You are known for your ‘Typography of places in Karnataka’, ‘49daysOfKannadakshara’ & few other projects like ‘Old Monk Rum’, ‘Swami Vivekananda, etc.,’ say about these
* Just by a thought I decided to Typography of places in Karnataka by replacing place’s speciality in one/two of it’s spelling.
* 49daysOfKannadashara was started by getting inspired from two other projects named ‘30daysOfMalayalamLetters’ from Kerala Designers & ‘47daysOfDevanagariScript’ from North Indian designers. I used to spend about two hours daily for designing each alphabet for up to 49 days
* Swami Vivekananda’s illustration was done to remember the day he represented Hinduism at the parliament of World’s religion ie., Sept 11

Even I’m an amateur designer, not pro yet. I suggest them to keep consistency in designing, do more of experimental design, play with colors, they should do more personnel projects which interests them because they won’t be in limitations of clients viz, Time, Colors & complete design sometimes.
