Project A: Book/Magazine Re-Design: Production Plan [Alia T]

Book Title: “Being Straight in Allah’s Path” – “Al-Istiqamah 3ala Deen Allah”

Book Story: The booklet is about how a Muslim should seek the right path throughout his lifetime; they should believe in Allah and then stand steadfast. “Istiqamah” is an important concept of Islam; it basically means to be straight and follow the straight path of Islam.


Art Direction:
I would describe the path of the prophet and Allah as a straight road leading to a bright light. This light would be a symbol of the outcome a person gets from choosing the straight path; it is either a light of happiness or a light from heaven. The path would be surrounded with gloomy things indicating the obstacles a person may go through reaching their final goal.

Straight path, light, guide…

Photoshop Techniques: Image adjustment, layering, playing with effects and colors…

  1. Hope you are all well by now. How are you?
    Your art direction is set for a new design. I would like to see the unique characteristics of Istiquamah. What does it really mean? What is a path and what are the meanings of straight paths? Are they revealed in any other forms of nature? Any metaphor can you use to express the message? Think out side of a box maybe? yun*
