Very often being immersed in your brand every day means that you might not be able to identify gradual changes. As a researcher and strategist, a variety of research methodologies can be designed for your business and brand. Once information and feedback is collected our experience in qualitative and quantitive analysis means that identifying the key points, will inform the development of the brand.
Awarded an Indo Mauritian Scholarship to pursue my studies in India, I threaded along my studies, internships and work experience in advertising agencies and NGO’s. With a distinction in Graphic design from Bangalore University, I joined Redhouse Y&R Mauritius as a junior graphic designer. With four years of work experience in a reputed Mauritian advertising agency, Redhouse McCann, I proved to be a key asset to the team and together we worked on outstanding award winning campaigns. I added an additional skill working with Animacode Ltd, the top notch Mauritian digital company in conceptualising and developing creative assets for interactive channels of communication.

A Masters in Brands, Communication and Culture at Goldsmiths, University of London is an enriching experience. Firstly through a very rigid and intense academic focus, lecturers are always questioning, debating about topics we will be covering throughout the course. The presentations, the plethora of techniques used to teach this course, have undoubtedly instigated a determination in me to pursue this specific field as a career path.
