I am banskt, alias Saikat B.
And I design elegant stuff, beautifully.
That's right. I am a creative graphic & web designer, based in Bangalore, India, specialising in design for branding & identity, print and web. I love simple and clean designs.
People ignore design that ignores people.
Everything is designed. Few things are designed well.
Who is banskt?
banskt's real name is Saikat Banerjee. And that's me. I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Kolkata. In the good ol' days, I used to be a topper at school, college and univ. Presently, I am a research scholar at IISc. I promote myself as a research scholar / graphic designer. You must be wondering how a research scholar jaywalked into the field of graphic designing. Long story short, I have 8 years formal training in fine arts. The rest was hard work, online courses and passion. And that shows, I am passionate with graphic design - very much so.
Here's what I do
Well, I do a lot of things. Once you enter my room, you will get a glimpse of my varied interests. But here are some things that I thought may interest you.
- Branding & Identity
I design logos and help in consistent branding across the board in all design areas (business cards, letterhead, envelopes, websites, etc.)
- Graphic Design
Publications, Brochures, Posters, Signs, Advertisements, Image manipulations, and other print designs
- Web Design & Development
Yes, I can design your website. I have experience in front-end design, XHTML, CSS & PHP development (w3c standards), open–source CMS like Wordpress, Joomla.
Banskt is a great talent. He listens very well, takes direction well, and still puts on a thinking hat. Did I mention not having to relay changes more than once. I would love to work with him again.
