Hi, I'm Abbas

I specialise in illustration, graphic design and creating augmented reality filters for Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook.

a little about me

My name is Abbas; I'm a designer based in Sydney, Australia. I Specialise in creating AR filters for Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook.

I come from a design & Illustration background, and have been creating augmented reality experiences on Snapchat for a few a years now and am an Official Snapchat Lens Creator. I have worked with brands and people such as Dixie D'Amelio, Sportsbet, Absolut Juice, Sony Pictures and The United Nations.


Be happy

Dixie D'Amelio

I built a Lens to accompany Dixie D'amelio's new song called "Be Happy". It uses one of Lens Studio's new feature's which allows the user to trigger different effects depending on their body poses!



Sportsbet reached out to me and Jye Trudinger, fellow Official Lens Creator to create this mini game which was used during the 2019 election week.

Stay Home, Save Lives

United Nations

To spread the message that it's important to stay home to beat Covid-19, the UN created this Snapchat lens that encourages users to connect with others and share content from self-isolation in their homes!

Absolut Juice

Absolut Juice

To accompany the launch of Absolut Juice, me and fellow Official Lens Creator Jye Trudinger created this mini-game on Snapchat with AR Studio Poplar!

Sony pictures

Sony's Charlies Angels

Sony Pictures reached out and asked me to create a Snapchat lens to accompany the global release of the 2019 Charlies Angels movie.



I have a few years of experience creating filters on Snapchat with Lens Studio. Did you know that with Snap Camera , you can bring the magic of Lenses to your live streams and video chats on PC & Mac. The Gaming industry is continually growing, Twitch streamers have been using filters on the platform for a while now. Users are using filters for hours on end compared to seconds. Let that sink in. 


In late 2018, Instagram allowed a limited number of creators to start creating AR effects for the platform with Spark AR. In 2019 we also seen several filters start viral trends. Brands can benefit from using AR on the platform in 2020. The right AR design around a product launch or campaign can make your message stand out.


Augmented reality has been used on the platform for several years now. There are features like "Hand tracking" which have yet to reach Instagram. Facebook will always be a unique platform for its unique audience.
