About me

 

I am currently doing my MA in Illustration and Visual Media at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London. As a Graphic Designer/Illustrator, I completed my Bachelors in Communication Design in December 2012 from Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi. I aspire to make it big in the design world with Illustration as my main focus. I am interested in Album Art, Poster design, Book designs, Character design, animation and anything that involves Illustration. My style of working is colourful, vibrant and versatile, I experiment with mediums and I also enjoy screen printing. My favourite designers are Roy Lichtenstein, Saul Bass and Sanna Annuka. I look for inspiration in everyday situations and like to document it in the form of my illustrations and paintings. My other interests are Cricket, Alternative, Indie and Piano rock music, Travelling, Photography, Film, and F1.
