About Nadina Ali
My name is Nadina Ali and I’m a self-taught graphic artist currently based in London. My work is typography based and focuses on social justice, representation and inclusivity.
I was born and raised in Marseille by East African immigrant parents from Comoros who moved to France in the 1980s for a better life. I followed in their footsteps and moved to the UK to pursue better career opportunities in the mid 2000s.
I went to university in Manchester to study Clothing Design and worked in fashion doing product development and quality control for eight years. As my work in fashion wasn’t creative, I used to spend a lot of my spare time experimenting with different creative outlets, which is how I got into lettering and typography.
In 2020, following a career a break from the fashion industry and being made redundant at my day job due to Covid, I decided to focus on my typography work and went freelance. I have since used my work to speak about topics I care about and empower people to do the same in the process. Mediums I work with include posters, t-shirts, billboards, murals and art installations.
