Peter's story

Peter Gould is a celebrated designer, creative entrepreneur and artist. He is described by the BBC as “among those young urban global Muslims leading the emergence of a new Muslim cool.”

After embracing Islam over a decade ago, Peter was inspired by a series of spiritual and artistic journeys through classical cities such as Fes, Damascus, Istanbul and Mecca, resulting in a flourish of remarkable creative projects uniquely fusing traditional Islamic design elements and his own vibrant, fresh graphic styles.
