My name means “love” and I love designing, illustrating and creating wonderful visual and interactive solutions for people. I also love animals and motorcycling- a lot!
I indulge in design that is atypical, stands out, fights cliches, tells great stories- all of which helps brands to grow and stand apart. I have always loved helping out social causes to bring a positive change in the world and this is what I exclusively do now.
I have been a Designer & Art Director for 13 years now while I have been in illustration for more than that! I have experience working in small studios, big agencies or for individuals in New Delhi and in New York, with clients all across the world. I also have experience riding motorcycles across the world- from the Himalayas at 15,000 feet to the entire span of the American northeast to the beautiful mountains of Southern France to the beautiful beaches of Baja.
If you want to see everything that I do, please visit my design blog at or my Behance page. If you want to read about my motorcycle trip, visit this blog.
I have been working hard, experimenting and am actively engaged in bringing positive change.
For many years now.
