Saied – a perfectionist per se – making sure the smallest things have been made to perfection, has been actively involved with sounds and recordings from a very early stage. Next to many other talents, he is an inflected speech artist, having already recorded his very own Longplayer called “Adoleszenz” (Lyrics, Arrangement and SFX by him). This is also why he decided to build a small studio, when he was living back in Linz, in order to have his own space to express his creativity in many ways, that studio becoming his small little creative workshop area. Saied’s main interest and priority lies in the overall planning, the technical but also the creative aspect of any project he is involved with, but also the ability and necessity of improvisations in times where changes need to be made quickly.

I think therefore I am. I think therefore I take pictures.
Over the past several years, I have lived by these words. Anyone who knows me knows that it affects me in a deep way. That is exactly what I am trying to achieve with my photography. I want my photos to resonate inside the viewers’ mind and body. I would like to tear you away from reality for a moment and show you a different perspective of things and help you understand it.
AMOR EST vitae essentia…
Over 10 years now, I have been digging my head deep into the arts of web and graphic design, but have really been fascinated by the world of programming lately. With the work I do, my ultimate goal is to create a unique experience tailored to individuals’ needs.
I try to approach every project, with a clear and open mind combining my technical skill - set, with a unique view on the combination of colours, forms and differential positioning. I believe that a web designer’s responsibility, my responsibility, not only lies within finding the right balance between forms and functions, but create an easily navigable experience for customers. This is why I constantly try to expand my skill set in regards to the tools I use, as I believe this is the only way to satisfy and impress consumers.
Generic web design is dead - Cheers to designing the ultimate experience you will never forget!
