Head Visual Design


Ideal Candidate

“What next?” is the question you are dealing with.

You are curious, but would like to stretch it further. And you love solving problems – all kinds of them – social, business and personal. And that too with Visual Design. You would show, than talk. You believe in the power of storytelling. You break down complex problems into simple visual narratives. You communicate those ideas with clarity.

You are fast. You like to test your visuals with users and will not rest till you get things right. At the same time, you will risk going by your ‘heart’.

You are always thinking how to make things better. You will ‘Start a Fire’ (not in the jungle).

You are OK with ambiguity. You know when you are getting overwhelmed. You will steer the team in a way that all stakeholders are aligned and fueled by Creativity. At the same time, you will demand accountability from the stakeholders.

Typography is second nature to you. You can’t live without it. Your portfolio smacks of it.

Clients get you excited. You are obsessed with them. You are hungry to show them your stuff. And you will not always agree with them. And also tell them so.
