The word “Hamsa” comes from the Hebrew word “Hamesh,” or the Arabic “Khmsah,” which means five. The series is inspired by the Hamsa hand found throughout the Middle East and North Africa.
The project challenges the known and complex forms of Khmsah by bringing clarity and simplicity.
The core of the project is simple to experiment with design and test the series in a wide range of formats and mediums. The series is designed to be effective on a wide range of materials, weather it is fabric, metal, paper, or any digital applications. The symbol and typography were constructed from equal circle grid to make the design more symmetrical and even.
