Nora Zeid is an illustrator, designer and visual artist based in Dubai. Her practice is simultaneously complex and accessible and seeks to spark discourse without excluding or alienating audiences.

After working as a graphic designer at Abjad Design for three years, Nora shifted her focus to her visual arts practice as well as freelance illustration. She has done work for clients such as VICE, NoGood, Matter, Dubai Culture and Dubai Design District. She holds a B.S in Visual Communication from the American University of Sharjah.

Nora has participated in exhibitions including Cairo Prints Exhibition - Edition II (Cairo, 2021) and SIKKA Art Fair (Dubai, 2019). Her comic titled 'East of Home' has been published in Sharjah Art Foundation’s anthology Corniche 2020.
