About Dhav

How did I get into design?

From age 12, I began creating YouTube content using my dad’s camera and capture card for recording PlayStation games. My passion for making tech, gaming, and unboxing videos blossomed. To give my channel a professional touch, I self-taught Photoshop, After Effects, and Sony Vegas at a young age. Budget constraints pushed me to design everything myself, which I found both affordable and enjoyable. I pursued a Creative Computing course from 16 to 19 to enhance my skills. Teachers commended my dedication as I consistently completed assignments ahead of time. This commitment carried into my professional life, where I delved into the real world of client interaction.

My first work experience was at a digital marketing agency, where I contributed to various briefs and learned the dynamics of team collaboration. The experience initially overwhelmed me with its strict guidelines, deadlines, and the critical evaluation of my work by experienced professionals. However, I realized it was only the beginning of my journey.

Since then, I have had the privilege of working with numerous global clients, and my portfolio showcases the projects I have undertaken. As part of agency experience, I have engaged in designing concepts, artwork, videos, and innovative campaign ideas. I find immense joy in the design process, exploring diverse approaches to meet a brief’s requirements. The path of a designer as an adult has proven to be incredibly challenging, yet my passion for what I do drives me forward. I am determined to exhibit my design vision to the world.

Foundations of DhavDesign

I started DhavDesign in 2020 amidst the challenging times of the pandemic. As a freelance designer, my goal was to help small businesses, individuals, and clients with their design needs. I noticed that many people had great ideas but struggled to create designs without professional software or someone skilled in design. That’s when I offered my freelance services to work on projects, whether it was a one-time job or ongoing work for clients who needed regular design assistance. During the pandemic, I took the opportunity to focus on improving my skills and gaining more experience

I learned how to illustrate better, create complex 3D models, animate movements, and adapt to new platforms like TikTok and Instagram filters, which are popular for marketing purposes. I dedicated my time to becoming a better designer, which eventually led to me securing agency work with some of the largest advertising and public relations companies. Throughout my journey, I have worked with various clients and learned from experienced designers who have helped me grow.

Future Of DhavDesign

Looking ahead to the future of DhavDesign, my intention is to maintain my strong knack for intricate details and innovative design solutions, whether it’s for client projects or fulfilling specific briefs. I am committed to continuously pushing the boundaries of my capabilities, exploring diverse industries where my skills can make a substantial impact. Alongside this, I am equally dedicated to nurturing the brand aspect of DhavDesign, curating products that resonate with people and garner their genuine support.

Reflecting on my journey, even as a child, I possessed a business-oriented mindset, engaging in online selling and negotiations. This early exposure fostered a unique approach to entrepreneurship, which seamlessly carried into my venture with DhavDesign. Establishing my website and crafting a business model around transforming my designs into tangible products, I swiftly adapted to dynamic changes and evolving methods. Leveraging my design background, I have consistently strived to enhance the appeal and quality of my offerings, striving for excellence at every step.

As I move forward, I remain steadfast in my commitment to marrying creativity with business acumen, using my design prowess to create lasting products and experiences that both captivate and resonate with a wide audience.
