Graphic Expression

@ VOL 6 ON MAR 07, 2015

We are Riba and Simran, an eccentric pair of design junkies. We're graphic designers, artists, bad karaoke singers, serial shopaholics and best friends. We're hooked on all things Adobe. Concocting unique, special designs to match your needs gives us a happy high! We love being art nerds. We love tackling challenges. We love seeing the "this is it" expression.

If Fonts were Celebrities

@ VOL 6 ON MAR 07, 2015

Pavithra Ramanujam is a sucker for bright colours, bezier curves, smooth gradients and crisp jalebis. They serve as my muse as I design keynotes, prezi’s, visual interfaces and cool icons at work. Her latest obsession: lettering and stitching -- and comparing fonts to the rich and famous.
