About

Hello, I'm Alif! A firm believer of the saying 'DIY or Die', always embedding a touch of craft in everything I create.


A Graphic Designer based in Singapore. Started my creative journey in 2014 and I have been exploring and creating ever since. Always haunted by my past projects as I feel that the best ideas always come up after I wrap a project.

My works primarily range from print to digital. Heavy on publication as I enjoy the process of making a book or a magazine. I run a self-initiated zine called Superrandom Zines, where I design, print and assemble the zines for swaps.

I take photos for fun, both digitally and analog. Sharing the stories on how I frame the world. This makes me familiar with video and photo production, manipulating lights, composition and textures to create the desired mise-en-scene for a project.

DIY culture is in my blood. I DIY everything from binding my books, to making my own bags and even mending my own clothes. I started a label called UNLBD Handcrafted Goods, where I make small leather products, bags and restore goods. Expanding further into creating my own prints for tote bags and T-shirts.
