Hi, I'm Malik. 

I'm a New York-based designer and animator.

I'm currently a senior motion designer at Mashable, where I've been designing, animating and occasionally illustrating news-related stuff since 2017.

I was previously a motion designer at NowThis, a senior editor at Next Animation Studio (better known as “that famous Taiwanese animation company”) and was also part of a small team at Reuters that put together an award-winning app on China’s political system.
