Hi there. My name is Akber Ahmed and I am an illustrator who currently lives in Berlin, Germany.

I am deeply inspired by history and pop culture. As part of the #36DaysOfType challenge, I combined the number of each decade with one thing that defined it. Through the evolution of culture over each decade, we can trace our steps back in time. Enjoy!
