Eye candy is nice, but it’s what lies underneath that truly matters.

Aqil Raharjo is an award-winning Multidisciplinary Designer who highly values innovation and creative growth. Graduated (B.Des) from OCAD University with distinction, his portfolio shows his interest on graphic design, illustration, art direction, lettering, brand strategy, product and packaging design, editorial design, motion graphics and animation, 3D modelling, UI/UX, photography, and videography. 

His tremendous curiosity in understanding consumers’ needs and his eagerness to explore new skills and mediums help him generate a strategic way of thinking. Ranging from print and packaging to experiential designs and digital experiences, he is dedicated in taking full ownership of his projects, from concept to execution. 


"Aqil is not a designer who plays it safe or follows a template – and that’s a good thing! This guy is a true original. His work is creative, inspired and bold. Even as an intern on our user experience design team, he was always in demand at IBM."

Susanne Frame, Content Strategist, IBM
