About Bina Nayak

I'm an independent Graphic Designer and Communication specialist with a BFA (Applied Art) from Sir JJ School of Art, Bombay, with 25+ yrs in the Advertising & Media Industry. I'm a Goan who grew up in Bombay, currently living and working at any of these 3 places- Bombay-Pune-Goa, at any given time. I design and write copy, and work independently on Films and Radio.

Agencies worked in: Speer Communications, DDB Mudra, Chaitra Leo Burnett, Ogilvy (All in Bombay, Mudra in Bombay & Madras)

In 2003, I shifted to Goa, living and working here till 2009. I was the in-house designer for Goa Tourism Development Corporation and worked as a freelance designer for several local clients and agencies- some of the clients I continue to service and design for.

I was Head of Design at the Walt Disney Company (India) Ltd. from 2010 - 2012. I now work as a Creative Consultant to their various Lines of Businesses, like, Disney Consumer Products, Disney HR, Disney Outreach, Digital, Disney Brand Alliances.

I consult as a Creative Director for Slipdisc.in and Adsource Advertising- agencies in Goa. I am also the main designer for Goa, 1556- an alternative publishing firm based in Goa.

I no longer confine myself to an office space and prefer to work from anywhere. I travel with my laptop and a 4G Internet dongle.

Awards: I have won a Clio, and was a finalist at LIA and Cannes.

Apart from Advertising and Graphic Design- I paint, illustrate, sculpt in papier machie and write. I enjoy writing and illustrating for Graphic novels and see myself moving in this direction.
