My name is Achyutanand Upadhyay.
I am an Graphic Designer. I was born and raised in Ayodhya, Uttar Pradesh. Yes! Ayodhya, birth place of Lord Rama. I have always had a passion for creating new things. I love reading and was lucky enough to have a family where everyone is a government employee as a teacher. And, here I am, trying to make a dent in the universe. I am excited to see where graphic design takes me, and how I grow as a designer.
BLAH BLAH BLAH...
What does the future look like? I asked myself that a lot as a kid. My story is pretty much like every other kid that grew up in the late 90’s. Sunday morning cartoons, afternoon Shaktimaan, evening Fox Kids, video games, milk with Bournvita, Nani ke ghar in summer. As a child, I drew in all the empty spaces of my homework, on wall, made home-made scrapbooks and created my own brand of greeting cards for friends. Those early obsessions have influenced my work and life permanently.
For as long as I can remember I have also used to express my creativity through writings. I am a secret writer too. At the age of fifteen I made a bold decision to give up traditional family background and take a admission in design school. I took a admission in Footwear design & development institute as Leather goods & accessories designer, where I could more fully express my creativity. After graduation, I worked as a product designer but my creative pursuits felt unfulfilled.
I was looking for a new challenge. I went on to earn my Masters in Communication Design with a specialization in Graphic Design from Avantika University. After and during post graduation, I worked in several companies and places like Delhi, Pune, Kolkata, Mumbai and Hyderabad. Being a professional designer is quite an honor. Not only do I get a chance to work with a variety of wicked smart people, but I get to help make their business goals come true. I love getting the chance to learn about new industries as well as the challenges that coincide them. Using my skill as a visual designer opens me up to a colorful life of possibility.
In December of 2019, I launched Kalptree design studio with a heavy focus on design and creative services. As the needs of my clients continued to grow, I worked side-by-side as a freelance designer. At Kalptree design studio I am focused on building strategic, innovative, and creative ways to communicate that message across all your marketing efforts.
