Illuminating the spectrum: design inspiration behind Lightfest Symposium by Maryam Razi


Maryam Razi, one of the designers at UCLA ArtSci Center, designed the Lightfest Symposium graphics. The design drew inspiration from the shape of laser beams and the dynamic movement of light. Beginning with white, representing the color of light before it passes through a prism, the design transitions into the full spectrum of colors. The Lightfest design incorporated both digital and physical materials.

Maryam Razi wears multiple hats as a visual designer, eyewear artisan, freelance curator, and part-time writer. She focuses on the crossroads where art, science, technology, and culture meet. With a solid design and research foundation, Maryam is pursuing a Master of Science in User Experience, adding to her existing advanced degree.
