Karan Kashiappa
The Envisioner

With exceptional design ability and the capacity to pull out quick and proficient design work, Karan has won many hearts at Circuit 9. With years of experience as a senior designer he brings to life any idea with his excellent colour sense, conceptualization and artistic talent. He is mostly found sitting in front of his system with his earphones blaring with music; but every now and then turns around to deliver his well-known ‘burns’ and clever comebacks. Being a hard worker, he executes his work with utmost passion and dedication, which reflects very well on his design. Watch out for his beard, it can give any man an inferiority complex.
The Conceptualizer

Constantly bursting with energy, Shalu as she is fondly called, adds that spark of life to any dull Monday morning. Packed with amazing design sense and an eye for detail, her strength lies in her ability to quickly adapt, act and create marvellously as an artist. She is passionate about anything she sets her heart to and does her job wholeheartedly with love. Whether it is work or play, she puts in one hundred percent effort into creating the best of the best for Circuit 9. Being a ‘people person’ she goes that extra mile in getting to know people; at the same time runs away from any animal that crosses her path. Her loquacious nature keeps her indulging in conversations about anything, everything and sometimes nothing.
The Artificer

Nandu or Nandu bhai as he is fondly called is a man of few words; but every now and then he has these witty comebacks that lighten up the mood of the entire office. He is constantly glued to his system while producing incredible design after design. With exceptional skills and a creative bend of mind, he brings life to so many concepts with his wonderful designs. Being a hardcore foodie, he takes his biriyani’s and chicken very seriously. There is no messing with him and his sharp timing, whether it is work, fun or food. Playing the role of a ‘guru’ to many people at Circuit 9, he is the go-to person for any kind of advice.

The Storyteller

We lovingly call her Nivi and being the ‘baby’ of our office, she is always compassionate and devoted to checking copies and taglines that leave our studio. Yes, she has an OCD with words, spacing, caps and commas. Do not fall for her dreamy, cheerful and doll -like-personality, as she is an enthu cutlet of the dark side. Well, we like to call it that. She’s also known to be a die-hard WWE fan-girl and is in fact a proud owner of John Cena t-shirts. She’s a no nonsense kind of girl, who really takes the art of copywriting very seriously. With her pleasing personality and inspiring swagger over the English language, she is quite the life of our copy-world.

The Networker

Swati or ‘choti’ is perhaps the life and soul of fun in the office. With her soft, sweet personality and a tad bit (yeah, right) of eccentricity, she successfully manages to get the creative team on their toes at all times. When she isn’t winning over clients with her ravishing persona, you can find her educating the office about all things, from British accents to green tea to ‘correct’ pronunciations. Bustling with creativity, energy and the passion to learn, Swati is a multi-tasker who involves herself equally in the creative side, as she does with the client servicing bit. Alert: you could overdose on her cuteness, but who’s complaining?

Being a pro at various software’s such as CorelDraw, Photoshop, Illustrator & Premiere Pro, she is capable of giving many digital designers a run for their money. She is a firm, rooted and cheerful girl, who compulsorily stands up for everything she believes in. Her editing skills isn’t the only thing that is killer, her driving skills are insanely good too. Her every day is like a successful and exciting game of Roadrash, which she never fails to win. When she isn’t owning the art of designing, she is mastering the art of cooking, with her lip-smacking authentic Tamil delicacies that keep the office drooling for more and more.
Karan Negi
The Philosopher

Popularly known as Negi, Karan is a super creative writer and conceptualizer with out-of-the-box ideas about anything and everything. He is everything that a typical creative guy is – humorous, off-beat and a wee bit eccentric. He is filled with a great sense of (dark) humour and never fails to express it. He is usually a man of few words, unless of course some bizarre topic comes up. Apart from his killer taglines and exceptional blogs he is hardcore gamer and would kill you if you disturb him when he is playing.

Storytelling is an art, and Pragya owns it, with her ability to keep one and all completely immersed and engrossed.
