Hi, I am Tarek Ziane and design is my whole life.
raphic design, in all forms and new technologies, is my passion. I am a web, multimedia and graphic designer.
After studying Computer Science in Algeria, I was given the opportunity to explore my graphic designing skills. I then started working in several agencies, big and small, as a web designer. The rich experience I attained from working at other agencies led me to start up my own agency, ZTA Design, which I was running for about 5 years (2007-2011). Unable to resist the call of international experience, I left to Dubai to start on a new adventure.
Currently residing and working in Dubai, I continue my career with the same principles that have brought me success so far. My multi-lingual abilities and fluency in Arabic, English and French have opened a lot of doors and given me many opportunities.
Areas of Expertise
I mainly use Adobe CC tools (Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, After Effects, Flash, Audition…). Also, I am proficient in other softwares such as Autodesk Sketchbook, and Toon Boom 2D animation…
The web is constantly changing; it is safe to say that it is revolutionizing with the advent of HTML5 and CSS3, just to name a few. A good web designer sleeps with his eyes open!
I enjoy photography and wish I had more time to explore my skills. I often use my Nikon D90 to provide a personal touch to my work (ex. the cover photo of my site). I also use a Wacom Intuos 3, which is an incredibly effective and useful tool.
