After spending an entire rebellious childhood guava picking in Guwahati, I moved to Bangalore in 2008 to attend design school and have made this city my home since. Spoiled by the universe with the internet and unleashed finally by a biting drive to make conceptually functional and culturally delightful work, you can now find me either fussing over design details, being in awe of great art direction in period films, or voraciously consuming information to learn a bit more about the world every day.
Every once in a while between eating deadlines, I cook, teach myself Spanish and in dire circumstances, sing to save my life.
Under my name Sankhalina, I run a one-person creative consultancy. I work with individuals, brands and businesses to help them find creative solutions, shape their brand persona and express themselves visually across print, screen, web & mobile channels. In the past, this has involved working with clients across Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, New York and London and with teams both local and remote.
I primarily use the skills of graphic design, design thinking and creative direction which at times could be an individual execution or at other times involves putting together and directing a team of skilled individuals working towards the best end-goal.
Jumpstarted in 2016, this blog is my long-desired attempt at making conversations about all things design, culture, communication and expression. This is my online living room and you are all welcome for a cup of conversation. I hope to keep creating good content for this space so that you all find something here to indulge in.
