By: Engy Mohamed Ghada Wali, an Egyptian Graphic Designer who lives in Florence, Italy has had her fair share of accomplishments at a remarkably young age. At only 27 years old, she has already snatched herself two Adobe Design Achievement awards, has recently won the Granshan competition in Munich, and is considered to be one of the best 100 graphic designers in the world by the Society of Typographic Arts Chicago. That said, it only seems fair that Wali’s name made Forbes’ 30 under 30 Europe list, which has previously featured people like Adele, John & Patrick Collison, and Maria Sharapova. Her stream of accomplishments is more than merely justified; after all, the GUC graduate’s name has been associated with some of the most high-end advertising agencies including MI7 Cairo, Fortune Promoseven and J. Walter Thompson. Nonetheless, while Wali’s resume speaks for her success, nothing speaks louder than her art. Wali’s undeniable talent shines through her work, screaming out all the reasons why she has made it this far in the most exceptional of ways, because despite how challenging it is for an immigrant to gain significant international recognition, especially from a magazine like Forbes, Wali has gone against all odds and did her country proud.
