CA : Chose to be one.
CA : I mostly design, logos, illustrations and letters.
CA : I am not a legend :)
CA : A good designer meets a brief target but a great designer exceeds the target & produces a design that is timeless.
CA : A good design challenges the ordinary and adds to what was previously there in the market. It has a function and excels in the looks, too.
CA : Good design is unique and personal, that's why people should not just use templates, but rather seek to personalize their design.
CA : I would love to explore designing for different cultures that I never knew before.
