Blueprint: Vertical Timeline

Sharif is a designer of many things. He has made a career of developing interactive learning for corporations, but he's best known for laser-cutting beautiful, functional products that are love letters to pop culture. He loves to take a thought, conversation or long established truth and re-imagine it on or as a product. Within a year of joining NextFab as on of its first members, in 2009 Sharif established Masters of None, a business that specialized in making urbane often tongue-in-cheek products that are useful and make people smile. In 2017 he re-imagined and relaunched Masters of None as Philadelphia Laser & Industrial Design (aka PLAID). After relaunching, Sharif opened a storefront at Cherry Street Pier. In 2019, he took over Phillylovenotes, another long-established brand started at NextFab. Through his storefront and web-shop, Sharif sells his work, a curated collection of products from other designers and custom design services.
