Design is an area of experience, skill and knowledge which is concerned with ability to mould the environment to suit the material with external and internal needs. Wise or other wise I would say it is about understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to, and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts and experience of another to give a form of difference. Being in communication meadow, I focus and I believe in cross media platform. Until now I have worked in different Design Studios and experienced - Interface, Web, Print & Product Graphics. Design never ends and so as my explorations.
