URBANIST | DESIGNER | R&D Program Manager 

Mina Sami

Coming from an Urban Design background, studying Industrial Design and having an experience in design studios have taught me how to mix technical and structural objectives with attractive artistic tastes in a design projects.
I look forward to continue my work on communities that not only unite urbanism, art and creativity but also are inclusive for their residents.

My CAREER

Every great design begins with an even better story ; )

As a designer, I believe in working in the real world of industry and dealing with real scenarios. Therefore, to gain practical experience, parallel to my studying, I have been working for one of the famous and international creative design studios.
I have learned that successful design requires not only good ideas, but also the practicality that allows the design to be ultimately carried out. If a design can be implemented, then this is the mark of a good design, but it is important to have experience with the practical aspects of design in order to understand which designs are effective and which are simply impractical.
