Senior Management Certificate, BCIT
Amer oversees our creative team, and is responsible for the ideation, implementation, and direction of our design solutions, from conception to completion.
With an 11-year professional track record spanning large corporations, small businesses, start-ups, and creative agencies, Amer has extensive knowledge and experience in visual communication and information architecture. He understands the importance of collaborative processes, having worked with other designers and developers on many interactive interfaces for web and native apps, and on countless online, on-screen, and print campaigns relating to public health, education, and community projects.
Recognizing the importance of identifying knowledge gaps in order to deliver effective knowledge translation and communications, Amer works with each of our teams, from research to communications to design and development, and with our clients to ensure robust, integrated communications solutions that are the result of idea sharing and a comprehensive, iterative process. For Amer, each project begins and ends with ensuring empathy, integrity, and putting the user’s needs first.
Fun facts about Amer: if he were an animal, he’d be a house cat; he has eaten the same salad kit for lunch for the past five years; and has never seen an episode of Game of Thrones.
Having worked with many reputable organizations, including CBC Radio-Canada and Kashoo Inc., Amer has perfected the process of researching and developing design solutions, and shares this knowledge with emerging designers by teaching user experience (UX) design courses at Vancouver’s RED Academy.
He holds a BA in Design from Concordia University, a Diploma in Studio Arts from Langara College, and a Senior Management Certificate from BCIT.
