About Me

Hi, My name is Alyas Ghaffar, I am freelance Animator and Designer from the UK. I graduated with a Bachelor of Design degree in Design & Digital Arts from Robert Gordon University where I was taught about many different aspects of the digital media world. I learned a lot about many different styles and techniques using various programs such as Adobe Flash, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, and 3D Max. I also gained a lot of knowledge in the appropriate way to conduct myself when dealing with certain aspects in the professional world of design, I learned that it is important to research and investigate the work of different Designers and Design consultancies and I am very skilled in presenting my work to clients in a very professional and polite manner.

My biggest passion is Animating and I enjoy Experimenting with many different styles in my designs, some of these styles include Retro, Urban, and Grunge. I also enjoy testing out new styles in and I am very interested in incorporating new ideas into my work, so if you have any ideas you would like me to try out please contact me.

I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
