As a graphic designer, one of the many things I’m often asked is
"How on earth did you get started with all this?” For as long as I can remember, I've loved making things look pretty. So to answer that, it seems fairly fitting that I chose a career that celebrates that very quality.

Tryst with Design is my chance to give back to the creative community, to share my musings and hopefully elicit, in you, an interest towards this grossly misunderstood industry.

 
 

Creative Confidence was a read that I’d been eyeing for a while, so when I was gifted the book, I dropped everything and delved right in. My sole intent behind reading it was to see how the Kelley brothers would dumb down the ‘design’ process for a larger audience. Wha...

Ever noticed how the numeric keypads on a smartphone and calculator are actually inverted? Me neither! It was only until I read about it on Medium that I realised how oblivious I was. The article, though technical, piqued my interest because it brought to my attention...

When Tim Brown (CEO of Ideo, the most influential design consultancy in the world) writes a book, designers all over the world jump at the prospect of owning a copy. And even though this book was written back in 2009, when lifestyle technology was relatively more nasce...

HERE'S MY STORY

My career graph began with tallying balance sheets and after giving 2 years to Debit-Credit, I realized the only things I should be crunching are my abs. Cut to 4 years later, I found myself graduating from Symbiosis Institute of Design, Pune with a degree in Fashion Communication. So how does a major in Fashion land you a career in Graphic Design? Well, that's a question I've been asking myself all this while.

 

I'm sure you have a bunch of questions.

HOPE THIS HELPS.

WHY 'TRYST WITH DESIGN'?

A tryst is defined as a romantic rendezvous between lovers. I think my equation with design is pretty much the same. What started out as a serendipitous encounter, slowly flourished into a beautiful union. And as we all know, the best love stories are the ones that begin unexpectedly.

WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?

Fortunately or unfortunately for design, its success lies in its invisibility. Thus, it is very often misunderstood for being frivolous. Maybe it's time someone broke those misconceptions and TWD is my shot at that. Hope you enjoy reading just as much as I enjoyed creating!

If you still have a few queries or any feedback to share, I'm all ears. And if the feedback's positive, I'm even more interested.
Do get in touch! I'm always up for a good conversation.
