We caught up with Asad from creative agency Founded who talks about his inspirations, experiences and a very large moustache.

Asad Shaykh is a planner at Founded. After being a client for 4 years, he had a change of heart, succumbed to the dark side and did an MA in planning. He’s never looked back. His past experience spans data design, insight mining and brand management, across 3 continents. At Founded, he’s worked on TripAdvisor, Yazoo, Whirlpool, Logitech and BMI.

Legend has it that he was born with that moustache.

What was your first ever job?

My first job was at my alma mater’s book store. I was in charge of arranging books and CDs, both of which are about to go extinct in the near future. By the time someone else asks me this question, I’ll probably have to say that I started out in antiques.
