Today we chat to Mobeen Mustappa and he tells us how pop culture inspires his work!
Who is Mobeen Mustappa and what do you do?
I’m a result driven, self motivated and resourceful professional with an ability to successfully translate desired moods, messages, concepts, and under developed ideas into imagery. Experience of working in and contributing to a creative environment alongside designers, copywriters, content strategists user, experience specialists and interactive developer… Blah Blah Blah, just a designer from Durbz that loves creating beautiful relevant things. I’m into a bit of everything these days, industrial design, graphic design, illustration and motion graphics. Been in the industry for about 10yrs, and loving every second.
How would you define your style or art?
Relevant haha! I love pop culture, so there is an influence. On the technical side, sculpting, 3d modeling and craft.
I think “Afro -meets -east -meets -west!
What inspires your work?
People, places, but most of the time it’s the little unexpected things that inspires me the most.
What are you currently working on?
I’m working on a sports fan virtual experience app which is linked to FIFA and other sports federations. Busy creating the visual language and the working mechanics for the app. I can’t give out to much info on the app, because it’s still very much in the concept phase. But early 2014 the app should be available cross-platform.
What advice would you give young creatives looking to do what you do?
Do what you love, and be passionate about it. It’s never too late to learn and change your approach.
