Understanding design for me has been a process of great evolution. Through these 4 years of immersing myself into design, I have come to realize that I could be doing nothing else.
I have spent these years exploring all aspects of design that I could cable into and now look at myself standing at a point where I’d truly peruse becoming a master of one. I strongly believe in the ways of minimalism.

Creative expressions and a penchant for designing define the person I am. Being associated with Pearl Academy has helped me further develop my aesthetic aspirations. Equipped with an inherent talent in sketching and a reputed professional degree, I am more drawn towards graphic design.
A design is an imprint of it’s creator’s personality and lends an identity to his/her thoughts. I have always been fascinated by creative works that not only provide visual joy but also stimulate my mind. I wish to mark my contribution by creating designs which effectively capture the mindshare of target audience.
