HIS STORY


Jamirul was involved in a road traffic accident several years ago which left him with spinal cord injuries that affected his mobility. When he was undergoing therapy sessions at SPD’s Transition to Employment programme, he discovered his love for art, particularly in illustration, sketching and water-colouring.

Today, Jamirul is the designer of SPD’s new range of Birthday and Thank You cards. Seeing the freshly-printed cards for the first time, he shared, “This project was definitely a good challenge to me as I’m new to creating artwork digitally. I am always looking to improve so I’m definitely excited and hopeful for more of such projects or creative collaborations with other designers and artists.”

Jamirul’s artworks were chosen for a line of customised tote bags for Ernst & Young’s Dinner & Dance (D&D) event themed, “Myths Untold” in 2018.
