Hi! I am Deepak.

Born & raised in Baroda, I did my schooling from Baroda High School & graduation from Sardar Patel University. My strengths in observation, creativity, and communication motivated me to enhance my skills in these areas, which led me to BIT, where I received hands-on training in web & graphic design.

I started my professional career as a visual designer with major part of my work profile focusing on creating website layouts, social media content, corporate branding, design and competitor research. My core responsibilities were to provide support and services to international clients by helping them communicate their brand message to target audiences through visual materials such as logos, brochures, advertisements, social media posts, and ads. It helped me improving 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, Microsoft Office, project and time management.

During the pandemic I had an opportunity to reconsider my career goals, assess my experiences, strengths, skills, and choose a path that aligns with my academic interests and future growth. To upskill myself, I pursued postgraduate diploma in Marketing Management followed by courses in digital marketing, quantitative marketing research, and marketing research & 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!

Container image

Yes, that’s not all because I am a constant learner and a keen observer, which not only broadens my knowledge and skills, but helps me stay ahead of the competition and serve my employers efficiently. By staying curious and open minded, I can adapt to changing needs and bring fresh perspectives, learn new skills and take on challenges. Personally, I believe in being adaptable, accountable, and approachable. These qualities enable me to build professional relationships, foster teamwork and communicate effectively.

On a lighter note, I am a borderline nerd and a DC fanboy. I love tech, shitposting, social media, anime, photo, music, video editing. Plus, I am a god gifted memer and a certified kitchen cook by AHLEI.

And lastly, Lord Vader is the best villain (terrible father though), Captain Kirk’s the man, Superman is our last hope, I am secretly Batman, and that’s the bottomline ’cause Austin said so, Cheers!🍻

Thanks for stopping by, and… MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU!
