Muid Latif (24.2.1979 – 11.4.2020)

11 April 2020, Saturday, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The world lost a colourful individual.

The nation lost a leading light.

The design community lost a fierce inspirational man.

Many lost a friend.

Muid Latif, was a Malaysian digital artist known for promoting cultural elements into his commercial and personal design work. Muid was the Project Lead for Creative Commons Malaysia. He actively promoted Free Cultural Movement and Open Collaboration. He was also the official Behance Ambassador representing Malaysia. Muid started the Digital Malaya project in 2012 and has been a great advocate for both the creative and design scene in Malaysia.

Always dapper, always original, always brave and inspiring.

  1. This is very sad news. Muid and I shared a hotel room together during the 2015 Creative Commons summit in South Korea. As many have already said, he was a ray of sunlight. Colorful, outspoken, passionate and heartwarming. He will be missed.
