Kavya Acharya

Senior Designer


I've always wanted to create something that builds a memory in our heads. I've grown up around films and music, and thrive best around creativity and humour. Illustration is one of my favourite hobbies and I aspire to become an art director someday. I also secretly wish for superpowers. I've previously worked at Condé Nast Traveller India magazine, an advertising agency called Scarecrow M&C Saatchi, and a mental health App called One More Light. I like a lot of things and don't hold myself back from exploring them all. Follow me on Instagram.


Niti Thakkar

Content Writer


Being deeply in love with words, both consuming and scrawling them, I found my true passion in writing. I realised one of my childhood dreams of becoming a doctor and now am working on my next goal of being a writer. Having worked with patients to treat their ailments, and then with doctors to write healthcare content, I eventually chose the creative field. I believe that you should every so often take the unconventional path just to see how it turns out. Follow me on Instagram.


Yash Panchal



Amazed by the power of creativity to transform everyday objects into something truly extraordinary, I have found that the best way to communicate is through my designs. I aspire to become an Art Director someday. Introverted at heart and obsessed with typography, I enjoy working on every little detail of lettering and fonts. When I’m not busy in the world of design you can always find me lost in the beauty of cars. As a designer, I strive to create work that is both visually stunning and functional, while always keeping the needs of the end user in mind. Follow me on Instagram.

Having worked in the customer service industry for years, I have decided to take the plunge into the vast, vibrant wide world of communication & design. I enjoy the creative approach, regardless of what medium I’m working in. After a short stint of taking up design education, I believe deeply in the power of visual storytelling & am always looking for creative ways to express them. Follow me on Instagram.


Shreyansh Rajpal

Video/Photo Editor


With a passion for visual storytelling through my images and films, I left my hometown to explore Mumbai. I am a travel photographer and filmmaker. I learned a lot on my journey, both literally and metaphorically. I realised that you need tremendous strength and have to put in a lot of hardwork to accomplish your dreams. I also naturally learned more about the art of photography and filmmaking. When I am not behind the camera, you can either find me editing scores of videos or sound asleep at home. Follow me on Instagram.
