“Don’t do it. It’s such a cliché.”
“Lots have come and failed. How will you make money without contacts?”
“So cool! You’re going to talk about awards and all, no?”
We listened. And every time we came across memorable design, we found enriching conversations around them conspicuous by absence. We knew many like us felt the same.
So, on a whim, on a rainy Sunday morning, a bunch of us figured we’d launch a journal appreciative of good work. And focus on techniques, outputs, insights and inspiration. We found sound advice in a few unassuming elders, telling us to focus solely on great work. And invest in lots of cotton to keep unsolicited advice at bay.
That was the beginning of Creative Gaga!
Creative Gaga is the launch product of Open Bracket Publication, which aims to publish trade-specific, knowledge-rich magazines.
We’re a bunch of fiercely creative folks who love great work, irrespective of where it is from. We’re curious about what makes work great. We devour techniques and dream design when we’re not working. And we’re just as eager to share what we gather, with credits where due. Creative Gaga hence aims to be a celebration of good design. And a useful reference for techniques and exposure.
We’re led by: _____________________________________________
Nitin Tiwari | Editor-in-chief
Nitin has spent what seems like a lifetime conceptualizing this magazine. From his days in the UK, to years spent in advertising, he kept his magazine dream alive. From mainstream advertising, he switched to publishing for the necessary experience.
Now that Creative Gaga is born, he is the final word on editorials. And our last line of defence.
Anureet Phul | Art Editor
Anureet has had valuable publication experience in the UK. She heads magazine design at Creative Gaga and leads the company management. Responsible of our sophisticated layouts and designs, she’s affectionately called ‘Queen Bee’.

The rest of us are currently in hiding, busy building up the magazine from scratch. We’ll be more visible soon, hold your breath!
