Hey What's up?
I'm Rubaitul Azad
A self-trained guy born and raised in the world’s largest Militarized Zone, was always passionate about creating beautiful and memorable design’s and user experience. I love to convert an imaginative idea into reality. I design and build products for Startups, Enterprises, Healthcare companies, Mobility, Retails, Logistics, Education and Automotive.
MY CAREER JOURNEY
Let’s Get Into The Time Machine And Travel To 2012
Beginning of my developer and designing career. As I told you people, I’m the laziest person ever when it comes to studying. I love designing since I was a small kid. I’m just passionately mad about designing and coding. Yep guys, I know I’m being overboard here but that’s how it is. I used to watch online video lectures about coding and I still am because every day new things come up and we all should be ready for the improvements.
I won’t say that studying is bad but what my point is and always will be is that “Listen to your heart and mind together” and make decisions wisely, because at the end what matters is how happy and content, you’re with yourself and with your work. I believe that the enjoyment and madness for work must reflect on our faces!
OKAY, LET'S GET INTO YEAR 2014
The Time When I Started Freelancing
My journey as freelancer was not something that I’ve ever thought about. Yes, I was into designing and coding but I never thought it’ll come out so beautifully. I worked on resolutions most of the time which later became birthcoder.com
Learning programming, designing and coding was a mixed feeling for me- at times I used to stress myself out, at times it was kind of fun but overall it was worth learning!
My first client as a freelancer was a friend of mine. We met on december 9, 2014 and at that point of time she was so confused about the website for her tour and travels agency namely Miftaah Groups. Her problem was of course resolved by me and for me it was really the biggest beginning of my career.
THEN CAME YEAR 2016
Worked With 12+ Brands
Learning and growing phase still continued, after almost 4 years of professional working experience. I started my Journey as a Full-time Freelancer. It was really a challenging task for me, I had gone through ups and down in my Professional Career but the fire of passion is still ignited in me and I successfully worked with few renowned Brands from Kashmir Valley.
My Freelancing Journey has been a roller coaster, sprinkled with lots of surprises, few tablespoons of difficulties, and a bowl full of success with a good dose of anxiety and a huge learning curve. These were actually the ingredients that helped me to make my perfect dish- FREELANCING.
GOT AN OPPORTUNITY
To Work With IT Company Based In Srinagar
I started working as a Senior UX/UI , Web and WordPress Developer at IT company based in Srinagar Kashmir , it was indeed a very good working experience which is still going on because I’m still a part of that company. People, here are very friendly and the work atmosphere is good too. Initially, I worked as a Freelancer on different projects in this company. All I can say is that, I’ve grown into the best version of myself.
#YEAR 2018 TO 2020
I MADE SOME WAVES
I Was Happy To See Myself Growing And Glowing, Lol, Yes Glowing.
Success should reflect on your face, so yep I was glowing too. I planned to build up a Portfolio of nearly twenty to thirty projects. I felt really good about how my work was going on. I used to design Websites and Apps for different clients. And now I was having my own client pool.
I’m a firm believer that if you love something, no one can ever stop you from doing anything. For me, true essence of success comes from giving more than clients expectations. It means keeping an eye on all the minute details within the design and creating something wonderful and that wonderful should make sense for both the designers and the clients.
Okay, guys! did I share with you all that 2020 is a big success for me, a very well known and reputable Company namely Gigzoe (formerly- Wiz Counsel) hired me and I made their official blog. It really is a remarkable success for me to get hired by the most reputable company in India. I’m glad that they chose me!
This is not the end of my Journey. I’ll come back and share with you people amazing things that you’ll love to read.
Thanks and Good luck Readers!

#YEAR 2021 TO 2022
I QUITE MY JOB
In July 2022 I quit my job to become full time freelancer.
This decision was not an easy one, but after careful consideration I decided that it was the best thing for me. I enjoyed my job, but I didn’t feel like it was my true calling. I also didn’t want to be tied down to one place or one company. I wanted the freedom to work from anywhere in the world and to be my own boss.
So, in 2022 I became a full-time freelancer. It was a scary transition at first, but I quickly adapted and found that I loved the freedom and flexibility that came with it. I was able to work from home, or from anywhere else I wanted, and I didn’t have to answer to anyone but myself. It was liberating and empowering, and I quickly became successful in my new career.
I’ve now been freelancing for 10 years, and I can’t imagine ever going back to a traditional job. I’m grateful that I made the decision to become a freelancer, and I would recommend it to anyone who is considering it. It’s a great way to make a living, and it’s something that I’m passionate about.
I GOT 10M+ VIEWS
In 2022, I crossed 10 Million plus views on Unsplash sharing my 3D design
In 2022, I crossed 10 Million plus views on Unsplash sharing my 3D design and also on pexels I crossed 4 Million lakh plus views on my home studio pictures. It was a great feeling to see that people appreciated my work and it motivated me to keep going and I was able to get my work in front of a lot of people and make a good living doing what I love.
It feels surreal and I am truly humbled. I hope that my work can continue to inspire and help others, in whatever small way, to make a difference in their own lives. This was a great opportunity to learn and grow as a designer. I’m grateful for everything that I was able to achieve in 2022.
