Javid is available for custom portraits and calligraphic paintings, on canvas or walls. He also manages Under the Radar (undertheradarto.com), a youth-led social enterprise specializing in graphic design, mural painting and screen printing, located at the LOFT Youth Centre for Social Enterprise and Innovation (loftycsei.org) in Downtown Toronto.
