    Senior Art Director

    Karachi, Pakistan

I started my career as a junior graphic designer in Net Express, an internet magazine, Karachi, Pakistan in 2001. In 2006, i was able to build a tangible knowledge in the field of Graphic Design and invest in my creativity, thanks to the talented team i joined in M-com. I have more than 15 years of experience, out of which i spent around 7 years in Dubai. I was able to crack concepts that answer briefs, transform the concepts into visual form and carry them right through final print production. During these years of experience, i realized that i enjoy working with professionals mix of different nationalities. I am now looking out for fresh challenges and better prospects. I have same passion for my profession (if not more) as when I started out 15 years ago. I believe that my strong communication and client management skills with an emphasis on building long-term business relationships and ability to render dedicated hard work to enhance the image and performance of the team can contribute towards a stronger creative team. Strength: Art Direction, Ideation, Visualizing
