Hi, I’m Deepak Chandra. My academic journey began at Baroda High School, where I completed my formal education. After that, I pursued a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Sardar Patel University, studying subjects such as business management, marketing, accounts, finance, and human resources, among others. My strengths in observation, creativity, and communication motivated me to further enhance my skills in these areas, which led me to the Baroda Institute of Technology. There, I received extensive training in graphic and web designing, as well as Adobe creative suite.

I started my professional career as a graphic designer and a major part of my work profile involved website layout designing, branding, curating visual content for social media, conducting design and competitor research. My core responsibilities were to provide support and services to international clients by helping them communicate their brand message to their target audience through visual materials such as logos, brochures, advertisements, social media posts, and ads. This allowed me to hone my skills in communication, problem-solving and teamwork as well as develop a strong eye for aesthetics, detail, and other technical aspects. While at work, I also gained proficiency in WordPress, social media, SEO, Google Suite, and Microsoft Office as well as project and time management.

During the pandemic I had the opportunity to reconsider my career goals, assess my experiences, strengths, and skills, and choose a path that aligns with my academic interests and future growth. To upgrade myself, I earned a postgraduate diploma in Marketing Management from my alma mater, followed by further courses in digital marketing, quantitative marketing research, and marketing research and analysis offered by the National Program on Technology and Enhanced Learning (NPTEL). Please go through my timeline for more details and feel free to contact me via email or LinkedIn.

That’s not all folks!

Yes, that’s not all, because continuous learning is crucial in this ever evolving world, and I am no exception to that. In order to keep up with the increasingly competitive landscape, I need to add new skills to my portfolio which helps me serve my employers in an efficient way. As an individual, I believe it is essential to be adaptable, accountable, and approachable. So, if you are considering a collaboration or hiring, then please reach out.

On a lighter note, I am a borderline nerd and a DC fanboy. I love tech, shitposting, social media, photo editing and a little bit of video and music editing as well, and YouTube is essentially my poison. Last but not the least, Lord Vader is the best baddie, Captain Kirk is the man, and Superman is the best superhero of all time! Wanna debate? bring it on then, drop me a line on LinkedIn or just an old-fashioned mail. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, and may the force be with you!
