Kawal Oberoi is an independent graphic designer, brand consultant and podcaster from India.
He works with clients ranging from artists to writers, start-ups to established businesses, corporates to not-for-profit organisations, boutique studios to established agencies and brands that are in-between. He loves partnering with fearless and ambitious people who are passionate about what they do.
In 2018, he started Designed this way podcast. It's his initiative to start candid conversations with designers and other creative folks, to bring out the stories about the realities of living a creative life. These wide-ranging conversations also reveal the diversity of thoughts, practices and opinions that exist in the creative world.
He lives a nomadic lifestyle and travels around India capturing expressions of Indian native aesthetics. He shares them with the world through his passion project - Swatch Bharat.
I would like to show in detail the design process behind some of my client projects and personal projects (Designed this way and Swatch Bharat). I would also like to talk about Indian identity and about the challenges and opportunities of being a young designer in India.
