Asif Naqvi

I’m ambitious for great work and eager to make a difference by being fully aware of the creative challenges, technical constraints and cross-media concerns. I have led, managed and mentored multi-disciplinary teams across visual design, UX, front/backend development, and content production.

Having professionally raised in start-up culture and being part of the digital revolution right from its infancy, I have the ability to challenge status quo to drive change.

I'm presently working as an independent consultant, having worked under various roles from Team Lead to Creative Director, and from Head of Design to Head of Digital Media. I have also been involved in setting up or scaling in-house design, development and production capabilities to meet business objectives.

I'm also an Associate member of the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences - an organization overseeing highly acclaimed Webby Awards. I have been part of the Webby Awards judging team since 2016. I also had the opportunity to be part of the Nordic Startup Awards Jury in 2015.

Besides, I am a traveler, photographer, laid-back adventurer, somewhat gadget freak, and a husband and father of two. I also ran a creative and inspiration blog called LivingDesign.info - dedicated to design and life and everything in-between.
