Junaid ur Rehman
This is Junaid-ur-Rehman presenting his Success Story. My Family is a resident of Chichawatni, a city located in Southern Punjab. My family shifted to Dubai many years ago and I spent my childhood there. We are four siblings including Two Brothers and Two Sisters. My Father continued our Family Business that is Goldsmith that has been overtaken by my elder brother now.
I completed my primary & secondary years of education from Dubai. For further studies, I moved back to Pakistan. After completing my Intermediate in Computer Sciences from Chichawatni, I shifted to Lahore to do my Diploma in Interior Design as I was not in the mood of running my family business of goldsmith. I had the urge to do something different, unique and creative. My father was against this decision, he wanted me to pursue my studies in some other field and later join in the family business. But with the continuous support of my elder brother and screening different Design Institutes, I started my Diploma in Interior Design at STEP Institute of Art, Design & Management and later converted that Diploma into a Bachelor Degree Programme. I ended up as a Qualified Bachelors in Interior Design, Scoring Highest Grades in the History of my Institute.
- Talking about my Career I started working as a Freelancer during my Studies. After that, I was engaged in various projects like Residential, Commercial, Hospitality, and Landscaping & Set Designing at Different TV Channels. I have worked as a Concept designer at Aertex Designs & HZ Concepts. Other than that I have worked as Set Design Supervisor at ATV/Apus/Alit Entertainment Channel, Assistant Production Designer at Waqt News Channel, Senior Interior Designer at Akin Productions and Model Coordinator at Coven Studios. Currently, I am working as Programme Manager and Internal Verifier for the Art & Design Department at STEP Institute of Art, Design & Management. I am thankful to my Institute and my Teachers for creating an Interior Designer out of me and my Family & Friends for encouraging me throughout my educational and practical tenure.
