The Ramadan season seems to bring out the creativity of our Muslims friends. Wafaa Samir, a 24-year-old artist from Cairo, thought of a project that she could do during the Ramadan, thus the birth of her project - 'Yamish'. Read on to see her very interesting work pattern design.

The patterns were created using 'Yamish' which is a popular treat in Egypt during Ramadan. The treat is simply a combination of dried fruits and nuts usually mixed with milk.
Designing the patterns was completely spontaneous. I brought the treat and started playing with it. The lighting also was very simple, one direct source of light from above.

I wanted to make something related to Ramadan so I started thinking about the objects and the products that usually appear during Ramadan. It was a long list of things that are related to the month, but I chose Yamish because of its variety of colors and shapes.
