Didsy, AKA Dina Benbrahim, is a visual artist and a creative in advertising. She earned a Bachelor in Business Administration, studied Arts and Social Sciences and graduated with a Master’s degree in Marketing and Communication. She also has a 4+ year copywriting experience with Shem’s Publicité, J. Walter Thompson Casablanca and as a creative entrepreneur. Today, she’s pursuing her MFA in Graphic Design and is teaching in UF. With an experimental and multidisciplinary approach to creation, her body of work is primarily interested in the role of society being an industry of manipulation and the way it affects our lives.
Dina has recently been ranked #2 Silly Person in the Universe after Bob l’Éponge. Writing her own bio using the third person is quite a proof of silliness. Badly mimicking Rodin’s thinking man is another one (usually, thinking does not involve a nose).
