Hi, I'm Naz.

I'm a digital designer, and founder of Weightshift, a design consultancy in San Francisco, CA. I also advise start-ups and assist with product vision and design direction.

Recently, I worked with Xero to design and develop an award-winning iOS app, called TaxTouch that helps freelancers and independents manage their expenses, and file their taxes. Apple featured it in the iTunes store. about.me relaunched after several months of close collaboration with their team to reconceptualize and reinvigorate the site and product. You can read about it on The Verge. The internal @gov team of long-standing client Twitter looked to Weightshift again to design and develop custom applications for TV display to be used during election cycles.

I was fortunate to share printed space with some of the best designers in the business today, in Khoi Vinh's book on how digital designers got their start, "How They Got There." You can get it here.

While not regular, I've spoken about design at Brooklyn Beta, Designer Fund's Bridge program, SXSW (multiple times), AIGA, and for Under Consideration.

Murders&Mysteries is my long-time musical outlet. You can find the first release, It's All In Our Histories on the usual services: Bandcamp, iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, etc.


I do the Twitter thing, the Instagram thing, and have been writing at Medium. I'm also on that professional networking thing, LinkedIn.
