    I wanted to apply for the post of Art Director. I have long experience in Art Direction and Graphic Designing with a demonstrated history of working in the Graphic World. My professional skills include Art Direction, Graphics, Digital, Publishing, Logo Design, and Typography. I am very experienced in Infographics and other forms of data visualisation as well as staple tools such as Adobe.
    In over 15 years of my working experience, the media as well as the overall communication design industry has changed. In media, print and digital formats have merged and there is an increase in use of data related information. Communication design has expanded to include traditional alongside new digital media. I have used my existing skills as well as learnt new ways to stay relevant in the changing scenario and make the presentation more engaging.
    Apart from this, my repertoire includes overall Art Direction. I have handled teams of graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, photo researchers and people with other design skill-sets.
