About Ali Al-Sumayin

Ali Al-Sumayin

Digital Minimalism

Paring down forms into their simplest of components is a skill Ali Al-Sumayin has honed to create his unique style of graphic art portraits. He is able to find the perfect balance within his compositions, working with minimal shapes to great effect.

Ali is a Dubai-based multidisciplinary designer with a breadth of work that includes illustration, photography, branding, film, and typography. While having a background in architecture, he has always been drawn to the arts, whether that be illustration or Arabic typography.His creative influences and eye for design can been seen in his logo and other graphic design work just as in the stripped-down, clean aesthetic of his portraits.


Ali’s work is about finding the most prominent, defining features of a person’s face and refining those parts down to their simplest elements.

By spending time observing the subject of his portrait, Ali is able to discover a concise way to express their characteristics. This is usually done with a series of sketches, after which he will often ask his friends if they can recognise the person from the design.

He starts the digital stage of the work by using vectors to create smooth, clean lines to create strong forms. Working in this way, he is able to experiment with adding and subtracting shapes, creating negative space, and coming up with interesting colour palettes.
