For this week’s (third) assignment in Introduction to Music Production course, I did an infographic that visualizes and briefly explains the main part of the Mixing board, or the Mixer, which is the Channel strip.
For those of you who are not familiar with a Mixing Board, it is the piece of equipment that allows you to mix different tracks of music and vocals, add different audio effects, manipulate the volume of different instruments, and output a stereo track from them.
I hope you enjoy it and share if you like.
For my second assignment in Introduction to Music Production course which I’m taking, I worked on another infographic. This time it visualizes a checklist of the steps and configurations needed to be taken in preproduction before starting to work in the Digital Audio Workstation (D.A.W.).
For those of you who are not familiar with DAWs, a DAW is a software that plays a major part in the current music production process through Recording, Editing, Mixing, to Mastering a music track. Some examples of a DAW are Apple Logic Pro, Pro Tools, Reason, Cubase, Ableton Live, Adobe Audition, and the simpler, lower-end Garageband (for iOS, for Mac), among many others.
I hope you enjoy it too.
You can share if you like it especially inf you know someone who could benefit from it!
In my latest venture, I’ve been studying a pretty interesting online course on Introduction to Music Production at Coursera.org, and one of the lessons was related to Propagation, one of the main properties of sound. As part of my first assignment, I had the idea of making this infographic.
I have the intention of expanding and refining it later, but until that time comes, I wanted to share it with everyone.
While I got some pretty good positive feedback from my peers in my music class, more feedback is always appreciated!
Enjoy & Share!

As 2013 came by, it was interesting to see how people tweeted Happy New Year in Beirut.
My friend and I decided to do this small project, visualizing these tweets into an infographic with a limited time we had.
The data was compiled from Twitter by Mohammad Chehab, a digital consultant (www.chehabmhd.com)
Then after some brainstorming on the way we should visualize it, it was my turn to design it into an infographic.
We hope you like it. Please feel free to Share!

In the context of Beirut Design Week 2012, the Graphic Design Survey 2012 in Lebanon was launched.
If you’re a graphic designer residing in Lebanon, please participate at:

Graphic Design (GD) is a growing profession in Lebanon, and this is clear in the growing number of GD graduates every year and the increasing dependence on visual branding and other design services.
Still, the cultural and financial appreciation of GD does not seem to pace beyond aesthetics and quick delivery. Many would blame this on Clients who prioritize budget over process; but, another key reason is behind-the-scene communication and business processes that many GD professionals struggle with.
Within this scope and in the context of the first Beirut Design Week, the idea of the GD Survey emerged to capture and register the GD profession’s status in Lebanon. Whether GD professionals are business owners, employees or freelancers; it is important for designers to exchange business process information and have the mutual benefit by better understanding where they stand on the scale.
This first GD Survey does not claim to make a comprehensive assessment, but it is a start toward this objective. Outcomes will help the GD community better understand their clients’ culture and financial appreciation of creative work.
The survey’s final outcomes will be published and shared with the design community for free. All survey takers will stay anonymous.
