Ruh was commissioned to create custom calligraphy as part of the highly successful ‘Contemporary Muslim Fashions‘ exhibition at de Young Museum in San Francisco. The Jude script was selected to best accompany the animated and dynamic modelling from Halima Aden during the photoshoot. The final result is an amazing exposition of colour and movement.

This video features the talented Halima Aden with my calligraphic work.
