A Responsible Son, An Ethical Designer

A Responsible Son, An Ethical Designer

Largely self-taught, Charchit shares his story of selling sandwiches on the streets to becoming a designer

“Son, you learned business card designing in Mumbai, didn’t you? Why don’t you start to polish your skills again and maybe I could get you some business”, said my dad.

It was just another day for most in early 2014, but one of the most dreaded times for us. It was a time when there was no school for me – I was supposed to be in the 9th grade – and my family was staying in a single room apartment. We had lost everything – work money, savings and my dad was desperately trying to build things right up from scratch. Until things became a bit better for us, not before a couple of years, I had unintentionally started to walk on the path of design.
