— HI, I'M ABIDUR CHOWDHURY.
I'm a London based designer who loves to solve problems and learn new things. I love creating innovative products people can't bear to be without, and joyful experiences that drive change.
I was born in East London and raised on south coast of England before graduating with a first class honours from Loughborough University’s incredibly competitive Product Design program. I’ve been fortunate to work in both consulting and entrepreneurial environments, alongside some brilliant minds creating innovative solutions for outstanding clients in multi-national companies and disruptive start-ups.
When I'm not designing or sketching I like to play the ukulele, ride my bike, photograph the world around me and go rock climbing. I find my hobbies help to keep me creative by being additional outlets and they often lead to moments of inspiration.
I'm always looking for exciting work; from freelance opportunities to working for innovative companies so feel free to get in touch even just to say Hi! I love receiving e-mails!
I also keep a very active Instagram account with a following of over 49,000 people as my design journal, so make sure you have a look at that too for some fresh work!
