A quick little side project i worked on during my free time where the elements of the scenery reacts to the movements of your mouse, giving you a sense of depth. Each layer of element like the tree, mountain, the cloud etc. is a square image repeated horizontally. See this project live on Codepen.
I was also able to convert this intro an illustration that can be used as a wallpaper for your Dekstop, Tablet and Phone. Download it for free here.
Worked with Google on a 6 part series video describing how to create a YouTube strategy to help a brand stand out in today's evolving digital era. They wanted to stick with the YouTube brand theme for the video which required me to stick to YouTube colors-Red, White and Black for all the primary elements of focus like the backgrounds, texts etc.
This project had a really steep deadline, so we had to work almost day and night coming up with a storyboard concept, designing, animating, recording and sound mixing for 2 months. But at the end, when we saw the outcome and see it go live - it was all worth it!

The branding included a new logo, cover/banners, brand color scheme and more. So to understand the brand i had to ask few questions which will explain me their ethos and also help me understand the style they are looking for.
They wanted something based on the style of old retro art and something colorful as well. So i combined both of them and came up with a branding solution which perfectly fits the retro hipster category with a bit of a modern touch.
Created a video explaining the fictional/theoretical yet quite plausible concept of "The Upside Down" world in Stranger Things on The Curious Engineer. We also added Easter eggs and references of popular Movies and TV Shows like Inception, Ghostbusters(1984), The Flash and more, to power the excitement up in the video.
The illustrations were done using Illustrator and Photoshop. The animations were achieved in After Effects.
I created a short 8-bit intro animation few months back, it was really well received by the gaming community on YouTube. So i was contacted by Mssana Charlie-a well known Sims Gaming YouTuber for a new intro for her channel.
She was very fond of the 8-bit style graphics and animations from the intro that i made previously and therefore she wanted the same for her intro too. While working on it i also tried to capture some aspects of Sims into the intro, like the Diamond/Plumbob.
It was 13th January, 2017 and the day was Friday, the internet was freaking about it being an unlucky day - you know - because "Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day in Western superstition".

Wanted to create a new Flash Wallpaper for my Google+ Wallpaper Collection, not the Barry Allen version from the TV Show though, but The Flash from the Golden Age-"Jay Garrick" instead.
Although there are digital posters already there which can be used as a reference or i could have just screengrabbed the scene from the TV show showing Jay Garrick. But i wanted him to have a specific pose which wasn't there in any of the episodes and also i wanted to draw it first out of excitement!
So i sketched this piece and use this as a reference for the digitally illustrated wallpaper of Jay Garrick. You can download the wallpaper here.
After a working continuously on videos for a month, i finally had some free time to work on my own stuff. Doctor Strange was quite a new movie this time and i was really fascinated by him so i decided to work on illustrating him.

2016's installment of a fun little Christmas video series i started posting every year since 2015 where Santa dances to some disco music and wishes the viewers Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

The creator of Super Resume Builder aka Super was working on another app called Scientific Calculator Pro, and wanted a new icon for the same.
He sent me some mock-up designs of the app so that i can get an idea about the style of icon that can go with the app. Looking at the mock-ups, i came to a design decision of making the app icon based on the gradients as the app was heavily gradient design based. The colors of the icon were also based on the colors of the app.
3 icon types with color variations were made. The first one was based on the Square Root symbol, the second was based on uppercase Greek letter-Sigma and the third was based on the shape of an analog wave.
