Kunel Gaur : Interview

Kunel hails from New Delhi, India. He works in advertising. And like every art director, he shares the burden of being a great photographer, illustrator and artist. He is a non-drinker, non smoker and hence very non-advertising, which is why at times he thinks he should just stick to becoming a film maker. That’s because he’s ok with coke overdose (He also owns a tshirt brand called Cocaine – for which he just directed his first film titled “This is cocaine”). While some may think he has lost it, he believes he hasn’t even found it yet.

Why are you into Advertising?
I have no idea. Maybe because it has a mix of everything in it, and I like that. Advertising uses you in every way it can, which is a good thing if you do have a lot to offer.

Did you attend school for fine art or design or Communications?
I attended a 3 year course in Advertising and Graphic design from WLCI. Ten years back it did seem like a better idea than going for an engineering school when you didn’t want to become an engineer.

Fingerprints is an advertising and design studio, which believes in work that satisfies creative hunger while keeping the client happy. It’s important to us that we build, nurture and maintain brands as well as relationships.

Tell us about your designers/animators. Did they go to fine art or design schools? How do you pick them up?
Most of our designers are from design schools in and around Chennai. We only take in designers who get in touch with us and apply to our agency directly. We believe this brings out the fire in them to give us their best.

Sachin Karle. Terrace gardener. Alternative therapy practitioner. 
Avid traveller. Food enthusiast. Tech geek. Shoe-o-phile.

Why are you into Advertising?
Because I was very clear that I never wanted to be a doctor, an engineer, a banker or a professor.
I wanted to do something new every day. I honestly don’t know what I would have done if not advertising.

Did you attend school for fine art or design or Communications?

Yes. I did my GD Art (Commercial Art) from L.S. Raheja School of Art, Bandra, Mumbai in 1995.
