Behind The Scenes
Next time you’re at Idea Spice and you bump into a man with an impressive handlebar moustache, you’ll know you’ve run into Pravin. A storyteller, mimic and comedic relief, Pravin knows how to break the clutter and make a niche for himself. No nuance goes unnoticed in this sharp-eyed boy, who takes less than a few minutes to pick up your style before mimicking them for you. A complete entertainment package, there’s a never a dull moment with him around. His keen sense of observation brings with it attention to detail which enhances every work that goes his way. He looks into nooks and corners of brief to present design; an attribute that heightens the quality of each project he handles. A big Salman Khan fan, our man refers to Sallu bhai as his own kin, celebrating the star’s birthday each year by distributing sweets around.
The newest entrant at Idea Spice, Sachin is Pravin’s comrade in arms. The two together can be seen causing a riot at work, while miraculously striking off projects on the list. While Sachin has already adapted to the zesty culture at Idea Spice, he has also proved his mettle by delivering some great results. A good sport, this one takes all the leg pulling head on, brushing off all the wisecracks coming his way and soldiering on bravely. With signs of great potential, we are all looking forward to this young blood’s journey at Idea Spice
Amit is our star team player who looks out for everyone, effortlessly and persistently. A dedicated part of the team, Amit is calm in the face of some of the stormiest projects, and comes out victorious always, thanks to his strong sense of design, strategy and ability to get to the root of the brand. The clock never stops ticking for this one, as he checks off his list one after another, no matter a weekend, holiday or a sick day off. With Amit around, you can be rest assured of quality, no matter the quantity or scale of the project. A helpful and accommodating team member, you’ll find him pulling off impossible tasks with the team, and a smile on his face.
Shreya is as unique as her voice. She is the little squirrel of the studio who happily chirps around with constant bags of giggles and random dance moves. Such is her charm and cheer, that you wouldn't believe she can also get angry. Except the angrier she gets, the more we crack up. Jokes apart, that's when she sounds most adorable. She is a constant learner and is extremely hardworking when it comes to delivering great work on time. With her in our studio – we know a chirpy world is a fun world!
Bestowed with the honour of the title 'Queen of Excel Sheets', Lorraine is the hard working soul behind organizing and coordinating our creative, crazy mess. With a laughter that's forever on Mode:Vibration, Lorraine brings sugar, spice and everything nice to the team. From baking delectable goodies to bringing in spicy ideas, she is one beauty with brains. Persistant and forever patient, Lorraine is the dependable wall for everyone, heroicly dodging any bullets coming the team's way. Oh and her commendable command of Hindi is a value add. Next time when you visit our office, speak to her in pure Hindi and watch the magic unfold! (At your own risk, ofcourse)
She owns the title of 'Miss Versatile' being a writer, illustrator, you tube blogger, make up advisor, celebrity, diva and the list goes on. She keeps wearing multiple hats effortlessly and makes it look like a cake walk. She is a complete perfectionist and an influencer who can creepily engage everyone in the studio with some great conversations . Her vibe is infectious and her cat obsession is prominent (like the one in her picture!). This drama queen astonishes us every time with her work and is extremely dedicated and talented. Her skills, ideas and thought process is commendable - so much so the clients too are all wooed by her work. We love to have her around – she adds that spice to our team.
Calm, collected and erudite. Also straight faced and quick witted, Sajith will rarely come across as the CEO of IdeaSpice. His creative force and drive to dish out only the best work from the studio, is what motivates the team to strive for excellence. His never-ending passion for improvement (Kaizen) is the cornerstone of the organization.
Bonita is a bubble of energy at the studio inspiring us with her quirky poems and games – all with a twist. She is often known as “the annoying party starter” and “Pictionary junkie”, also bringing to Idea Spice her personal matrimonial service to get you started with socializing. Being the most enthusiastic human in office she can shoot 100 ideas in minutes and offer help to pull them off too. As an experience designer, she offers Idea Spice a complete package of work, fun and play – a rarely found but necessary criteria at Idea Spice. Pleasure to have her as part of our team – some one we can totally depend on.
Saurav Roy a.k.a. Roy (he gave up his first name because of horrible mispronunciations!) is our Chief Creative Officer and heads the India operations for Idea Spice. He has been a part of the organization since its inception 13 years ago. He graduated from the National Institute of Design specialising in graphic design. With a passion and zeal for branding, Roy has worked across numerous projects combining strategic thinking and design. In 2008, he moved from Dubai to head the India operations, where he is responsible for implementing the global marketing and business strategy. With a keen interest in business strategy models, Roy is now currently involved in using design to create more profitable and innovative business models. Roy is calm and composed most often. But don’t fall for that! Every now and then, he will shock you with sudden, out of the world acts of insanity! He is infamous as the person who purposely made bad coffee 13 years ago so nobody would ask him again!
Shijna keeps the design machinery running smoothly. She's the calm behind our storm. She schedules and plans the work, manages the traffic ensuring we don't work weekends yet never missing client deadlines. She's the left brain thinker handling money matters to project management to ensuring smooth operations. When she's not wearing her planning cape, she's laughing loudly and keeping the office spirits up. Shijna is the glue that keeps it all together. Her attention to detail and diligent planning is the spice to our crazy ideas!
An integral part of our team, Mehul is the core that makes sure all our finances are in proper order every month. A hard-worker who sets new benchmarks for punctuality and perseverance, Mehul is always keen and eager to learn more and expand his horizons.
Santhosh is all things finance. While we pursue our purpose with passion, Santhosh ensures money matters are not forgotten. This silent one will usually be found focusing on his screen, scheming on which invoice to chase next. Nobody escapes Santhosh's hawk eye. Nobody.
Earl Joson aka Jet
His pace of work is directly proportional to his name. Jet is one of the newbies at work and already quite the favorite. His assuring smile and calm attitude, towards every task at hand, speaks of the comfort he has achieved with his tools. A pleasant and able colleague, the team can always rely on Jet to deliver work that reflects standard and creativity, at supersonic speed.
This deep voiced young gun is a pro at organizing and compartmentalizing work, ensuring that every stage of a project is completed diligently. Fascinated by the finer things in life and enterprising by nature, you’ll know Sachit means business at first glance. He specializes in ordering food from portals that fail at delivering, and he ceases to give up.
When subtlety and sophistication join hands a Suhasini is created. A positive team worker with an infectious smile, who’s all set to kill with her delicious south-Indian lunches- defines her best. You don’t get to here much from her but do expect an intelligent statement that will get you thinking every now and then. Her work ethics precede all else as she diligently puts her mind to creating some exceptional work.
She comes from the modest town of Motihari, Bihar and brings the modesty with her. But dare not pass her off as a small town girl. She can surprise you with her sudden outbursts of humour; if you happen to walk into our studio when there’s no music playing (rare moments that they are) she would be the one who you’ll see with her hands up in the air, dancing to the music playing in her mind. Her liberating personality shines out in the websites designed by her- with just a little bit of guidance her work portrays the free flowing imprint of her colourful mind. Patience, confidence and a rare beautiful smile are just few of the awesome qualities this girl has and we are glad to be home to a star in the making.
Anoop is our own version of Sheldon Cooper, except he’s possessive about his switches. With him around, you better not be found fiddling with the air conditioner buttons or you'll have invited his wrath. Adding his own unique blend of spice to the team, Anoop is always willing to help. He is the backbone of our day-to-day admin work and assists around the office in general. Given the fair share of link up we have forced upon him, its probably in line with his interests to get married soon.
The splitting image of one of those young attractive teachers, Akshita is quite the disciplinarian herself. She knows what she wants and needless to say, she always gets it. Be it sticking to timelines or breakthrough design, she is always on top of her game. Her work speaks of her passion to do more and she is on a constant endeavour to be better. Her tiny appetite gives us quite a lot of extra food to eat during snack time- hey we aren’t complaining. Her diligence and creativity mixes together to create some of the finest work in the studio.
No fear when Rashid is near. That’s the team motto. He’s our in-house design ninja/samurai. With an industry experience of over 15 years, Rashid capably handles every designing challenge thrown at him. His cricket days have given him a nodding spirit that’ll reflect hard work and determination. His silence at IdeaSpice should not be taken as anything else but his focus in what he does. He is quite dramatist and always makes a world-class cup of coffee! With this man around, we can confidently say, “Have project, will do!”
Coming from a radio background, Maha is a new addition to the account management team at IdeaSpice, Maha is a quick study, with a smile on her face she is always ready to accept any task that comes her way. Her quick wit and sharp copy writing skills prove an invaluable asset to the team. Diligent, hardworking and friendly in her approach she connects with people quickly leading to strong client relations.
Nixon is your soft speaking, friendly guy who’s always eager for work and smiles through it all. You’ll always find him willing to lend a helping hand. Smooth in his approach to dressing as he is to design, Nixon is a pleasure to work with.
Micol is the string that helps keep us all in check. This seemingly meek, shy girl is a strong member of our team. Her composure and attention to details most often, save us from a tornado of confusion. Micol assists in keeping things in order. Maintaining files and color coordinating lists is her forte
