I love that my job allows me to speak graphically.

Zehra’s got a zest for creative challenges others do not have. She uses her artistic eye and astute strategic understanding to translate client visions into designs that speak for themselves. Day to day, Zehra sees the design process through, from concept to completion, working closely with Project Management, Technology and Strategy teams. Shes uses her broad background in the creative industry to bring a wealth of print and interactive design experience to CHIEF—including expertise in building comprehensive visual systems and developing core brand elements, including essence, voice and identity.

Zehra earned a BFA in Graphic Design from The Art Institute of Washington.


Early years were in Pakistan—MD is home.
