Ali Jafri : Creative Director
Going back to the turn the of the century, I emerged as a communication artist with a penchant for semiotics!
I combine my creative experiences from the toy industry, as a business owner, a musician and in television as a commercial producer.
Starting out in the Dot-Com Boom with IPIX producing virtual tours, I have ventured through the colourful creative industry wearing many “hats”. This wealth of experience reflects the versatility of my skill set. My experience has taught me the importance of communication and the role of ’creative’ in the marketing scope. I have successfully lead many projects involving TV, video, music, photography, graphics, marketing communications and public relations. I also front an independent band called ARIEL (since 1995). Addicted to the creative process, evoking a response is what I like to do. It all comes back to communication, expression and meaning. It’s why I love applied semiotics*!
*The study of signs and symbols, especially as a means of language or communication.
