After graduating from the Faculty of Fine Arts, M.S. University of Baroda in 2007 I joined Grandmother India, a multi-disciplinary design firm in Bombay. Almost a year later I find myself working at Tsk Design in Bangalore where I’m currently employed. I always have had a fascination for the city of Bangalore and wanted to return back once I finished my internship at an advertising agency. I yearn for quieter environs and a more stimulating atmosphere which I find conducive for quality work.
A major part of my schooling was in Kodaikanal, a quaint little hill-station in Tamil Nadu, which I grew so accustomed to that I kept looking for its shadows and charms in every place that I went to. And Bombay now Mumbai certainly did not remind me of Kodai. Bangalore so far has proved to be more cultured but its certainly not the small charming town it used be say 5 years back.
I harbour a strong bias towards form play in all its manifestations. I’m most akin to using metaphors and strong typography in my work. Though I rely heavily on the grid, I categorically try and wish to move out of the matrix of technology implements which have replaced the grand old design procedure. My generation of designers have embraced such practices producing redundant pretty images in bulk. I constantly strive to move towards a more raw and pure output which gives my work originality.
I’m deeply indebted to my education at M.S.U. Baroda where a more than just skin-deep knowledge of Art History and Aesthetics was provided in addition to a fantastic library and one of the best Art Archives.
This compilation mostly showcases my self-initiated projects and has no commercial work.
