Below are several short videos that capture the essence of Tasmeem 2015, an International Art & Design Conference I co-directed here in the Middle East. During Tasmeem 3ajeeb! several of our invited guest produced several experimental videos as part of the conference activities. As part of our conference proceedings, the Tasmeem Co-Chairs collaborated with an external agency to document the processes and outcomes of making as research (3ajeeb! Studios).

As part of Tasmeem 3ajeeb! 2015, we partnered with OFFF from Barcelona for a one day 'OFFF on Tour' event we called 'Tasmeem Day OFFF'. For each OFFF event, a special title sequence is designed and screened at the event. The title sequence fo OFFF Qatar was created by the amazing team MUCHO. This was their first time creating a motion graphic title sequence, and it was well worth the wait. The beautiful imagery captured the essence of each presenter and person involved at Tasmeem. 
We were happy to partern with OFFF and support them for their first OFFF on Tour Event in Qatar, and the Middle East.
