We’re great supporters of the curious and the inquisitive, so when Melvin of Inquisitive Minds contacted us about doing an interview about our work, we leapt at the idea … well OK, it was more of an enthusiastic crawl, but in our heads there was definitely some leaping involved.
A big thank you to Melvin Pereira for inviting us to do this. An excerpt of the interview is below and the link to read it in its entirety follows.
[Q] Tell Us something about yourself.
Vishal: I’m Vishal Bharadwaj, but not that famous guy who makes those movies. I’ve been working since 2003 when I finally wrenched myself away from the clutches of Academia with most of my vital organs intact.
Samir: I’m Samir Bharadwaj, and I’m Vishal Bharadawaj’s brother. No, not the famous guy, the lesser known Academia wrestler. It’s sometimes difficult to make the distinction between when I wasn’t working and when I was, but I’d say since 1998 or so in various freelance capacities.
[Q] What do you Do for a living and Where?
Vishal: I’m a graphic designer, mostly web & identity design, with a healthy side of illustration. I work from home, which means that, yes, I do not have to dress up and go to work. Pants, in fact, are optional.
Samir: Graphic Design is the official version of what I do, but it does vary from web design to more traditional print design, to illustration and even writing when the need arises. Generally, design covers all of it. I also wear pants, most of the time. I leave the well ventilated artistry to my esteemed colleague.
