I am a visual storyteller.
I find it hard to categorize what I do, but I have worn multiple hats, including Inventor, Product Designer, Logo Designer, Toy Designer, Packaging Designer, UI/UX Designer, Brand Designer, Motion Graphics Designer, Illustrator, Photographer, Videographer, Visual Strategist, Design Researcher, Copywriter, and more to come.
Everything I create is always for a greater purpose. I feel creatively fulfilled when I discover new opportunities that can brighten someone's day, even if it means taking risks and tackling previously unchartered territories.
Curiosity fuels me.
Areas I am highly passionate about
I'm comfortable with being uncomfortable.
I make career moves based on one mindset: to always be curious and do things outside of my comfort zone. This mindset has allowed me to gain valuable knowledge which I fuse into my design process, thus broadening my understanding and unlocking new ideas. Below is my professional journey that demonstrates how I explore many disciplines and go beyond the standard way of doing things.
Words from the people I respect
"Aqil graduated with distinction, and it's easy to see why. He is a creative, multi-talented designer who never stops working. He takes his design to a high level of concept and execution, and then looks for ways to make it even better."
