Boutique 1, a Middle Eastern in-store magazine, is a luxury fashion and lifestyle publication collected by fashionistas throughout the world. As Boutique 1's Art Director for its first three years, Rana envisioned and initiated design concepts that the magazine still follows today: experimentation and pushing beyond the expected parameters of Middle East design. Boutique 1 magazine covers embrace the philosophy of Islamic prohibition against the human figure, something that is so unexpected for a fashion magazine.
As a result, abstract images are created to convey the magazine's themes, be it glamour, travel, celebration, cinema, art, food, trasformation or music.
The studio also designed glamorous bicycles inspired by the souks in Damascus to display the magazine in store. See following page.
