    This is what inspired my designs.
  • The Postcard.
  • The Brief on The Postcard.
  • The Grid:
    I found my grid in the architectural plan of the main structure of the Taj Mahal. It was an interesting form, and I thought it would be a good idea.
  • The Hard Work:
    Once these were done I began vectorising the selected ones and worked on those for over a month. I tweaked and re-tweaked designs to obtain the perfect letter forms. Here’s where all my research about devnagari script helped. One has to have a good understanding about the original shapes of each letter form to be able to distort them to perfection.
  • The Devnagari Font.
  • Its Latin Counterpart.
    [This  font was so well received by everyone around, I decided to step it up a notch and design a matching Latin script ]
  • The Magic Poster:
    The repitition of each number symbol is directly proportionate to its value.
  • The Ring Stamps.
  • The 3D Poster:
    This poster becomes an abstract tear-&-fold  paper model of the Taj Mahal.
  • This is what the poster looks liek from behind.
  • A visual demo.
  • The Wondrous Frame.
  • The Zaftig Bag #1
  • The Zaftig Bag #2
  • Stylised Numericals.
  • The Baronial Jewels.
  • This is a concept sheet for an idea for a cafe and its chair.
    [work in progress]
     
    I envisioned a structure to be built near the Taj Mahal that would be both a café as well as a souvenir store. I think it would work well, keeping in mind the number of tourist that visit the monument every day.
