About Ahmad Swaid
A graduate of King’s College London’s MA in Cultural and Creative Industries, Ahmad has worked with some of the biggest names in publishing and fashion – from Garage and System Magazine to brands including Miu Miu. In 2017 he became Dazed’s Head of Social, and more recently he was made Head of Content, which also includes overseeing content on Nowness, AnOther Magazine and Dazed Beauty.
Working across all things digital and social media, Ahmad’s work has included creating an interactive ‘The End of the Decade’ timeline celebrating the 2010s to launching a week-long #LassoChallenge on TikTok to coincide with a print cover story featuring American rapper, Lil Nas X.
In 2020, alongside other Lebanese industry figures, Ahmad also co-founded non-profit organisation, Creatives for Lebanon, in response to the devastating August 4th explosion in Beirut. So far, the group has partnered with Sotheby’s, Art for Beirut and most recently Beirut Restore to help support Lebanon’s creative sector.
