Believe It or Not

I did my undergrad in Printing & Media Engineering at Manipal Institute of Technology, India. While learning about the technical side of the graphic arts industry, I was drawn towards design. I started teaching myself the basics of Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, but I knew something was missing. I knew there was more to design. So, I decided to apply to a design school. After working hard on my portfolio and convincing my parents of the change in my career path I finally got a call from RIT.

Passions & Interests

Graphic Design, typography, cooking, traveling and watching movies. Currently, I have a growing interest in designing for natural user interfaces and information design. Watch this space as this list keeps growing!

Presently

I am pursuing my MFA in Computer Graphics Design at Rochester Institute of Technology, NY. As each day passes by, I realize what a great decision it was to come here and study design. It is helping me become aware of all the complexities and intricacies that are involved in my chosen field. When the calling came, I accepted it, and never have I been so sure of anything in my whole life. I feel that I'm learning new things and improving everyday and I never want this to stop.

Current Projects

At the moment, I'm working on my Thesis Project which is called — Letters are Beautiful. It is an interactive exhibit which teaches people the basics of typography. I am designing the UI and also constructing the multitouch table.
