So, my first attempt at a Windows Phones app (a worldwide contest) wasn’t too bad- considering none of my apps for any other OS have been published yet- I was one of the 50 finalists from all over the world!! It’s great to be nominated eh? Haha…Well, I have big plans for the app I designed and hopefully it will soon see the light of day.Fingers crossed!

It’s a new year and that means it’s time for a new helmet. The first experiment with a polycarbonate helmet meant that I could only use water-based colors since thinner based paints could affect the integrity of the helmet. Used pearlized airbrush colors with brushes that gave that unique shimmering effect- seen best in the bright sun. Coated with a gloss urethane coat. The next project will be full airbrushing but without stencils-the feel of a freehand is too much to give up! The orange not only highlights my brand color but suitably matches my latest bike- a KTM!
Everyone says that 2012 will see the end of the world. I feel that it will only be the end of everything old & stale and bring with it, a fresh new beginning as ushered in by the Chinese year of the Dragon. So, don’t worry yourself sick, a new dawn is here! Welcome to 2012, the best year ever!
The contender: Rodeo 2.0, a shoe created for an online contest becomes one of the 5 favorite picks. Not bad for a graphic designer, eh? See here
The Maids’ Company is a philanthropic firm with a not-for-profit business model- it provides professional housekeeping services while empowering and bringing dignity to domestic workers. It needed an identity and visual communication that spoke to a relatively younger professional audience but was direct and effective at the same time. I refined a rough draft of the logo and designed stationery, brochures, posters and a website.

For those who missed out, this is the year of the Rabbit- so have a jolly hopping time!
One fine day, a behance.net counterpart asked his whole circle to check out this site called “The Blog of Franscesco Mugnai” where he was mentioned amongst the 10 best designers of India- a list compiled by a chap called Nikola Lazarevic. And boy, was I surprised to have found my name in there! Ego-boost and more web presence? I will take it! Quiet unsurprising was the thumbnail he chose to show my work- the Madrid 2016 Olympics logo- almost 90% of my interviewers recall that project as their favorite!
