UI/UX Interaction Design Expert + Freelancer

I started my Freelancing Career just 8 years ago and learned everything the hard way myself. I went from scratch to end up working for FORTUNE 500 companies like INTEL, PANASONIC and Coca Cola.

In just 1 years of Serious UI Designing, I made my place on DRIBBBLE
Working with Art Directors from Coca Cola and Project Managers from UK, I learned a lot in short period of time.

Worked from App Icon Design to App UI Design, from wire-frames, prototypes and Mockups Design. I have a hunger of perfecting User Interface from all aspects
I am multi-talented person who have won One Gold Medal, won a nationwide Poster Design competition from PANASONIC and won many Landing Page design contests.

Worked with Clients all over the world mostly from USA, Australia, UK, and United Arab Emirates while learning a lot on how to deal with clients while freelancing and how to present your work to them

Although I started as a UI Designer 6 years ago but I am playing with Photoshop since year 2002

My ultimate aim is to make more Awesome UI Designers and ease the pain of learning from new comers in this field of UI Design
