Discover the interview with Taha Fakouri :
How did you become designer ?
When I go back in time and think about it, I realize that my mind has always been intertwined with design. When I was a kid, I used to draw pictures with my classmates that were more beautiful than them because I did it with all my being and passion. At that time, I was able to discover part of my interest in this profession. As a teenager, when I wanted to choose a professional field to continue my academic education and enter the job market, after consulting and taking various psychological tests, I chose graphic design to continue my work. I eagerly continued my work at the University of the Arts, and after many ups and downs, I spent about 20 years of my design career.
How would you define your vision of design, your style ?
From my experience, I can say that I have done important projects for different parts of the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Russia, the United Arab Emirates, and so on. In all of them, I used a special method to create creativity and different ideas so that the products could show themselves in global markets and be successful. I believe in avoiding stereotyped and one-handed packaging. They usually do not give a different and new feeling to the audience and cause them annoyance.
Feedback from my audience around the world shows that they are very excited about my designs and have achieved a lot. But in general, I started a style that was unparalleled in the world. I can show the culture and a part of the history of my country to the world in a new way and using miniatures. I do this mostly for packing saffron, dates, nuts. I am also so impressed that I have created packages that are different, which I call breakage, which is evident in my honey packaging.
For the future, what are your professional projects ?
I’m not talking about the future at all, because ideas and creations come in the moment and it depends on how I feel at the time, and that affects my ability and skill, and it may change the style of the projects, but if we want to. Let me tell you about my design vision, my design in packaging and business identity with the greater impact of the audience with packaging and packaging are overshadowed by existing technologies because its special design and uniform output is one of the most important factors in It is the sale and marketing of products, and this motivates more customers and stimulates their interest in buying packaging.
What do you like the most in your job ?
I am looking for more interaction with customers, audiences and other people in the world. So I publish my work and projects on websites, Instagram, pinterest, linkdien and other media to know the opinions of other customers and designers and use them for other projects. But when I see the output of my designs in exhibitions and shops and markets, the good feeling that people give me and it is transmitted to me and it makes me very happy.
