A Right-Brainer

Shahril started his design career in events. This includes designing banners, system graphics and large-scale prints. Essentially, this experience garnered him a strong understanding of production: a fundamental knowledge that served him well in his position as a creative designer. Thereafter, he followed his passion and started off as a freelance graphic designer for three years, and then entered the world of advertising.


As a senior graphic designer in the agency, Shahril took on various creative challenges and opened opportunities to unconventional, enlightening and engaging projects. The creative culture nurtured his mindset and outlook – professionally. It was a colourful experience and an important part of his career path.


He then took on an offer into publishing for a leading fashion magazine. With his advertising experience, he adopted a non-conforming approach to publication and was on a constant quest for new and fresh ideas. As an Associate Art Director, Shahril also proved his leadership qualities by leading a team to churn out the magazine month after month.

Shahril’s works and credited experience are a testament of an accomplished designer. With dexterity that comes from years of industry experience coupled with a mind that seeks out the unconventional, he is an individual who sees things from two sides of the coin: the practical and the irreverent.
