I am Ali and I work as a freelance graphic designer, photographer and art director. My speciality is food and lifestyle and my passion is to be innovative and ethical in my work and influence!
MY BUSINESS VALUES:
Eco-friendly: I source materials ethically to make as little impact on the environment as possible. All my print material has been ethically sourced from recycled produce; cotton t-shirts to elephant dung.
But don’t let that put you off, because all of my material is bio degradable (yay)! I work with companies and individuals to help them take a conscientious approach to their business.
Fashion: I love fashion and how it influences how we consider our environment and the people within it. It's constantly developing and impacting music, the arts, culture and goes beyond just clothes!
Food: I love cooking, especially baking but I certainly LOVE eating. I am curious and have an appetite for new flavours and experiences. I spend my spare time baking cakes and always cooking from scratch.
Film: Favourite film? It's impossible to give one answer! Latest release - The Favourite. Action - Bladerunner 2049. Romance - Amelie. Fantasy - Pan's Labyrinth. Horror - It Follows. Comedy - Easy A. Crime - Brick. Geeky pleasure - The Lord of the Rings.
Commitment: I am committed to my work and passions. Punctuality and reliability are my key values, as well as honesty. My work is more to me than making ends meet, as my work satisfaction comes from seeing my clients' succeed.
Creativity: It's widely considered that there is no such thing as true originality! However, I still look for fresh approaches to material, style and methods to help clients stand out.
Music: I listen to almost every genre of music! Classical, hip hop, metal, folk, electro... wherever my mood takes me, as I am 90% of the time listening to music. Check out my spotify and see for yourself!
Art + Architecture: I can safely say that all my passions in life come from my love of art. It's driven everything in my life and led to me becoming a photographer and graphic designer. I love to draw, to study art history and explore cities in search of awesome architecture!
Travel: I enjoy exploring new and different cultures and sampling local delicacies. A lot of my inspiration comes from places I go.
