Hey! I am Charvi

Hey everyone! I am Charvi from Jaipur, India.

I did my undergrad in Visual Communication and minor in Contemporary Arts from Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore, India. I have been working as a freelancer for the past three years. I started off as a graphic designer, worked a bit in social media, moved into art direction/photography and finally started working as a creative consultant for homegrown brands. I enjoy switching across mediums and work of location based projects. You can check out some of my work here.

I love buildings, table settings, cafes, noodles and patches of jungle in the middle of a city, which are sometimes documented and shared on my instagram.

I am super excited about my first snow and being a student again, and scared about everything that comes along with both!
