I have been a Visual Designer for over eleven years, with extensive experience in graphic design; video editing and production, animation graphics, print, front-end UI web design, free-hand drawing and fine art paintings.

Applications I am proficient in are Photoshop, Premiere, Dreamweaver, InDesign, Illustrator, Final Cut Pro, After Effects, Compressor, DVD Studio Pro, Encore, Flash & Video Encoder, Instructional Video Design, Digital Media Authoring, Hand-coded HTML for email campaigns, CMS, and Project Management softwares.

 

Using the above applications, I have :

  • Produced a documentary style video for international release
  • Edited over 50 TV broadcasts and streaming videos
  • Delivered videos in multiple formats for TV, Web, DVD and mobile systems
  • Designed front-end UI/UX for websites
  • Created animated shorts, e-cards, splash pages and banner ads
  • Developed HTML emails for deployment via popular email campaign systems
  • Modified pre-developed WordPress templates
  • Designed music albums for renowned artists
  • Layout design of magazines and marketing collateral
  • Created large scale stage backdrops and convention displays for international events
  • Oils, acrylics, and mixed media paintings for large scale installation murals, commissioned works for private clientele and fine art collectors

 

So it’s probably obvious by now – I’m either surrounded by visual design or I’m always looking for an excuse to create something interesting that contributes towards a better world.

I am passionate about building creatively rich communication media through fine art and multimedia. Each day motivates me to conceptualize something. A creative idea can quickly excite me to start on an animated short, a storyboard for a documentary, or even a new painting. Whether it is working on my personal project, taking direction and delivering exactly what’s needed or collaborating with different teams – I’m game to do it all.

I have lived in the United States since 2001. My origins are the archeologically rich, historic city of Hyderabad in South India. Growing up in a family with a strong art background made it easy to choose my creative career. My journey of artistic expression began at the age of six, painting alongside my father in his art studio. When I graduated in 1998 from the Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, College of Fine Arts with B.F.A, with a Major in Applied Arts, I had acquired the technical skills to make my vision a reality. I continue to expand my creative talents while being keenly conscious of the freedom and support my family has always offered me.

I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing my work. Please feel free to drop me a line and I’ll be sure to get back to you.

I also take on freelance Multimedia projects every now and then. Please take a look at my abundant collection of happy clients and 100% 5-star reviews on Thumbtack.com :)
