H.O.D. Graphic Design
Utkarsha M. likes the creative process of designing, researching, experimenting, getting lost, trying again and unexpectedly realizing that the design is right there!
With work experience over 15 years, starting with J. Walter Thomson as an Art Director, moving on to Publishing with the launch of “OVERDRIVE” and then Manager Graphics at Star News Corp, Utkarsha realized that Art & Design aesthetics can applied to every aspect of life.
Having experienced all medias Advertising, Publishing and Television her next obvious foray is UX. Catering to Logistics, Education and Fashion Industries and she also has many ecommerce sites in her portfolio.
Teaching is a lifelong passion, and with every passing year the grey strands in her hair add both to her knowledge as well as the students she interacts with…that the design is right there, in front of you!
