They hope to inspire young minds by providing them with a platform to nurture their talent.
The Clique is an upcoming online store that sells handbags, accessories and jewelry. The logo needed to be recognizable, young, stylish and relevant to its online platform. As an e-consumer myself, I only click on an item that I ‘Love’. Hence I created a mnemonic that focuses on this action. I wanted to give this identity a very international feel yet keep it very stylish and approachable.
Had the privilege of illustrating the speakers for Kyoorius Design Yatra 2013. I am very influenced by Japanese art and form, so this style came very naturally to me. The concept for these portraits was that these speakers were way ahead of their time in terms of thinking and mindset, so I wanted to make them look almost star fleet counsel-like. Their outfits are a representation of their own work. This really was an amazing project, since I had the liberty to experiment.
The animal co called some wild and talented artists from all over the world to dedicate their latest art piece to the animal they fancy the most. The rule is that the artists need to design it in the form of the animal logo. the Kyuubi no kitsune is my submission to this unbelievable collective. Truly humbled to be a part of it.
"The Kyubi no kitsune , or Nine Tailed fox, has been an extremely important part of Chinese and Japanese folklore. It is said that when the fox gains its ninth tail, its fur turns bright gold or red, and can see or hear anything that happens in the world. They are the guardians of this world and possess infinite wisdom and power.So as someone who is deeply fascinated with Japanese culture, I was inspired to illustrate ‘Kurama’ , the nine tail chakra fox from the anime Naruto, who sticks with him till the end , while kicking some major ass along the way!”
As a designer, creating your own visual identity is a must! I spent a lot of time figuring out what mine would look like. After sketches and hours of research on various fonts and structures, I had a brainwave. My biggest asset is my hair and profile. I am very inspired by victorian silhouette profiles and felt that would fit perfectly with my identity. Also instead of printing directly on paper, I choose to rubberstamp my logo and text, to give it that rustic stamp look.
This was an extremely interesting Creativeland Asia project. Dr. Jawahar Shah is one of the first people in India to have an iOs app that has a vast homeopathy medicinal archive. I’ve had the privilege to design this app from its look to its UX keeping it’s colour scheme very neutral and friendly.
