Hey!

I'm Ali, a digital designer & front-end developer based in Belfast.

I have over 5 years experience as a multi-disciplinary designer who thrives in fast-paced, collaborative environments. I have worked for digital agencies and studios on projects ranging from print design, web & mobile applications to hardware design.

This has afforded me the opportunity to work amongst some very talented people at both large and small companies including UTV, Property Pal, The Manual, E-Harmony, MailChimp & Brewbot. Projects that allow me to learn something new and feed my curiosity are what fuel my passion for design, I flourish on learning new skills as I work, learning from and sharing my knowledge with colleagues.

I studied 3D Design in Glasgow at the Rennie Macintosh School of Art & Design specialising in Ceramics, which then led me to returning to Belfast to further my education in Interactive Multimedia Design at University of Ulster.

I have been a freelance designer & front-end developer for several years throughout my career however I have been freelancing full time for the past two years. If you would like to work with me please get in touch for a chat.
