The Beirut explosion was massive, says designer Tala Safie. "It either killed, wounded and/or traumatized every single person I know. Family and friends had their houses and workplaces destroyed." Safie is trying to help raise funds for Studio Safar (creators of Journal Safar), which was completely destroyed in the blast. "A lot of the aid has been raised for relief efforts, which is incredible, but these creative studios won’t see any of it," she says.
