    Thank you Osama for your kind words, however I should correct you on some points which you have touched on. Some of the I-City work was indeed “executed” by dear Mariam (so is this blog by the way). Mix FM was “executed” by the AUK inn-tern but was not “designed” by him. We have never taken credit away from anyone in fact I am famous for sharing my credits with others as a form of encouragement.

    I hope that this correspondence which we received from Mariam explains everything to everyone.

    Dear Mr Louai, Diana and Mr Kosta

    Hope this mail finds you all well

    Its been a while since I mailed all of you and I am happy to know that Paragon is excelling. I truly miss the Paragon World of creativity.

    I recently visited the blog and I am writing with reference to the mention of the Icity ads on the post “paragon wins four accolades at the 2009 summit creativity awards” .

    I observed that the credits that may have been provided for the awards has mentioned Huzaifa as the Graphic Designer and also that Osama has corrected the same on the Blog.

    I would like to Thank Mr Louai for correcting the same with a mention on the blog however I would like to state that most of the work on the ICity Go places ads were executed and designed by me under the Guidance of Mr Kosta. I am sure that Mr Kosta could confirm this as we did drawings of each place (Country) and individually designed the ads with the ear phone wires for each of the countries mentioned by Our Client.

    I also designed the Ramadan special ad with the Moon.

    I am positive that Huzaifa was not a part of the design and would have probably re-released my original files for a re run of the ads in the papers in my absence.

    I would also like to mention that the Safehands Stationary was also designed by me under the Guidance of Mr Kosta as with the stationary of Tarasul, KGL Logistics and many more.

    I have placed the ICity Go places ads and the Safe Hands Stationary as a part of my Portfolio and the mention on the blog is contradicting the same. This could prove faulty in my career graph and could affect my chances of getting a job.

    It would be highly appreciated if you could clarify the same on the Blog and also on the credits.

    Thanking you

    Kind Regards

    Mariam John

Louai Alasfahani

ANUBIS was a very old god of the ancient Egyptians, universally worshipped throughout the land and became considered the gatekeeper and ruler of the underworld; the “Guardian of the veil“ he was “Lord of the Cleansing Room” and the opener of the roads of the North. “He observed the weighing of the deceased’s heart against the feather of Maat [Truth] and reported his findings to the jury of the gods.
