I’m Jad Hussein. LOOK SPECIFIC is my graphic design studio. I live in Paris where I work as a designer, an editor, and a teacher of typography and editorial design. From 2012 to 2017, I also co-ran a publishing company. 19/80 Éditions has published approx. twenty titles about cities, contemporary photography, the energy of youth and more.

At the office, we develop design solutions for visual communications such as books, identities, magazines, posters or websites. We work for institutional, corporate and “extreme” sports clients. We like our work clever, precise and joyful and sometimes receive accolades for our work.
