Graphic Motion Designer & Interactive Designer


Sep 2010 - Mar 2014
  • Bahrain National Monument: This project was my introduction to interactive design and graphic motion design. I learnt a lot of skills doing this job, mostly from assets management as well as remotely updating work from London to Bahrain through servers and clouds directly connected to all interactives created by the team that mentored me through the completion of the museum. You can find the showreel of this museum on Newangle’s website. Sheikh Zayed Desert Learning Centre: This Exhibition is held in Al Ain, in a beautiful museum containing almost 50 different interactives, about the preservation of animals in Abu Dhabi and the creation of self-sufficient cities such as Masdar. I was in charge of creating 5 of the interactives, which included coming up with the interface design and all transition animations including diagrammatic animations. I was also involved in motion graphics overlayed on film along with the editing process. Filming and Editing for the Newangle Website: I was in charge of going to all exhibitions available in London, created by Newangle, and film the installed interactives such as the Museum of London’s Gallery of Modern London, The Elizabeth Garrett Anderson exhibition for UNISON and Scott’s Last Exhibition at the Natural History Museum. Saudi Arabia Aramco museum: This Museum was a great experience allowing me to use every aspect of my skills (UX UI design, Motion graphics, Team work), going from the creation of flow-paths to the completion of all interactives including asset management and amendments given by the client. I worked on almost all 40! interactives that were being created. I started creating interface for 5 interactives. Then, I took part in the storyboarding of some of the animations (including 3D work with C4D) that would be then animated by me and the rest of the team. Kuwait KOC museum: This project is still on-going. I was asked to do some animations with motion graphics introducing a specific interactive that had to do with explaining how oil rigs and drills worked in order to access the oil. Under NDA. ?? Buckingham Palace: I was working with renowned Art Director David Bickerstaff for the Buckingham Palace Ball room exhibition. I was in charge of designing and animating a 9 meters wide motion graphic video of the Royal family’s genealogical tree from King George III to Prince George. This piece will be installed in Buckingham Palace’s ball room. Under strict NDA.
