"Make things better by making better things."

Assalamualaikum. I'm Maharis Azman (aka Ari), a Business Design & Brand Innovation consultant from the awesomely tropical Malaysia.

Here's some quick facts about me:

  • My wife & I run Halal Chinese Confinement Food, a digital health & food delivery startup.
  • We also take on limited client work at The Makmal, the design & innovation arm of Superhumans.
  • Prior to this, I was a digital-based Creative Director at network creative agencies such as Ogilvy, TBWA, FCB and TribalDDB.
  • I've led industry-leading work and award-winning teams partnering brands like Volkswagen Malaysia, Honda Malaysia, Maybank2u Malaysia & Singapore, Fonterra, Mister Potato, Telekom Malaysia.
  • I began designing interactive websites in 1998. Became an advocate for Web Accessibilty & Standards by the mid-2000s. Have been helping brands succeed in the digital economy ever since.
  • More recently...
  • I survived brain tumour in 2021. I've since adapted to working with low vision. Buy a t-shirt ("Takkan Gabra" release soon) to donate to others affected by visual impairment.
