About me

My passion lies in visual communication, with a keen eye for conceptual design. My practice is colourful, engaging and aims to trigger curiosity. Working across multidisciplinary fields such as branding, publication design, virtual reality, augmented reality, event curation, etc., has helped develop a personal style that has a place in contemporary practice. In contrast to my commercial practice which explores various visual disciplines through an amalgamation of experience and aesthetics, my illustrative work tells stories and address pressing social issues. Although illustration has been my strong suit, my education in MA Graphic Media Design at the London College of Communication has expanded my choice of medium. Exploring new technology and design tools, my recent practical outcomes aim to create accessible discursive design and facilitate a more open dialogue. My graduate degree in BA Fashion Communication from international-affiliated National Institute of Fashion Technology, India, has also given me knowledge in photography, art direction and advertising. I enjoy finding alternative solutions to problem solving, contextualising social responsibility and interdisciplinary collaborations that expand my knowledge and skill set.
