Some days are just like that. A situation arrives and you have to deliver the design fast — really fast, within minutes. Today I am sharing the design story of a poster for the cricket team ‘Throttlers.’
The shoelace was great. So. this year the expectations are higher. Can I pull it off?
On 11-Apr-2010, IISc Alumni Cell is organising ‘Science & Technology Run’ or better known as ‘SnT Run.’ I got a chance to do the branding work. I have handled the branding of SnT Run of 2008. People liked the banners and posters very much: especially the ‘shoelace’ one. Read the full story here.

One lazy afternoon in November. I was chatting with my friends Pavan and Pankaj. We were discussing about cute product designs featured in a website and were admiring the designers. Suddenly, we had a spark: “Can we organize a design competition for such products in our college department (CPDM, IISc Bangalore) among the students?”

Whenever I see an interesting advertisement or related information in web, I usually share it with some of my friends who have similar interests through e-mail or tweet. One day in June – 2009, I happened to visit the forum of DesiCreative.com.
I said to myself: “Here are some people who are genuinely interested about ads.” Then I started posting some articles in this forum. This blog post is entirely dedicated to nine posts authored by me in DesiCreative.com Forum in the year 2009. These nine posts discuss art, advertisements, animation film…

“Raise your voice…”
‘Voices’ is a student magazine in my college with the slogan ‘Raise your voice, let yourself be heard!’ I got a chance to design posters that ask students to be a part of the magazine.
This is my attempt on a guerrilla ad campaign for a social cause — “Save Trees.”
Pawns in the game
Results of general elections in India are announced a few days back. This time, many of the candidates used the latest technologies like blogs, twitter, Orkut groups, Flash banner ads in websites, SMS campaigning… Also we saw a lot of public service ads urging citizens to use their fundamental right to vote.
In my college, this year’s Students’ Council Elections were held on 16-May-2009. I got the opportunity to design a series of posters to inform students about the election. Time frame for executing the work was very short.
Recruitment? In these troubled times? Well, don’t jump to draft an e-mail. I am talking about the making of recruitment press ads about two years ago.
In 2007, the technology company, where I worked, was thinking about conducting a walk-in interview to attract new talent to fill in some positions. Handouts were to be printed and a newspaper advertisement must be given. I was approached to do the design. A couple of samples were given to me. I started my work.
