There’s a big wide world out there just waiting to be explored. Taken in Berlin in front of the Riechstag.
Light streaming through the hold atop St Peter’s Basilica, in the Vatican. There’s something completely otherwordly about the light in the mediterranean – it’s different somehow. It behaves like a fluid, like oil drifting through water.

After launching the Aucklandia Store last month, I’ve had a lot of people ask how I design my t-shirts. Usually the conversation starts with them questioning my drawing abilities: “I’ve seen your handwriting and sketches … you’re a liar, Mr Ahmed!” (my friends are brutally honest).
I’ve been using Paper by FiftyThree to start the drafting process, following it up in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to make print-ready art. I’ve sung Paper’s praises a million times before, and will sing its praises a million times more now that I use it so intimately in my design process.
