Our logo development and design for The Black Tomato went beyond expectation with the help of Shakti. His immediate feedback and suggestions not only incorporated our thoughts, but also his design and marketing expertise.

The result was a logo that visually reflects and conceptually executes our Martini Bar concept. We would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for logo design and brand consulting.

“Shakti is a hardworking and creative writer whose work is clear and concise. He is someone you can depend on to give you well thought out work on time and I would highly recommend him for any job.”

Shakti did a wonderful job designing the poster for one of PT Foundation’s charity fundraiser events. The poster encapsulated the spirit of the organization, and was bold, clear and captivating. In a word-perfect!

Working with him was a pleasure. He understood what we needed quickly, was very responsive to feedback and questions, produced many high-quality options to select from, and delivered the final product in a timely fashion.

We would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for unique and creative designs that hit the mark!

“We approached Shakti to design our wedding stationery including hotel keycard jackets, tags, and customized room signs. This was really important to us as we wanted our friends and family to have a consistent wedding experience and keep everything very personalized. From the get go, Shakti was 100% attentive, patient and listened to everything we had to say. His attention to detail is marvelous. He went through tireless iterations till we were completely satisfied! We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for any design work!”

Working with Shakti on this design was so organic and natural! Shakti helped me come up with the name as well as the tagline on this project. It’s like you understood the mother brand well and were able to translate my thoughts into the design perfectly, and so we didn’t have to spend as much time moving back and forth between iterations. I like the way you share your inputs and find a way to incorporate your suggestions without imposing on your clients. Thanks for helping create Body Mantra!

Shakti’s inputs and work have been on point for us! He takes genuine interest in the work, and usually has design insights that always keep the brand’s objectives in mind. He has been a good resource for us and I am sure we will continue to work with him in the future!

Just after our first long meeting over coffee, Shakti understood exactly what I wanted out from my poster to match the Indian context. But it wasn’t going to be easy to implement – owing to strong technical parameters and legal constraints – of using only official colour schemes, licensed media, fonts, sizing and approved content.

Shakti brilliantly used a strong idea, creatively designed workarounds and applied with great care and rigorous attention to detail – within the heavy constraints and parameters – creating the perfect poster for the product to match the Indian context.

Equipped with professional expertise to develop ideas into creative, highly functional, & well-communicated design pieces, I am looking to work with clients that value a good design aesthetic.

I’d like to think that my aesthetic for all things beautiful has something to do with the fact that I’m in the creative business, although I do understand it has more to do with just having good taste!

As a creative person, I am always on the look out for interesting opportunities and look forward to working with fresh and exciting projects! To keep my skills sharp, I also undertake projects in other creative avenues, be it working on theatrical productions, photo-shoots or writing scripts, always trying to bring something fresher to the table.

I also run a small independent writing and music website project (DownrightFiction.com) where I interview and feature independent writers and musicians from all over.  I also love to travel and share some of my experiences in the photo gallery section here.
