Why are you a Graphic Designer? Did you attend school for fine art or design?
Although I was always inclined towards the creative aspect of things, I’d say my decision to study art & design was a spontaneous one. When I was younger, my parents encouraged me to draw & paint a lot. Growing older, other activities & interests started overshadowing my love for art a bit, but my creative curiosity never died. Only after talking to a few friends who were applying to art school, did I realise that studying art & design was an option available for me. I was out of touch with my skills, but decided to go ahead & apply anyway. I’m glad I made this decision, because studying in Srishti School of Art, Design & Technology not only helped me grow as a visual artist, but also shaped me into a responsible & socially aware person. I learnt that design is not just a visual aid, but is in fact a powerful tool that can help bring about change. I graduated with a diploma in visual communication.
