Mary Choueiter discovered that scissors can do magic and engaged in a career of perfecting cut out techniques in bright colors. Her love for paper is only equaled by her love for what is on the paper; stories, images, typography, and all the white space in between.
Inspired by old Islamic calligraphic manuscripts, she conducted several experiments in designing Arabic lettering to write stories and fables on the history of her country, Lebanon.
Her typography work for the Beirut Exhibition Center signage was a Professional Runner-Up at the 2011 Core77 Design Awards. Her design work in print, branding, web and exhibition design has taken her to Lebanon, Amsterdam, and New York where
she worked on the branding of Mathaf, the Museum of Modern Arab Art in Qatar with Wolff Olins. She currently works at Ralph Appelbaum Associates, New York and has developed exhibition and media design for the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, Moody Gardens, as well as an art museum in Beirut. Mary received a Merit Scholarship from the American University of Beirut where she pursued a BFA in Graphic Design. She holds an MFA in Digital Media from the Rhode Island School of Design extending the element of play and her interactive hands-on work process from print to the digital realm.
