I am Mohsin Maredia (a.k.a Mohsin Fancy) a freelance graphic designer & website designer, currently based in Calgary, AB, Canada.

Specialize in the fields of corporate identity design, website design, print design, promotional design and search engine optimization. I have the multitude of experience, gained from my first freelance project till to date.
Initially, I started working as a designer in my community institutions for few years. Where I used to design flyers, promotion materials, and event-related designs. From that time I started working as a freelance graphic designer and involved in many different graphic and website design projects.
During my studies, I did my internship with Lowe and Rauf & Sabium Technologies.
After graduation, I joined Lowe and Rauf as an Art Director. Although I was only with Lowe and Rauf for five months, it was fruitful and learning experience for me. It was a great privilege to have the opportunity to work with world’s most valuable brands such as Vim, Knorr, Lifebuoy, Johnsons & Johnsons, Surf Excel and Close Up. Although this was a full-time job, I still managed to do freelance design on the side during this time.
I worked with Seven Dot Packages for more than two years and continued my freelance projects. I managed to work with many clients locally in Karachi such as (HBL, GetzPharma, KVTC, The Vision Factor, Success Factor, Ginsoy, Wah Brands and much more) along with international client via freelancing platforms.
Moved to Canada in late 2013 and started working with Infinitmind Communications / Printwise as Art Director. Currently, I am working for Kayak Online Marketing as Visual Designer and Web Developer and still work as a freelance graphic/website designer.
Completed my secondary school and high school majoring in Science and Engineering respectively. During vacations, I did some certification courses in 3D Studio Max, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Dreamweaver and Basic HTML from community-based institutions.
After, I joined Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture (IVS), one of the renowned and finest art schools in Pakistan. I finished my Bachelor’s degree in design with a distinction in a thesis project. The project was based on the Map System of Karachi, which includes tradition and digital map solution for the city of Karachi. Faculty and visitors highly appreciated the project during the IVS Degree Show 2010.
