Nice to meet you. I am Arif Samad.
A product designer based in Karachi. Currently a Lead Product Designer @ Circadia Health. Previously at Airlift Technologies. Adjunct Faculty, Interaction Design @ IVS . Adjunct Faculty, UX Design @ NUST
A self-taught Product Designer, passionate about designing digital experiences that leave a positive impact. I am a native of Karachi, Pakistan, and have a background in Marketing-Management; in which I hold a Master of Business Administration degree. I started my journey in 1999 at that time I was in Grade 9. I started my design journey as a Macromedia Flash animator, after 3 years of animation I quit and start learning Graphic and Web Design. Later on, I shifted my career to UX and visual design.
My designs have been instrumental in raising $130.45 million in funding for quick commerce, warehousing, logistics, last-mile startups, and products being used by millions across the globe.
Design is a problem-solving activity. As a designer, I feel that the perfect design not only involves visual aesthetics but even more importantly, an interface that functions well. I enjoy solving complex business problems with delightful and intuitive design solutions based on user needs and business goals.
If you think that I would be a great fit for your team as a freelance/part-time/full-time designer or if you’re a fellow designer, feel free to contact via email or LinkedIn. I’m always looking for talented people to work on projects together and to share knowledge related to design.Resume
