about.

I'm Ali, a product designer based in Stockholm, originally from Iraq and Sweden. Led by curiosity, instinct and passion for experimentation I am dedicated to transform ideas into reality. I'm intrigued by projects that bridge the realms of art, design and technology with people and sustainability in mind.
