graphic designer

Hi, I’m Adila, a designer, photographer, artist, and a boundary-breaker.

My life's unique journey has deeply influenced both who I am and my design approach. Born in Afghanistan, raised in Pakistan, and educated in India, I made my way to the United States in 2014 to chase my dream of becoming an exceptional designer. Now, as a fully eligible professional in the US, I'm ready to bring my international perspective to your creative projects.

I earned my Bachelor's degree in digital media back in 2018. Later, in 2022, I completed a rewarding two-year program at the Portfolio Center, based in Atlanta as part of the Miami Ad School.

My creative work spans various realms—motion graphics, digital brand campaigns, package and logo design, print projects, and photography. Proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, and InDesign, with a basic grasp of Figma, I'm not just about tools. I thrive on clear communication and collaborating enthusiastically within teams.

Working alongside fellow creatives to brainstorm fresh ideas that allow clients to share their brand stories is what truly excites me. Let's create together!
