Profile - About Me

Karim Abdelwahab

Hey, I’m Karim Nice to meet you. I enjoy making applications and websites that are fun to use and beautiful to look at. I have worked for companies such as Saudi Arabian Airlines, Mitsubishi Motors “Masria”, Isis Travel, Method, Commodore Travel and various other organisations.

I know and understand the elements and principles of design and I am able to use them to create fun and usable interfaces as well as meaningful ones. I have an excellent working knowledge of the Adobe Suite.

I love hearing from people for pretty much any reason. I give a lot of free advise so please feel free to contact me on any subject matter, but please be patient as I can sometimes be a hard guy to get a hold of depending on what is going on with my real life away from the computer world – yes, I like to think that I still have some real world social life going on.

What I can do.
Mobile Application

Turning your brilliant idea into a real mobile application with an affordable price.

    • “I had been using a company who claimed to design a banner in 3 days. So i thought that’s great! after I’ve placed an order of 2 banners i waited for 10 days and I still had not seen a single design, just a bunch of emails saying “sorry,one more day.” They were killing my marketing schedule. While waiting for this order I contacted simplyhire.me and placed the exact same 2 banner order. After 33 hours I had my 2 banners. They look great and they cost me less than the previous company and most important i got back up and running with my marketing schedule. ” - Commodore Travel
