Still Sneha, but this time in first-person. I believe that design should be like a well-made argument— succinct, perfectly balanced between rationale and metaphor, and delivered powerfully.

Right after graduating from the National Institute of Design, I started my design career at Unacademy. I went on to build and grow the Creative team working directly with leadership across teams. Until early 2020, I was the founding designer and Head of Design at Graphy, where I co-led the multidisciplinary team that worked across brand and product.

In 2018, I created tiptoptypetips, an irregular newsletter for designers and typographers (or anyone really), from around the world understand and use typography better. More recently, I teach the Brand Experience (BX) design program with 10kdesigners. BX is a cohort-based course on designing immersive and well-rounded brand experiences, and working alongside brand, product and content.

Currently, I independently work with early-stage startups, internet companies and ambitious founders to help build their brand strategy, experience and design. I also collaborate on projects with design collectives such as Prophecy, WE3 and VectorDAO.
