About

I’m a young Belgian designer of Indian descent, whose curiosity knows no ends. I love arts and science, and am also invested in politics and activism. Though my practice as a designer, I have been looking to help meaningful people and institutions have a louder voice. What makes my design different is my sensitivity and the time I take to find the right words.

I’m fairly polyvalent, even though I have a preference for printed work. I have had the occasion to try different things : illustration, branding, animation, web design, poster design, editorial design… I also love world cinema and comic books
