I was born and raised in Bangalore, India. Ever since I can remember I've been either drawing or messing around in coreldraw & photoshop. After graduating high school I decided to study Fine Arts as my passion to design.
I had a life changing experience working for a Retail Manufacturing company as a creative designer. The constant thrill of problem solving and the mechanics around design, being either product, graphic or visual merchandising immediately converted my hobby into a real passion and I decided to make Design my profession.
I've learned about the whole spectrum of design and design management. From print to motion to prototyping and combined it with the design knowledge I gained at the various portfolios held by me across verticals at the jobs I've held. It's been the best decision I've made and I can't wait to start helping other people with the knowledge I acquired.
I have worked extensively with Dalziel and Pow who are an integrated design consultancy firm in London to develop an entire look and feel of a Brand and its sub-brands and bespoke it to suit the Indian Retail conditions. It was a broad based exercise which included the look and feel of (corporate, brand, and retail structuring) this took several months to put in place this was jointly executed with Technopak Consultants.
Please feel free to take a look at my resumé.
I would like to think of myself as a highly creative individual, original, intuitive and perceptive. I would like to find myself designing, packaging, presenting, marketing and selling my own ideas and products to any company which does hire me in the future. In a nut-shell. "A highly skilled, talented designer, outstanding communicator and knowledgeable, intelligent, business-savvy professional”.
Besides my main Job Description I also contribute and bring my design skills and ideas to certain segments of society that have worthy causes attached to it, some which are:
