Im Ashif Thekkil. Ever since I was younger I was creative and wanted to follow this direction in life, When I was 15 I had the passion in digitaldesigning.
Knowing this I was able to tailor my education around what I wanted to become. After schools I studied art and design. I went to Arena Multimedia, Calicut, India and studied Multimedia Arts. This 2 years of my life was wonderful.
Multimedia Arts in Arena Multimedia is a car crash between two vehicles travelling at extraordinary speeds that takes 2 years to happen. In one car are internationally recognised Computer Graphix Specialists able to teach 'Graphix Softwares & Tools' and their application on Visual Media. In the other are artists, theorists and designers who are determined to reinvent how art, language and human beings are represented in the 21st century. Miraculously everyone walks away from the crash unscarred, and from the wreckage emerges a software artist able to operate at an exceptionally creative level in both corporate and cultural industries.
So I knew I wanted a career in the creative industries.. during 'Arena' I started creating digital art, and by the time I had finished I had quite a few artworks to show, so I set up a website to showcase these.
I was having a parttime job in Kerala, India working at an agency. Later I moved to another firm which was an Graphix Educational Institute, where I the Chief Graphix Instructor, and while I was here I set up with a self-developed Profile and started to do some freelance works from Design persons and agencies.
As you can imagine I was super busy, I was getting more freelance projects so I decided to quit my Chief Graphix Instructor job and take up freelance full time.Then I moved to a IT company in Abu Dhabi, capital of UAE - this is where I grew up(I was in Abu Dhabi for almost 2 years), although I loved Abu Dhabi I thought this was not the place that suits my lifestyle. Then I returned to India continued with my Freelance work for almost one year!
Now Iam in Jeddah, Saudia Arabia, working as Web & Graphic Designer in an advertising company .I am planning to develop my thoughts and creativity with a highly professional team, where I can utilize my creativity and skills to a high end.
Digital Designing is my passion........
