Arif Sheikh

Web & Graphics Designer with over 15 years of experience

I am a highly versatile and creative media designer with a talent for print and web design. I am hard working, dedicated and self motivated. I work well as part of a team and as an individual using my own initiative. I am always keen to learn, with good communication skills and the ability to produce high quality work under pressure to meet deadlines. I have a wealth of experience to work on cross platforms; Windows and Mac OS.

During my spare time I like to surf the internet for inspiration and learning the latest design trends and experiment with new media.
