Get To Know Me
Hi there! Welcome to my website. My name is Nafisa Jiwani. I am a graphic and web designer based in Toronto, Ontario. I didn't always know I wanted to be in this field. It took me some time to figure out that this is what I am really passionate about. My interest in computer technology surfaced when I was first introduced to graphics and animation in grade 11. At the time, I hadn't been exposed to it enough to be able to make a decision about my future career path. My creativity, however, has always been one of my most predominant traits. I have always been involved in creative activities such as choreographing dances, designing clothes for fashion shows, or applying henna designs.
I always knew I wanted to be in a field where I could express my creativity but my parents were not too keen on the idea. So I ended up doing a Bachelor's degree at the University of Waterloo instead. Once I graduated, I was presented an opportunity to design my own wedding invitations which peaked my interest in graphic design once again. I decided to go back to school for graphic design. I figured it was the perfect way to combine my love of technology with my creativity. A few years later, I designed a website for a friend and I was surprised to find how enchanted I was with coding. Once again, I decided to go back to school, this time for web design. Now I am proficient in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, HTML5, CSS3 and Wordpress. I find that people are always looking for their dream job - I have found that job which makes me that much more dedicated to the work I do.
Oh did I mention that I'm also a perfectionist? So you're guaranteed that my designs for you will be spot on. Don't believe me? Take a look at my graphics portfolio and web portfolio pages on this website. I hope you enjoy!
