My recent favorite quote
“A line is dot that went for a walk”
~ Paul Klee

I am a person full of thoughts, curiosity & enthusiasm.
Design to me is thinking made visual.
I communicate effectively and can prove to be a good project leader.
I enjoy learning new languages. Similarly I experiment, mix & fuse to craft a unique design language that sets a new standard.
With an eye for details - I like to travel, experience new cultures and believe that design is more about observing the world around us. I am a kettle/tea pot collector.
I would like to choose projects that may be experimental, interactive, narrative or may include logo design, motion graphics, image making, visual language or something in between.
My current portfolio is built in Branding & Packaging design for FMCG companies. I take-up innovation projects and work from building concept cards, FGD on design base qualitative research, branding Logo design, 2D & 3D packaging concepts to final product design.
I am always excited about the challenge, trying to do something new.
