Salih Abdul-Karim

Design Lead
Airbnb

My name is Salih Abdul-Karim. I'm a Design Lead at Airbnb focusing on motion and animation. Between 2003 and 2012 I designed and animated commercials at various design shops, agencies and broadcast networks in New York city. After moving to San Francisco in 2012 I spent almost three years at Square as a motion graphics designer on their video team doing short form animations and compositing for live action commercials. Since 2015 I've been at Airbnb collaborating with various teams using motion and animation to solve product challenges. I also collaborate very closely with our DLS (Design Language System) team to define principles as well as grow and maintain the system.
