bring people together and let them express themselves through art.
This event was organized as part of our design studio course, Fall 2011 as part of a proposed promotional campaign for the Sharjah Biennial. By involving people in the creation of art, they built a new found interest in many of the students at AUS.

Short stop-motion clip by AD1-210 resident, Mira Al Qaseer.
The objective was to visualize a moment from the summer holiday.
Mira chose to depict a girls’ gathering where the movement of the cup and the tea being sipped represents the girls, the buzz and the chitchats that took place during the gathering.
the still empty cup signifies that the gathering is over, but the memory of it is still there - the tea leaves are left behind.
