NICE TO MEET YOU

I'm Dawood — a London-based designer fascinated by the connection between design, tech and human behaviour. I specialise in brand and visual design.

Incase you wanted to know a little more about me, get comfy and check out my 'interview' below:

How do you approach design work?

My approach to design work is rooted in research, strategy and story-telling with a focus on delivering functional and aesthetically-pleasing design solutions.

What type of projects have you worked on during your time as a designer?

With almost a decade of design experience under my belt, I've accumulated an impressive portfolio of work covering branding, visual identities, key art, infographics, visual design and UX. You could say I am an integrated designer.

What kind of environments have you worked in and what did you like the most about working there?

I've mostly worked within agency environments. Fast-paced, lots of multi-tasking and plenty of responsibility. It can be hectic and full-on at times but they have gifted me with many invaluable opportunities including collaborating with talented peers and clients at the top of their game, to being immersed in every stage of the design process.

What software do you use for design work/planning your workload?

Adobe CC (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign), Figma, Framer and Google Workspace for project management.

What type of clients have you worked with?

I've worked with local independents to world-renowned brands including Netflix. I couldn't tell you which type of client I prefer, but one thing I can say is no matter how big or small the client, one thing remains the same: my appetite and focus for tackling creative problems.

Why do you like design?

I've always had a creative personality and 'eye for design'. Whenever I've had an idea, I'd want to explore it and there's no better way than starting with paper with pen. I enjoy looking at problems and using my skills and abilities to solve them from a design perspective. There's just something rewarding about it.
