‘I wouldn’t say I’m fearless, I just haven’t found anything that I’m scared of’ claims Birmingham based graphic design student Nasir Ali. Influenced by the creations of the revoluntionary designer Johnny Hardstaff and the futuristic Mila Blackman, Nasir designs bold digital works that investigate crime and our CCTV culture, with an aim to demonstrate a different view of his home city. A fan of horror novels and films, Nasir credits them for opening up his imagination, and for allowing him to explore the world in a more intriguing light. Nasir also blames books for his particular interest in layout and typography. Open to new ideas, he enjoys creating work that makes everyday information exciting. In his spare time he is a typical lad, who enjoys sports and different kinds of music, in particular Rap and R’n B. Despite his love for the urban and intrepid side of life, Nasir admits that he has one fear. ‘I don’t like change’ he concedes. Which ensures he will stay devoted to his creative interests and graphic livelihood for years to come.
