Branding, Illustration, Typography, Packaging

I am your local illustrator and graphic designer based in Perth. I'm always trying to incorporate illustration with graphic design and always learning new art styles and techniques. I often spend my spare time improving my illustrations and refine my Arabic typography.

What areas of graphic design are you most interested in?
I really enjoy branding because you can express the personality of the company or product. Packaging helps express the item/product and communicates the characteristics of the product.

Who are your favourite designers?
Matthew Wong. I love the hand lettering and illustrations he does. The general colour palettes he uses and the personality he adds conveys a recognisable art style. Also because he is my mentor.

What do you get up to outside of TAFE?
I often have passion projects I work on at home like creating concept art for new original characters, filling up my sketchbooks and working on refining my Arabic typography.

Favourite quote?
“Reality is wrong. Dreams are for real.” — Tupac

What skill would you like to master?
I would like to master different types of mediums of illustration like watercolour and gouache. Bettering myself at digital illustration and animation. Hard work and experimentation is always the best way to learn.

If you were stuck on a desert island and had to choose one food to eat everyday, what would it be?
Kebabs, the best food in the world.

If you could remove one thing from existence, what would it be?
Spiders, they scare me.
