Hello there, I am Mustafa Sheikh, an academically trained visual artist and art director based in Dubai. I have been working commercially as a Senior graphic and web designer for past 8 years.

During my 8 years career I have worked in Middle East and South Asia as a fulltime in-house desginer, both agency and client-side. During this time I have designed and directed large scale Websites, News portals, E-Commerce stores, Marketing campaigns, 360° Branding, Identity design systems and Retail Apparel.

As a multi disciplinary artist, a true renaissance man, I never limited myself to one medium. Besides design I have worked a freelance photographer and DOP for brands like Volkswagen, Lincoln, Dubai tourism, Sharjah tourism and more.

From the links above you can check out my commercial work portfolios for design and photography.
