Hello. My name is Karthik. I make things
and I work with very interesting people.
I have been involved with architecture, design, process, and product development for the last 12 years.An architect and a designer, I have trained in Pune, Pondicherry, and Dessau-Roßlau in Germany. I have successfully completed projects for brands and institutions in India, Germany, Scotland, Singapore, Brasil and a competition for a new base in Antarctica.
Since 2009, I have designed, user interfaces, technology products, backpacks, food products, brands and books. I am currently working on housing for the wastepickers and trying to take a plastics recycling facility off the ground, a brand of vegan foods called better, aiding a specialty coffee company called SUBKO find its place, helping a millet based foods company called Kiru develop a vernacular identity, and help Davis Index represent the industry better.
I am also part of larger groups who are doing very very cool things. Places I like to call friends.
We started with projects in architecture, space design, branded environments. We eventually grew to design websites & interfaces & products.
Tasha makes the fruit spreads. Kedar makes the business, I make the funnies. The company makes the best fruit spreads. Ever.
The other five run the travel company. I run around and design things for them. I also get everyone addicted to Rasmalai.
I help with design, marketing and occasionally lifting boxes. I religiously drink and evangelise the coffee.
I like working with the business team. Not for them. I feel the work is always better when the design and storytelling is done from within not outside of the business unit.
If you are here, you have either received an email I sent and you clicked on the URL. or, you requested for a sample of my works, and this is the closest I have come to making one. Either ways, I hope this didn’t disappoint.
