“Tariq has a solid understanding of the creative aspects of a project and knows how to get to a solution quickly.

He definitely has talent and can bring a new perspective to any project by challenging conventional thinking in attempts to find even better solutions.
He also guides his creative team to try new ways to create their designs and is well-versed in the latest design tools.

Tariq has definitely added to our creative efforts here at BioLab by using his life experience and years of working in a variety of industries to craft pieces that meet our customer needs.”

"As Creative Manager over photography, I’m always looking for talent that can help my team take it to the next level. Once we brought Tariq in and explained to him what we were looking for, who the studios were, and the challenges we were facing in the categories he would be responsible for, Tariq went to work designing sets (great illustrations that we were able to scan in our layouts prior to the photos coming). His ability to draw and communicate with the studios meant we had many images come back looking uncannily like the sketches he drew.

Tariq’s talent and project management really shined when he managed a photo shoot for over 140 photos, 30+ of them were sets, in just three and a half weeks. He worked closely with our Production Supervisors, Creative Supervisors and the studios to not only get the work done on time, but to produce some of the best photography for doors and windows we have produced as a company.

It’s always been a pleasure to work with Tariq. He takes direction well, gives direction well, and well, just does a superb job in pushing the work and getting result."

"Years ago, our software company needed a website overhaul but we wanted to maintain much of the control over the copy and direction.

We decided that our best course was to work with a freelance graphic designer. Tariq Hassan stepped in. He was able to understand our business needs and quickly turn our ideas into great concepts.

Tariq has earned my respect and trust. I would highly recommend him for any project you have."
