Transition from Full-time to Freelance
Transitioning from a full-time design job to freelancing can be an exciting and challenging journey. In an interview with Karan Gujar, we explore his path to becoming a successful freelance designer and entrepreneur.
How did you find your calling in design?
My fascination with design began with my love for collecting magazines and toys. I would eagerly ask my family members to bring me magazines from other cities. Initially, it was just a hobby, but over time, I became curious about how things worked and who made these designs.
Additionally, my family's connection to Marathi theatre and drama played a significant role in shaping my love for storytelling and visualisation. My late grandfather was a passionate enthusiast of Marathi theatre, and my grandmother supported his passion.
I didn't even know there are colleges that teach design. When I finally joined design school, it opened up a whole new world for me.
So, in essence, my path to becoming a designer was a combination of curiosity, a love for visual aesthetics, and a desire to do something different.
