DATE OF BIRTH:

NATIONALITY:

United States of America


I am a graphic designer in search of a  full-time/part-time employment and freelance gigs. I possess a growing passion for new ideas, with a refined knowledge of design development, conceptual progression and interesting marketing techniques. I adopt a radical and contemporary style to keep up with the current industry standards. Three lines that best describe what sort of a worker I am:

Thrive on challenges/
Dexterity in workspace/
Highly passionate/

I demonstrate strong versatility in my field. My designs are bold and detailed. I have trained to work individually and as part of a team; contributing and receiving; leading and being led.

Resourceful and committed, I am known to be reliable, with a high degree of integrity. I am
enthusiastic at my work, vibrant in my personality and real fun to be around with. Over 5 years of design experience has taught me to be the perfect fit for any creative environment. My strengths lie with, but not limited to, print designing, particularly focusing on typography, illustration, composition/ layout and color. However, I do explore new realms of design, constantly move from one contemporary mode to another, changing and adapting myself to the design timeline.

OBJECTIVE

I aspire to work in an environment, where I can learn and contribute while passionately applying my years of experience and skills towards its growth. I’m in pursuit for the right opportunity to showcase my talent.


I did my high-school in Sophia’s College, Mumbai, India. After one year of undergraduation studies in MOP Vaishnava College, Chennai, India, I moved to the States to pursue Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Raritan Valley Community College in New Jersey, USA. Within completion of two years there, I transferred my credits to Rutgers University in New Jersey, USA and finished my degree with distinction.

AWARDS

I graduated with a Magna cum Laude from Rutgers University in May 2010.

I was on the University’s President’s List in May 2008 and the Dean’s List from 2007 to 2009.

I received an Assistant Scholarship to finish my education and was named a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society in 2008.


With over 6 years of experience in fast-paced, versatile design environments, I hold a strong background in conceptually designing and visually communicating an idea. With a detailed knowledge in modern tools and techniques, I aspire to work for a company of multi-faceted exposure, to interact with people of different backgrounds and with different skill sets, and to learn and assimilate the ever-changing standards and expectations of the design industry.
