Shakti did a great job for me. I love my logo. It is unique and sharp looking. He was very creative and provided many good choices to work with. Shakti is very professional and he provided anything that I asked for in a very timely manner. I would recommend him.

He has also recently updated my website with graphics and his ideas to make the site better. He did this in a timely manner and I enjoyed working with him and seeing what he would come up with next. He works with integrity and a fair price.

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 created a logo for my Music Studio (Studio Meraki) and he was very committed to designing a visual that could encapsulate the work we do. He was patient and gave me several artistic and creative options to choose from. Shakti pays careful attention to minute details and is a pleasure to work with!
I’m very happy with the logo he designed, and it’s perfect to use in our programmes, slideshows, certificates and stationary. I highly recommend Shakti to anyone looking for an enthusiastic and innovative designer.”

“We approached Shakti to design our wedding stationary 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!”

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.

Shakti has a knack of drawing out what you visualize in your mind. I was amazed to see how quick he was in understanding what I wanted when I approached him to design the logo for my Bespoke Tailoring label HP Su Misura. The result was a sharp and crisp looking monogram… and that’s precisely what I wanted!

His work for my Loungewear label Holma has been outstanding, the brand placement he managed to achieve for the brand was brilliant. He also took care of the digital media marketing for the same, which was very high quality work with words that hit all the right notes. We needed to create a new fashion statement using Pajamas in the outdoors and the creatives achieved that. The best part about his design work is the precision and the attention to detail… I can go so far to say that sometimes I feel his work could pass a microscope test!!

I had a pleasant experience working with Shakti. He understands what a customer needs and adapts quickly when asked for changes. He was very cooperative when he was hired to design a logo for me. Good design and good service. I will definitely hire him again in the future for other design work! Highly recommended..

“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.”

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.

Like my style? Feel free to get in touch with me and we can started on something new! Say hello at : hello [at] designbyshakti [dot] com or use the contact page to instantly get in touch!
