hello

I’m Hitarthy Shah, an art director based in Mumbai.

It’s incredible how I stumbled upon ‘art direction’ during a course in college and felt like I met "the one".  

Strategising, brainstorming, ideating, storytelling and designing. It’s like someone tailor-made a career for me.

Hand-lettering on the last pages of my notebook and occasionally transporting myself to the picturesque world of knife painting made me realise that papers and canvasses do a damn good job of making me happy!

 

My time interning in Berlin, Tokyo and New York taught me how differently similar we all are. 

It is this challenge of finding ‘the different’ in ‘the similar’ that keeps me going!
