Proposals Graphic Designer
Azaan holds a specialized Hon. BA degree in architecture with a minor in visual studies from the University of Toronto. Born and raised in Kenya, he is inspired by vernacular building practices that utilize notions of sustainability and parametricism. Azaan has an avid passion for graphic design and has been freelancing for different companies' brands around the world since 2014. Marrying the two fields, he is excited to work as the 'Proposals Graphic Designer.'
Azaan has interned at various Architectural firms and has accumulated a wealth of global experience - from working on-site in Kenya on a low-income housing project, to collaborating with an architectural + development firm based in London and Lisbon. After graduating, he was a researcher and designer for a Humanitarian Architectural firm in the United States, and a graphic designer at UN-Habitat in the Urban Future Cities Program.
With an ambition to focus on the storytelling ability of architecture and design, Azaan hopes to use graphic design as an anecdotal mouthpiece to bring architecture to life. He desires to develop his visualization and representational ability as a graphic designer at SVN.
