About me

Hi there! My name is Anuranjan Pegu and I am a graphic designer, illustrator, animal lover and a biker rolled into one. I indulge in design that is atypical, stands out, fights cliches, and at the same time helps brands to grow and stand apart. I now focus on work that brings positive change to society and the world around us. If you want to see my work, please visit my portfolio site at www.anuranjan.com/portfolio or contact me here.

In design, though I do favor the minimal, I mostly stay true to the brief and change my design style accordingly. I have been rocking it hard in the design world for more than seven years now though I have been in illustration for more than 13! I have experience working in small studios, big agencies or for individuals in New Delhi and in New York. I also have experience riding a motorcycle at 15,000 feet in the Himalayas through knee deep water and beautiful landscapes.

If you want to know about the motorcycle trip, visit this blog. If you want to know what I have been upto in design, look below:
